Signed Bok jersey on auction

I had the pleasure of being involved in two excellent causes on the weekend …

As the MC/auctioneer, I am very proud to have played a small part in raising over R 43 000.00 for the Chris Burger Petro Jackson fund on Saturday. The men who deserve the shout out though, are the Players4Players team, who put together the barefoot bowls day for this cause … And we had the most awesome time doing it! Seriously – Put it in the diary for next year – www.player4players.co.za … Barefoot bowls with a beer in your hand while raising money for guys who suffer spinal injuries playing our great game.

One auction item will only be finalised this week though … So perhaps we can take the amount raised to over R 50 000.00! Bok forward coach Gary Gold gave us a Bok jersey signed by all the RWC Boks (minus John Smit, as it was signed at the SARU Awards evening when Smit was already at Saracens). And we have decided to keep the bids for this incredibly special item open for the week. SMS your bid through to 083 415 3950. Bids close at 12h00 on Friday, and very single cent raised will go to the Chris Burger Petro Jackson fund …

Legendary for your bar?

 

And on Friday evening MC’d a very special function … Niall Mellon, a successful Irish businessman, changed his life in 2002 to focus full time on the Niall Mellon Township Trust – http://www.nmtownshiptrust.com, and they are now a significant provider of housing for the poor in South Africa. Better known as the “Irish Builders”, 650 Irish folk raised 4750 Euros each in order to come out to South Africa and build houses in Atlantis. This despite the seriously tough economic climate in the land of the black beer – And they seemed to have a bloody good time doing it. Thank you …
