Most people want to do the right thing and make a difference. We just don’t know where to start.

The Golden Hearts Charity Ball is an opportunity for you to contribute to changing the lives of a

whole group of young people who have had a bad start in life and help them to develop into

strong, well balanced adults. The future is in our hands, as the saying goes, and whatever we

can do to touch as many lives as possible in a positive and practical way can make a

difference right here in our back yard.

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have

made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead. Nelson Mandela

The Golden Hearts Charity Ball is a Black Tie, Dinner and Dance Event including wonderful

entertainment, exciting prizes and give aways as well as a mini auction to raise funds

for a worthy cause. Bramley Children’s Home based in Brooklyn is an incredible facility

that takes care of traumatised and abused children of various ages and backgrounds,

helping them heal, grow and develop their potential.

It is no coincidence that Nelson Mandela day has been chosen for this event. We believe that

our society has the potential to be the best in the world because we have the inspiration of

the great man as our guide. Be one of the amazing, generous and visionary people to

have a bearing on our future.

One young man has stepped forward to galvanise us into action on Mandela Day 2015.

Matthew Cole Fincham is the Champion of the Bramley Children’s Home and

together with La Volta Dance Club in Centurion, has been the instigator of this fantastic event.

He will be stepping totally out of his comfort zone and performing a special dance on the night,

which will stir the loins, as the finale to the evening’s spectacular entertainment.

Some incredibly generous and special sponsors for the night so far…. are:

La Volta Dance Club / Unlimited Events / Nima Marketing Solution

Seriously FUN! Flash mob Awareness Campaign For CANSA TLC (See video below to learn the dance!)

CANSA- TLC offers support to children affected by cancer. In conjunction with La Volta Dance Club, we are putting together an awareness campaign for children battling with cancer. June is the CANSA youth month where we promote a healthy living campaign for which we would love to promote a spontaneous fun activity that anyone can take part in.

This is going to be a FUN all-inclusive event engaging the whole community. We propose a flash mob doing a line-dance and performing it at various local shopping centres on the same day and exact time. We hope that schools, businesses and communities across the country will get involved.

Benefits of the flash mob:
smiley Encourage a healthy lifestyle amongst children & adults through exercise.
smileyPromoting awareness of early signs of cancer.
smiley A sense of team work, camaraderie and working towards a bigger goal.
smiley Encourages community service & can contribute to hours for life orientation projects at schools

The chosen song is ‘I Believe’ by ‘Yolanda Adams’ which is a very uplifting track with an inspirational message, that is perfect for stirring the heart strings as well as the body into motion. We believe that the more people are aware of this serious illness in children, the faster people will get diagnosed and many lives can be saved! The dance has already been choreographed by Julie Smit from la Volta.

CANSA TLC (Tough Living with Cancer) is a programme for children and teens diagnosed with cancer or affected by cancer (a family member has cancer). Support is provided to the family as a whole in both scenarios.

“No child or family should have to face cancer on their own,” says Sue Janse van Rensburg, CANSA’s CEO and cancer survivor of over 29 years. “Our TLC programme is dedicated to providing tangible love, care and support to children and families affected by cancer.”
