David Bullard at the ABF Spring Ball

He's been fired at and fired, but he's back in business, more fired up than ever before! David Bullard, South Africa's accidentally controversial columnist, raconteur, socio-political thorn-in-the-side and highly entertaining and amusing speaker will be hosting the 2008 Advertising Benevolent Fund Spring Ball on 3rd September at the Ball Room, Monte Casino.
For forty years the ABF has been the vital crisis support structure behind the advertising, marketing and media industries in South Africa, taking care of people who have served in these sectors but have fallen on hard times - for whatever reason. Retrenchments, redundancies, injuries and illnesses are a daily reality, and once prosperous copywriters, account directors, photographers and many others suddenly find they can't pay the bond, let alone feed themselves. This is where the ABF steps in.

But the ABF can only provide its invaluable support with the support of those in the industry. Each year a series of high caliber events are hosted to raise the funds needed - golf events, bowling events, cricket events and gala events. Also, companies and individuals are encouraged to become members - taking advantage of numerous exclusive member benefits - for small annual membership fees.

So if you haven't already reserved your table, now is the time to do it! Be among 350 of the top advertising, media and marketing elite as we welcome in the Spring with a Ball. Serious sponsors will ensure the gala event of the year, all the while doing our bit to raise funds to support those who have served in the advertising, media and marketing industries that have fallen on hard times. Remember, it could happen to you, and you'll be thankful for the existence of the ABF.

Tables of 10 are a paltry R5 500, so make your booking today.

AND - if you'd like to be involved as a sponsor, you can take advantage of some of the best exposure return for minimal investment available. Call Sharlene today on 083 452 6191 to make a deal!

See you on 3rd September!

Advertising Benevolent Fund
Everyone knows the ABF in the ad industry, well that's how it used to be. With the constant flow of fresh blood being injected into our industry, the ABF has seemed to be left in the forgotten realms of the minds of the veteran crews of advertising.
