It is Time For Jakaranda Children's Home Annual Festival of Lights!

By Press Release / Upcoming Events / Thursday, 29 November 2018 16:29

December is finally here and it is time to relax and spend some time with your family. Now you have the opportunity to book an outing with your loved ones, which not only promises to be lots of fun but can also make a difference in the lives of those children who do not get to spend the holidays with families.

By supporting the JAKARANDA KINDERHUIS LIGGIEFEES, from 1 to 31 December 2018, you will not only be making a contribution towards the future of Jakaranda Children’s Home’s 210 inhabitants but also get to experience an enchanting spectacle of the most beautiful Christmas lights and music.

“2018’s goal is to once again provide the public with an unforgettable festive experience. We rely on their support to equip us to be able to care for and develop our children because they deserve the best,” says Gary van Veenhuyzen, a member of Jakaranda Children’s Home’s marketing and fundraising team. “This project does not only provide much-needed funds but also introduces our establishment to people who might not have known about it before.”

Festivalgoers who attend the JAKARANDA KINDERHUIS LIGGIEFEES can look forward to being entertained by various musicians on selected evenings, like Dewald Wasserfall, EON, Saarkie, Joshua na die Reën, Tussen Sterre, Heuning, 2nd Life, Ampie, Sharoney and many more.

“I believe that all of us should give something back to the community. When you are healthy, you can consider yourself rich. I always try to help where I can and this reminds me of how blessed I truly am. The public will absolutely love this event because it boasts the talent of world-class technicians and will be supported by artists with generous hearts,” says Ampie about the opportunity to be involved in this project. 

In addition to lights and music, visitors can also expect good food and craft stalls, as well as fun rides for the kids.

The JAKARANDA KINDERHUIS LIGGIEFEES is proudly supported by Pretoria FM, Coastal Hire, dW Audio & Backline, Ehlers Attorneys, Status Hiring, Waste Group, Unlimited Events Group and LaserX.
