There are two major fundraiser events for HOPE Cape Town, which happen in Cape Town and Dresden. Every May the “Ball of HOPE” invites its guest for entertainment, live music, a good meal and much more – doing good and feeling good at the same time. This event is always in cooperation with the Southern African – German Chamber of Commerce and Industry – Cape Town Office. Originated from a “dinner-dance” event at the Mount Nelson of the German-speaking Catholic Community Cape Town in 1998 it changed into one the highlights of the social calendar in Cape Town.
The other event is in the German autumn, always the last weekend in October: the HOPE Gala Dresden. Initiated by Saxonia Systems in Dresden, a sponsor of the first hour for HOPE Cape Town (thanks to Andreas and Kathrin Moench, who got married in Cape Town) and organised by Viola Klein the Gala is the major fundraiser event in the east of Germany and developed its own style, drawing guests from all over Germany to Dresden for this event.
HOPE Cape Town is grateful to all and everybody organising the events and those who attend and make the project work together with all the other unsung heroes who give money and energy to help those less fortune.
