DStv and Ster-Kinekor offer auction items at ABF's Comedy Evening

The ABF comedy evening scheduled to take place on 19 August at Joe Parkers in Montecasino has seen great support from the industry. As an added bonus, DStv and Ster-Kinekor are offering not-to-be-missed items that will be auctioned on the night.
"We're also pleased to have two sponsors that have provided us with the following: DStv Media Sales are allowing us to auction a DStv Explora that includes installation and Ster-Kinekor is sponsoring a Premier card. This allows the cardholder and a partner to view one movie (3D included) per week for an entire year," says Sharlene Vallance, Fundraiser for the ABF. "The value of this incredible prize is R9,000. Both items will be auctioned with proceeds going to the Advertising Benevolent Fund."

"We are very grateful to be supported by our industry in tough times and we thank the following companies for taking a table: The MediaShop, Adsend, Beith Digital, Outdoor Network, Primedia Outdoor, Omnicom, NAB, Cinemark, The Citizen, AquilaZone, Ads24, Old Shanghai Firecracker Factory, Stick Communications, In2Ads, Moore Attorney's, Owlhurst Communications and Ebony and Ivory Advertising Marketing Promotions. While we still have a few tables left, we know this event will be enjoyed by everyone attending it," she says.

The line-up this year includes Joe Parker, Robby Collins, Eureka Nkese, and Mel Miller.
