"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 Acting President John Bowles. "We are immensely grateful for industry partners like OMD who support us."

The Poker Evening will take place at Fillet in Douglasdale on the 19th November from 6pm. Entry is R300 per person or R3000 for a table of 10 players. Snacks and drinks will be on sale. RSVP to az.oc.dmo@idalT.ogateL to book your place.

OMD's Marco Santos says the ABF is a worthy cause: "We're pleased that we can assist the ABF in any way and we are really looking forward to a great night with industry colleagues, and in the process raising some much needed funds for the ABF."
