Past Events

It has been a busy time in Rustenburg in the area of events. It is always nice to look back and see what has happened on various terrains.

Cuppa for CANSA – “Uit Ouma se Kas”

I visited the Cuppa for CANSA that was held at Casa Bella Venue briefly and was stunned by the large group of ladies that were attending the Ladies tea.  All the ladies were dressed fitting according to the theme:”Uit Ouma se Kas”. The whole atmosphere at the event was one of relaxation with the nicely covered tables with the mouthwatering food that waited to be eaten. Everyone was entertained by the beautiful music of Eclips and inspired by the funny and inspiring talk of Hannes van Wyk.  Some of the sponsors seen at the event was Clover, Willa Krause and many more.  Please support the events of CANSA, for it is for a good cause. You never know when you will be touched somehow by cancer.

Kevin Leo

The following was a letter that Rusties received in connection with the fundraising event organized for Nicoline Oberholzer.

I’m Nico Oberholzer, organizer of the Kevin Leo show and parent of Nicoline Oberholzer, whom I helped with the fundraising for the wheelchair and stand frame. It was for me and my family an outstanding privilege to be involved with the arrangements of Kevin’s Show and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Everything went smoothly according to plan except for the ticket sales that were weaker than we had planned but we had at least 50% of tickets sold through pre-sales and sales at the doors.

Approximately 250 people were at the evening performance which was characterized by comic and serious contributions, and it was the best performance that I and my family has ever attended. Not a hair was out of place throughout the evening and the highlight of the evening was when Kevin called our family on the stage with Nicoline in my arms, the evening closed with “My Way” and the whole audience rose with a hand clap. There was a lump in my throat and I wonder how many others had a lump in their throats.

To everyone who had tickets but was not there and had no excuse not to go, you have missed the performance of a lifetime. The feedback I received from people who was there proved that this event was one of those once in a lifetime opportunities that should have been seized.
My family and I would like to thank Andre, Melissa and Lizette Brits, Uncle Peter (Kevin’s dad) and Aunt Thysina de Beer, Trudie of Orca Security, Marie (Koster of our church) and many other people who were involved in the arrangement of Kevin’s performance, thank them for everything they did to make this evening a huge success. It’s wonderful to know that there are people who will put everything aside for a good cause.  I also wish to thank all the people and businesses for the help and donations they have made. The funds have been placed in a special account for Nicoline for future medical and orthopedic issues.
Thank you to everyone
Nico and Louise Oberholzer
