It was the end of the road for Bettie after 17 years. Bettie couldn’t get going without some help, but once she was on the move, she couldn’t stop either unless she was turned sideways in order to glide to a stop. Most days Bettie couldn’t accomplish her important daily tasks and everyone had to wait for help.
Everything that could be replaced in Bettie had already been replaced.Finally came the phone call, there was nothing more to be done for Bettie.
Louw & Heyl and Frese & Moll Partners sponsored a SUPERHERO golf day with one goal in mind: We must buy a new minibus for the children at Maria Kloppers Campus with the funds raised! The golfers went all out. They played hard, they sponsored holes, they donated extra money, they bought raffles, they bid on auction items and they deposited all loose change into brown paper bags. A whopping R239 542 was the profit for the day.
Creators United held a 24 hour “Online Gaming Event” with a SUPERHERO theme as well and the R93 105 they raised also went towards the new bus. These players never closed their eyes as they played through the night and competed internationally.
However, a 16-seater minibus does not come cheap and it took the generosity of one man to clinch the deal. At the golf day, Mark White from Mark White Nissan announced to his team that he would provide a brand new 16-Seater Nissan at R300 000 to make sure that the kids from Maria Kloppers would never have to push-start Bettie again.
Thank you to the main sponsors of the golf day, Louw and Heyl Attorneys and Frese & Moll Partners. They made sure that every Rand raised went to our children.
Thank you Creators United for a brand new, successful fundraising project.
Thank you to all the children and staff at Maria Kloppers Campus that continuously had to support Bettie to take them to school or other destinations.
Thank you to everyone who supported the golf day and gaming event.
