With media agency OMD as a headline sponsor, the ABF is looking forward to hosting media and creative agencies, and media owners at its next fundraiser on 28 September. Cash prizes are up for grabs for first, second and third place.
“We rely heavily on participation from our advertising and media industry contacts in order for the ABF to continue assisting our colleagues in the industry that have fallen on hard times,” says the ABF’s President John Bowles. “We are immensely grateful for industry partners like OMD who continue to support us.”
The poker evening will take place at the Bryanston Country Club from 17h30pm. Buy in is R400 per person which includes a Prego roll. Additional snacks and drinks will be on sale at the club. RSVP to or to book your spot.
OMD’s Marco Santos says the ABF is a worthy cause: “We’re pleased that we can assist the ABF in any way. We’re looking forward to a great night with industry colleagues, and in the process raising some much needed funds for the ABF.”
