… with special guests Evita Bezuidenhout, Jenny Morris & Lizz Meiring.
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 Friday, May 4 at 19:00.
The evening will be hosted by Evita Bezuidenhout with the dinner menu designed by one of South Africa’s most loved celebrity chefs – the Giggling Gourmet herself, Jenny Morris. An auction with once-in-a-lifetime lots will be the highlight of the night and live music by the acclaimed cabaret duo Godfrey Johnson and Nicholas McDiarmid will entertain guests throughout the dinner. Actress and comedian Lizz Meiring will be the event’s MC for the evening.
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.
“I am super excited to have been invited to oversee the dinner menu,” says Morris, “and I am planning a sumptuous banquet, using all local produce from the area, that will delight and satisfy the guests’ appetites.”
Morris also plans to add a touch of humour to the menu and is already testing a dessert she calls ‘Zuma’s Mess’.“Key ingredients will be moist malva pudding, miniature meringues, fresh cream, Darling Sweet’s very own toffee spread and all topped with guava … because he’s just fallen on his,” she says tongue firmly in cheek!
Adds Uys: “Guests can expect an evening of fantastic food, music and entertainment in the dazzling company of the most famous white woman in South Africa.
“And it’s no coincidence that it will take place in the Swartland – the only part of South Africa honest enough to call a spade a spade!”
Only 100 tickets have been made available for this very exclusive evening at a cost of R950 per person. To book, contact Tasha St John-Reid, operations manager at The Darling Trust, at firstname.lastname@example.org
