Swing For Yzelda

Good day

Golf day for Yzelda van Zyl We kindly invite you to a golf day 12 Jan 2018! The golf day will be held in honor of a lovely little girl, Yzelda van Zyl, who got severely ill during last year December. Unfortunately the medical aid declined payment reason being they are on a medical insurance (Affinity Health) and not a medical aid. According to Affinity Health they only start paying after there has been a diagnosis, which unfortunately up until today has not yet been made. Apologies for the short notice but the hospital needs to be paid so we have a very short time to raise money. Due to the urgent nature of the situation we decided to have a golf day in honor of Yzelda to cover her medical expenses. The Golf day will be held at the Bronkhorstspruit golf club which is an 18 hole course First Tee off 09:30 We need a minimum of 23 x 4 balls for the day at R2000 per 4 ball 18 Holes that need to be sponsored at R5000 per hole (companies are welcome to put banners and any other marketing material relating to there company) We have also arranged an evening function where we will be handing out prizes for longest drive, closest to the pin, etc. The evening function will start at 19:00 If you cannot attend the golf day, you are welcome to only come to our evening function. Cost will be R250 for a non-player. There will also be an auction and more. Golfing and evening function fees must be paid to the following bank account (please no donations must be paid to this account, this is solely for the 4 ball and evening function) Account Name: K Myburgh Bank: FNB Acc Type: Cheque Acc no: 62370311707 Branch Code: 250112 Email proof of payment and golf players' details to myburgh.karin@icloud.com Please note that golf carts are not included and need to booked separately. We also welcome any companies or individuals to donate prizes. We still need a few more prizes for the competitions as we want to make our day not only a charity event but also a fun day. Our goal is to raise about R250 000. Any donations will be highly appreciated and can be deposited directly into the hospital account. (Please note this bank account details is only for donations) Bank Name: Mediclinic Midstream Bank: ABSA Acc no: 408 528 4508 Branch code: 632005 Ref (very important): Y van Zyl 55396 Email proof of payment to yvettevzyl@yahoo.com and midstream@mediclinic.co.za Please find attached a letter from her mother - Yvette van Zyl - that gives a brief description of how they came to be in this situation.

Wheel Well's 947 Cycle Challenge

Help raise money for children in road safety at Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge 2017

Over 30 000 cyclists will participate in the 21st edition of Joburg’s biggest cycling event, the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge will be held on Sunday 19 November.

As part of its effort to raise funds for the much-needed children in road safety initiative, Xperien has invited other corporates to “Peddle for a Purpose” and join the Xperien cycle team at the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge. The campaign aims to raise R100 000 and we are looking for more than 50 riders to ride on our team this year.

Xperien’s Urban Mining initiative aims at assisting non-profit organisations that provide education and assistance for disadvantaged children in South Africa. It is an ambassador for Wheel Well, a non-profit organisation that focuses on safety for children.

Xperien senior business development manager Bridgette Vermaak says Wheel Well is the only not-for-profit organisation that focuses exclusively on children in road safety. "It is a small organisation with a huge task at hand.”

Xperien Cycling team was established specifically to raise awareness for this non-profit organisation. The team and its supporters network at key cycling events to create exposure for sponsors in return for their contribution.

"With car crash death and injury remaining unacceptably high, our work is more urgent than ever. The exposure that we will enjoy during an event such as the 947 Cycle Challenge is immensely valuable and funding will give us wings to fly," says Peggie Mars from Wheel Well.

A sponsorship of R1500 will secure entry to the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge and includes registration fee and cycling shirt. Alternatively, to support this initiative, one can ‘Challenge a rider’ by sponsoring a rider per kilometer with a minimum of R1 per kilometer.

"We are deeply honoured that Xperien partnered with us in this challenge and grateful that we will be enabled to do what we do best, road safety for our dearly beloved children,” she concludes.
