Philanthropist and current Mrs SA Charity, Candice Robbertze, will host a star-studded fundraiser at La Rosa Mexican Grille Montecasino, on the 1st of November 2018 at 19:00, all in aid of CANSA. The event, aptly called Fiesta, will celebrate cancer survivors, empower women and raise much needed funds for this worthy cause. Guests on the evening will indulge in a Mexican feast with a stellar line-up of entertainment, including performances by 7de Laan actress and singer, Hildegardt Whites, and R&B singing sensation, LeAnne Dlamini, just to name a few.
CANSA is an organization close to Candice’s heart. “My dad is a survivor of stage 4 prostate cancer. Three of our family friends were diagnosed with cancer only weeks apart from each other, and one of my dear friends and a personal sponsor was diagnosed 2 weeks ago,” says the passionate businesswoman. “Cancer affects everyone of us, directly or indirectly. I may not be able to change the world, but if I can change the world of 1 person then I know I have made a difference,” continues Candice. Corporate Relations Manager of CANSA, Munnik Marais, concludes “Candice has been an amazing Mrs SA Charity for CANSA, not only with fundraising but also with cancer awareness. She is a wonderful role model to the youth, as we saw when she got her hands and hair dirty with the Junior Major Council of Pretoria CANSA art project. So, with Candice heading the Fiesta Fundraiser and the support of the public, we know it’s going to be a huge success.”
