Help spread more smiles with Comedians for Smiles

by Karisa

Now here’s the perfect opportunity to get yourself a solid dose of laughter therapy while supporting an incredible cause…

The Comedians For Smiles – Flower Power comedy festival is a fundraiser hosted by the Cipla Foundation – Miles for Smiles inititative to raise funds for children born with cleft lips & palates.

All the action will go down at the beautiful Villiera Wine Estate, with well-known comedians ‘KG’ (Kagiso Mokgadi), Tracey Class, Stuart Taylor and Mum-Z all set to perform on the night.

To date Comedians for Smiles has managed to raise over R8-million to facilitate corrective surgeries for Operation Smile patients, an incredible achievement that has helped to spread smiles & laughter to many little ones who really needed some help.  But of course, there’s always more to be done, and that’s where this year’s event comes in.

The evening promises to be one to remember.  Upon arrival guests will be escorted to the ‘Rainbow Gathering Room’ located in the main reception area where welcome drinks will be served against a backdrop of 70’s classics that epitomise the era.  The festivities will then move to the ‘Ignite Hope’ room where guests will be greeted by John Lenon and Yoko Ono and artistically designed T- Shirts by Louis Storm will be sold.  Guests will also be treated to gourmet canapés paired with Villiera’s award winning winesDinner will then be served in the ‘Peace and Love Rally’ area where guests will be captivated by talented fire dancers, Studio54 DJs, go-go dancers, an air guitar competition and dance off’s.  And then finally, the top-notch comedy line-up will be hosted in the ‘Woodstock of Comedy’ room.

A host of other spaces will also be incorporated throughout the evening, giving guests a full tour of the estate.  Cipla Foundation will also be launching its latest ‘Ignite Hope’ CSI campaign; and then the private auction of Louis Storm’s ‘Ignite Hope’ collection will round off the evening as key art pieces by the renowned artist will be auctioned off to raise further funds for this worthy cause.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Cipla Foundation Miles for Smiles initiative, which in collaboration with Operation Smile has helped put nearly 2000 smiles on children’s faces. #amazing
