Carols By Candlelight
Christmas Cheer And Actions
Spread some Christmas cheer this festive season. Join us at the Carols By Candlelight concert at Carnival City on the 11th of December and give back to kids less fortunate than you.
Now in its second year, the carols By Candlelight initiative brings together some of South Africa's top artists of many genres to sing carols and hymns and celebrate the spirit of Christmas. This year the event has moved to Carnival City and hopes to bring that famous Gauteng spirit of adventure and energy to a bigger, better and more exciting event.
The line-up includes Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Mandoza, Ntando, Tidal Waves, Joanne, Shabalala Rhythms, Soweto Opera Quadro, Liesl Graham, Tsunami Orchestra, Debra Fraser and many more.
"It is indeed an honour to be part of this event," said Debra Fraser, "particularly because it is for charity."
The Tomorrow trust and Ibbamo Trust will benefit from the fund-raising this year. All the money raised via ticket sales will be donated to these organisations in a fantastic gesture of Christmas spirit.
"Because the event is funded, we are able to donate the door money," explains Stacey Gule of Beyond Destiny, the event organisers, "In this way we can do the right thing, and help out those less fortunate than us at this time of celebration and family."
This musical extravaganza night promises to be an event not to be missed. The world class line-up has also donated their tie to make the event possible and is fully behind the drive to raise as much cash as possible for the Tomorrow Trust and Ibbamo Foundation.
Tickets range in price from R100 to R350 and are available at Computicket (www.computicket.co.za)
