On Saturday, 7 September 2019, Waterfall Schools hosted a Ladies Pamper Party in association with Dis-Chem – celebrating the joy of spring and the strength of the women in our community.
MC Kim Griffith Jones set the tone with her warmth and humour. “Is it just me or are you ladies also dreaming of a low-tech escape on a deserted island? We wear so many hats, as moms, as wives, as friends, as businesswomen… Sit back, relax and allow yourself to be pampered.” Kim shared the stage with Candace Van Wyk, Dis-Chem KZN Regional Manager, who highlighted 10 easy ways to make the most of how you look and feel.
Next up was stylist extraordinaire, Lynne McMaster from DRESS, who gave a preview of this season’s top fashion trends and how to wear them. Kim Els from La Roche Posay reminded guests of the importance of caring for your skin. Whether you are outdoors or exposed to artificial light, a good SPF is your friend!
After listening patiently, guests took advantage of complimentary pamper stations and browsed market stalls, including local fashion and accessory brands, all while overlooking the beautiful Valley of 1000 Hills.
“This has been our biggest fund-raising event to date and we were blown away by the support we received – from local business owners, suppliers and our own parents,” said Waterfall Schools Marketing and Communications Manager Hayley Dennyson. “Thank you to everyone who contributed to this wonderful morning. The funds raised will go towards the development of our school facilities and the Early Childhood Development initiatives of our NPO partner, Focus on iThemba. An extra special thank you to Candace, Antoinette and the team from Dis-Chem – you were amazing.”
Dis-Chem and their suppliers were incredibly generous, with a host of fantastic giveaways to spoil guests. “‘Pharmacists Who Care’ is more than just a tagline,” says Candace. “We are passionate about uplifting our communities and developing the future generation.”
“Thank you to our other headline sponsors: I Do Perfection for the decor, Highway Function Hire and Catering for the delicious food, Mustard Seed Productions for the sound equipment, and Neville Nixon Photography for capturing the day so well,” Hayley continued.
Guests and Waterfall Schools’ students were asked to bring in pre-loved clothes and household items to donate to the Robin Hood Foundation’s Mahala Market and we were thrilled to be able to hand over more than 40 bags to the Foundation. These will be used to bless local Gogos and Mkhulus.
