Paul Fisher Benefit Evening – Spier Wine Estate

September 8, 2009

White Shark Ecoventures were proud sponsers of the above event for quadriplegic Paul Fisher, held on the 27the of June 2009. This event was hosted at the prestigous Spier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch and our contribution helped raise over R120 000.00.

Below is the thank you letter received from Paul Fisher’s wife;

“We wish to thank White Shark Ecoventures (Pty) Ltd. for their involvement and contribution, which helped raise over R120K on the auction items. Michelle Smuts and an assistant came along and, in addition to the sponsored prizes, also did a great job in sponsoring welcoming drinks – which was immensley enjoyed by all. Michelle and her colleague worked tirelessly in making this a truely wonderful event so, which was so enjoyed by all that we invited them to stay and enjoy the evening with us. We all had great fun!

Paul and I are extremely grateful for the efforts you made in making a huge difference to his life. We are overwhelmed by the willingness and generosity displayed by people like you. This will also go a long way to helping us achieve the second part of our vision, which is to start a half-way home. This home will enable families with older disabled children, the opportunity to send their children on a 2 or 3 week break-away period, to a place where they know their loved ones are cared for in a safe environment. There are very few such facilities available to family‚Äôs with disabled adult children and families making use of this facility would help sustain this venture.”
