TV CHEF and COOKBOOK AUTHOR, SARAH GRAHAM HOSTS WOMEN’S DAY PAMPER LUNCH IN CAPE TOWN TO RAISE FUNDS FOR ANIMALS IN NEED.
One of South Africa’s most popular TV chefs, food bloggers and cookbook authors, Sarah Graham, is hosting a Women’s Day Pamper Lunch at the prestigious The Yard Restaurant at the V&A Waterfront, to celebrate Women’s Day, Friday 9 August from 12pm to 3pm to raise much-needed funds and awareness for TEARS Animal Rescue.
Sarah is collaborating with The Yard owner, Abigail Bisogno and restaurant manager, Eva Mabila, to create an Indian-Mediterranean fusion three-course lunch, which she will share on the day, together with a talk about her latest cookbook, WHOLESOME, which is filled with nourishing recipes designed to reduce sugar, gluten and carbs without compromising on taste and deliciousness.
Sarah, who is a busy mother of three and based in JHB, is flying to Cape Town for the event courtesy of Flight Centre.
Says Sarah, “Having spent over eight years of my life in Cape Town, I’m thrilled to be able to support an organisation like TEARS Animal Rescue that has been rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming dogs and cats in the Southern Peninsula for the last 20 years. Many people don’t know that TEARS operates a mobile clinic and provides vital welfare veterinary healthcare for companion animals in low income and vulnerable communities where neglect, overbreeding, contagious diseases and various forms of animal abuse are on the increase.”
The Women’s Day Pamper Lunch, while it celebrates women, is open to anyone 18-years old and over, and will include a gin cocktail on arrival; live entertainment featuring the multi-talented Afro-fusion singer songwriter, Mae Sithole, the gifted self-taught opera singer from Hermanus, Mteto Maphoyi, and DJ Mamba; and a three-course lunch, that includes wine. There will be a cash bar available, and signed copies of Sarah’s cook book, WHOLESOME, will be on sale at the event.
Says TEARS General Manager, Lauren Carlyle, “In order to continue to work towards eradicating and reducing the suffering of animals within the vulnerable communities within which we operate, TEARS needs to increase its vaccination, sterilisation and education initiatives in those areas. We simply cannot do this without the generous support of people like Sarah, and the many volunteers and donors who help fund the important work that TEARS does.”
Tickets are on sale for R400 per person via Quiket.co.za with all proceeds going to TEARS Animal Rescue.
