Sponsors of Miss Garden Route 2012
Garden Route Casino, which stages the annual Miss Garden Route & Klein Karoo Beauty Pageant, is thrilled to announce that Coca Cola has joined the ranks of sponsors of this year’s event. The company will be sponsoring refreshments for the “Phantom of the Opera”-themed gala evening on the 29th of September 2012. They will also supply a variety of cool drinks and water on the tourism educational arranged and coordinated by Mossel Bay tourism. Last year they went to Oudtshoorn and George and next year with the 10th anniversary they will be visiting Knysna. Coca Cola will also sponsor a variety of cool drinks to the 4 safe homes in the region!
Coca Cola’s Marisa Lategan, Account Manager on Premise, says: “Coca Cola supports many community projects in the Southern Cape and we are delighted to be part of this event which aims to raise awareness and funds for women and children who have suffered abuse.”
The proceeds of this year’s competition will once again be donated to Phambili in George, Malibongwe in Oudtshoorn, Lukhanyiso in Knysna and Creating Effective Families in Mossel Bay.
The casino’s Promotions Coordinator, Tryana Potgieter says that there are many ways for local companies and individuals to get involved in the pageant.
“The success of the competition as a fundraising and awareness-building platform for abused women and children depends on the support we get from the public and sponsors,” she says.
According to Potgieter, the casino will be staging a mini-expo on the night of the gala prize-giving. Upmarket shops, businesses and individuals in the field of design, clothing, jewellery, and make up are invited to purchase a stall at the mini-exhibition. The proceeds raised through the rental of expo space and stalls will be added to the fundraising kitty to be shared amongst the beneficiaries.
Anyone interested in taking a stall at the finale at Garden Route Casino on the 29th of September can contact Potgieter direct on 044-606 7541.
