Dear Valued Friends
On behalf Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, I would like to thank you for attending our events last week hosted by Stephen Lemaitre of Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou (St Julien 2nd Growth) in Johannesburg and Cape Town. We hope you enjoyed the events as much as we enjoyed hosting them. As mentioned at each of the four dinners, the International Wine Company’s charity of choice is “FEED SA”. And as we sit down to enjoy some of the finest cuisine South Africa has to offer, together with the finest wines that the world has to offer, we should always remember those around us less fortunate than ourselves.
As mentioned too, Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou has graciously donated a MAGNUM of Ducru 1999, signed by Bruno Borie, owner of this prestigious estate, valued at R4,500. As mentioned during each dinner, this magnum would be auctioned off during a silent auction held this week, the bottle going to the highest bidder, with the entire proceeds of this auction being donated to FEED SA. Furthermore, in order to submit your bid on this bottle, whether you “win” the bottle or not, you will be charged a mere R25 for the submission of your bid. This too shall be donated to FEED SA.
Let’s all hold hands, join forces and help feed some delightful kids most deserving of our efforts, and in so doing, ensuring a brighter future for all!!
The winner of this silent auction will be announced on our website at www.internationalwines.co.za on our “news and events” page on the 14th August 2010.
The deadline for submission of bids is the 10th August 2010.
Herewith attached is a “bid sheet” which can be emailed or faxed back to me at your convenience. Of course, any other donations that you may wish to make are always welcome and can be sent to FEED SA by contacting them directly. Please see below more information on this wonderful non-profit organization and visit www.feedsa.co.za
FEED SA was formed under the Section 21 Act (Registration number 200/04246/08 NPO number 77015)
FEED SA is a non-profit organization, whose main aim is to establish feeding programmes within the townships for all those who receive no other forms of funding whatsoever, and for the children who go to school on an empty stomach.
We also implement the building and setting up of crèches, from the infrastructure to the operations and curriculum.
FEED SA works hands on in the townships on a grass roots level, sourcing their beneficiaries through prominent and reliable contacts within the communities.
In the interest of transparency, reports are given at the end of each month with the status of each beneficiary.
HEALTHY CHILDREN NEED A HEALTHY AND BALANCED LIFESTYLE, CONSISITING OF NUTRITIOUS FOOD, EDUCATION, EXCERCISE AND LOVE!
THE FUTURE OF OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY IS IN THEIR HANDS.
Best wishes and santé,
