Art for a good cause

Posted Thursday September 06, 2018 by College Giving

At the recent Reunion Dinner the Class of 98 shared an update on their Legacy Appeal, an initiative to raise enough funding from within their year group to cover a full bursary for a deserving young College learner who will be starting his College journey in 2019!

Members of the Class of 98 took the opportunity before the dinner to meet with Sandiso Dlamini, a grade 7 learner at Merchiston Preparatory School and recipient of the Legacy Bursary.

Part of their story on the night was offering all the guests the opportunity to invest in this wonderful initiative by taking part in the silent auction of an artwork generously donated by Everett Duarte (OC1998).

A number of bids were received during the course of the evening but it was fellow Class of 98 stalwart Iain Evans (OC1998) who walked away with the spoils and the Legacy Appeal that benefitted to the tune of R18 000!

Thanks to Iain and all the other donors the Class of 98 Legacy Appeal has been able to help make Sandiso’s dream of attending Maritzburg College a reality!
