PRESS RELEASE Stand-up for charity

October 2011 – Comedians John Vlismas and Kurt Schoonraad, will be joined by top magician and entertainer, Marcel Oudejans, for an evening of laughter, fun and fundraising at the annual Breadline Africa comedy event. We are hoping to send more than 1 500 children from disadvantaged communities to the beach for a fun day in December, with funds raised during the evening and support received from overseas donors.

“Despite living so close to the coastline, most of these children have never seen the sea,” Director of Breadline Africa, Tim Smith said. “The outing will leave a lasting memory for the children, many of whom are exposed to poverty, crime and abuse on an almost daily basis. The comedy show will help in our efforts to raise money for this special annual outing.”

The outrageously talented trio will present their routines at the Grand Daddy Hotel in Long Street on 27 October 2011 from 6:30pm. Co-founder and presenter of the recently launched Taxi Radio, Grant Jansen, will MC the evening.

Book now for this exclusive event – limited tickets available. Tickets cost R250 per person and will include a complimentary drink on arrival and snacks during the evening – all proceeds will go towards the seaside event. For bookings call Linda on 021 418 0322 or email her at marketing@breadlineafrica.org.za. For more information on Breadline Africa, visit www.breadlineafrica.org.
