Residents of the Eastern Cape showed their support in the quest to stop rhino poaching, at the Royalston Grand Opening and Fundraiser recently.
The glitzy event took place on the Royalston Exclusive Residential Estate and Game Reserve at the popular function venue Lake De La Vie.
The evening was hosted by Algoa FM’s Carol-Ann Kelleher and Centrestage Funny man, Gino Fabbri.
The lavish affair raised over R500 000 during a Grand Auction held later in the evening, of which R 370 000 was handed over to the beneficiary Stop Rhino Poaching.
Khusta Jack was the winning bidder at R 500 000 for a 1423m² plot on the Royalston Exclusive Residential Estate and Game Reserve worth R 880 000.
Arnold Tereblanche, a local Port Elizabeth businessman, bought several items on the auction totalling almost R9000, which included helicopter flips, Rhino paintings by Usen Obot and Southern Kings memorabilia.
The event, which was organised and publicised by Michelle Campbell Publicity, lasted until the early hours of the Saturday morning, with guests enjoying entertainment through-out the night by the NMMU Choir, The New Afroteens, Jason Hartman and Aston & Charlie.
