The summer night’s comedy includes the likes of witty MC Phil de Lange and hilarious stand-up comedian Lindy Johnson. Hypnotist Mitchell V will wow you with his mesmerising hypnotic exhibition.

In addition, Life is Precious will be running competitions, with prizes for lucky winners

Life is Precious came to life after a very successful first comedy fundraiser evening, where over R20 000 was raised for the Groote Schuur Hospital Haematology Department. Their mission is to help the sick, destitute and anyone in need.

The inspiration behind Life is Precious is Ferida Dawray, meaning precious. She was a woman of strength and faith who lived her life putting others first. Ferida passed away within a year after being diagnosed with a very rare cancer.

Taking the baton from her, her daughter and organiser Hajirah Dawray hosts annual fundraisers in her honour.

Life is Precious is about hope and giving comfort and support to those facing challenges and the families that support them

So save the date, dress to the nines and join us for an elegant evening of laughter, merriment and delectable cuisine in support of a worthy cause.
