Guests had the opportunity to mingle with the leaders of these organisations and learn how they’re making South Africa a better place and how to get involved. Adding to the excitement was the live luxury item auction where attendees got to bid on a range of high-end items and experiences – including the biggest item of the evening – a chartered private flight to and from the exclusive Leopard Creek Country club and a day of golf on the world renowned course.
“Launching the 5 For Change Black-tie Gala in Joburg was a long time dream for us and the evening absolutely surpassed our wildest dreams. We are so grateful to Joburg for embracing us like this!", said 5 For Change MD Robyn Deutsch.
An important element this year was giving recognition to those in South Africa who give back to the community and the event founders were proud to present South Africa’s multi–award winning TV presenter, philanthropist, reality star and style icon Bonang Matheba with the first-ever 5 For Changemaker Award. She was celebrated on the night for her work as the founder of The Bonang Matheba Bursary Fund and for using her platform to advance social justice issues in South Africa and around the world.
The night featured a performance by SA songstress Lady Zamar, keeping the crowd on their feet, and keeping the night flowing was multi-talented MC and personality Maps Maponyane.
