The evening will feature a hilarious performance from 2OceansVibe radio presenter and stand-up comedian Angel Campey, who opened this year's Vodacom Funny Festival and was selected by Alan Committie as the 'Breakthrough Comic' to perform at The Fugard Fest of Comedy.

There will also be a special video insert with Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, courtesy of ZA News, while NMMU AA will launch Alumwine, their new wine club.

"Besides offering bargains on some really unique auction items, we'll also have lucky draws, goodie bags and a wine tasting, so no one will go away empty handed," says OGLE Media founder Stanley Edwards.

Items being auctioned include two full pages of advertising in Getaway Magazine (valued at R77 800); a tennis ball used by Maria Sharapova; an Android tablet; and accommodation from Protea Hotel, among other things. To pre-bid on the Getaway Magazine advertising, email .

Proceeds from the charity auction and Alumwine will go to TheHeart Charitable Trust to place OGLE Digital Content Download Kiosks in schools to give learners easy and free access to the educational content they so desperately need to succeed.

"Nelson Mandela stated that education is the most powerful weapon to change the world," says Stanley. "Many of us have benefitted from a good education, which is unfortunately not the case for many South African learners. Ogle Kiosks can play a key role in solving the current crisis by allowing both learners andeducators to access and download quality, curriculum-based education and edutainment-rich content for free without the need for a computer, internet access or data costs."

Doors open at 6:30pm and tickets cost R135. To register for the event, visit http://oglemedia.eventbrite.com. To find out more about OGLE Digital Content Download Kiosks, go to: www.oglemedia.co.za.
