Pennies for Princesses

A highlight of the Cape Community Newspaper calendar is the annual Pennies for Princesses Women’s Day fundraiser. Now in its sixth year, tickets for the glittering gathering are sought after and this year was no different. According to Chantel Erfort, editor of the Cape Community Newspapers which publishes Northern News and its sister titles, tickets were sold out within a minute of sales having opened. Held on Friday August 12 in the ballroom of the Table Bay Hotel, a whopping R88 400 was raised for Dews of Quietness, a support group for women and children based in Steenberg. Filmmaker Nadine Cloete, from Goodwood, was a guest speaker. She is pictured with MC and radio personality Aden Thomas. More pictures on page 2
