The Darling Trust, a charitable organisation – founded by South African icon Pieter-Dirk Uys – is set to host a spectacular black tie dinner and auction that will take place at Evita se Perron in Darling on Thursday, April 26, 2018.

The Darling Trust was established in August 2003 by founding member and current patron, Pieter-Dirk Uys and was set up to assist previously disadvantaged communities of Darling. 

Their main aim is to empower individuals to help themselves, mainly through participation in the sectors of education, skills development and health.

Since The Darling Trust came into being it has been a constant presence in the Darling community by facilitating different ongoing projects in aid of the town’s residents such as free weekly music and art lessons for children from the community, the building of a swimming pool in 2009 and an Early Childhood Development Centre that hosts around sixty pre-school Grade R children daily and an annual talent show at Evita se Perron that is open to all members of the community to showcase their talents.

The evening will be hosted by Evita Bezuidenhout with the dinner menu designed by top SA chef Reuben Riffel. An auction with once-in-a-lifetime lots will be the highlight of the night and live entertainment will entertain guests throughout the occasion.

Says trustee and organiser Hentie van der Merwe: “This will be the first in what we hope becomes a bi-annual event, so we are all set to make this the benchmark by which all future auction dinners will be measured.

“We are super excited that we have Reuben Riffel on board to oversee the dinner and of course delighted that Tannie Evita herself will play an integral part in the event.”

But, if you want to be part of this very special occasion, you will have to move fast as there are only 100 tickets available for the evening at a cost of R950 per person.
