Gabi Szabo (16), a pupil at St Cyprians High School, and James Shuttleworth (17) from Bishops High, took it upon themselves to raise money for the victims of the Imizamo Yethu fire.
The two have organised an auction as well as a gala dinner at La Parada restaurant in Hout Bay to raise money.
The restaurant will be closed for general public and bookings made specifically for the fundraising event.
You just call La Parada and make a booking for the evening. There will be a couple of high value items being auctioned off...— James Shuttleworth
I have been walking through the township and you can't believe the kind of devastation that's there and it got me thinking of who I am being in a privileged situation and we both just want to help out.— James Shuttleworth
The event will be held on Saturday, March 18.
Money raised will be used to support two initiatives, one to help the residents of Imizamo Yethu and secondly to assist with Darg's veterinary bills as they have helped attend to animals caught in the fire.
