Gala dinner raises R300 000 for Thula Thula disaster relief

The annual "Phoenix Charity Dinner" 2017 was hosted in support of the local disaster relief organisation Thula Thula in Hout Bay.

The event was hosted by Tintswalo property group following the devastating 2015 fires that claimed their original hotel.

CEO at Tintswalo Property Group, Lisa Goosen says the event was a success, raising over R300 000.

Thula Thula played a vital role in assisting families that were left homeless after all was lost to the Cape fire earlier in the year.

The organisation itself is what kept the disaster management going. They were able to give back dignity and relief to the fire victims.
