Dinner of Hope

The first ever Ingane Yami Children’s Village Dinner of Hope on Saturday 2nd June was nothing short of extraordinary!

It was an opportunity for people who have a longstanding connection to Ingane Yami to be re-inspired, and for those who have never been to the Village before to come and see first-hand this incredible “light on a hill”.

The event was held under a 30m x 30m Dome on the Village’s soccer field. Guests were treated to a delicious 3-course meal, as well as an endless supply of complimentary wine and delicious cappuccinos. Top-notch entertainment was provided by the Hilton College Marimba Band, who kicked-off the evening with energy and passion, while local artist Majozi finished off the evening in style, treating the audience to his lively new singles.

As the name suggests, the whole evening was centred around the concept of Hope. Stories of individuals who have used what was in their hands to make a difference were showcased as examples that when we all use what we have in our hands (our talents, business, sphere of influence) to become a light, our combined lights make a significant dent in the darkness that surrounds us. Each guest left with a Consol Solar Jar as a reminder of the responsibility that we all have to be the light in our community.

A special thanks to all of the sponsors who helped make the event possible: TVG Durban Team Building, Consol, Kaap Agri Wine Cooperative, Crystal and Vine, Colombo Coffee, Lineage Coffee, Jersey Milk and ZuluFlora.

The event was an incredible success, and no doubt will become an annual event in Ingane Yami’s calendar.
