Eikestadnuus, in collaboration with numerous sponsors and supporters, will be honouring one inspirational woman from our town as part of their Vroue Inspirasie Dag, held on October 24 at the Zarose Olive Estate in Devon Valley. This year the theme is “Gratitude” and women from Stellenbosch are invited to come and enjoy this day with celebrities in the entertainment and hospitality industry. The day is presented for the benefit of the Hanna Foundation and one inspirational woman from the community will also be honoured at the event for her work in the community.
Many celebrities in the hospitality industry will be entertaining the guests in an interesting and unique way. On the bill for the day is Aleit Swanepoel (of the Aleit Group, one of the country’s leading and leading entertainment professionals); singer Leah (currently host of Boer Soek ‘n Vrou on kykNET); Alicia Buckle (renowned makeup artist and former student of Isa Carstens Academy); and Yolande Swanepoel (from Isa Carstens Academy).
All this is under the direction of experienced Stellenbosch actress Elsabe Daneel, who will be the master of ceremonies. Heleen Meyer, a well-known food writer and stylist and a working mother who is very careful about eating healthy food, will be another speaker at the event. The eventual winning lady will be someone who is regarded as a leader in her community, but also as someone with compassion, caring for others and going out of her way to make others’ lives better and inspire people to improve their circumstances. Guests at the Inspiration Day will not only be spoiled with welcoming drinks and a stylish breakfast prepared by students at the Private Hotel School in Vlottenburg, but will also receive a gift package with a variety of products.
