Kansa tea celebrated this year with denim, diamonds


The Cancer Society of South Africa (Kansa)’s annual tea is once again being held this year in Pretoria as usual.

On October 25, the prestigious fundraising event will once again aim to raise awareness and raise funds for victims and their loved ones affected by cancer.

The Kansa Tea, themed Denim and Diamonds, will be hosted at the Heartfelt arena.

Anita Snyders, Kansa’s national sustainability manager, says they are excited about this year’s event.

“We are so excited to offer individuals the opportunity to come and visit together for a meaningful purpose. During an elegant morning, guests will be treated to delicious food and hearty conversations while making a significant contribution. I’m crazy about this year’s theme and can’t wait to see the creativity it will spark.”

With the generous support of RNews, guests will be able to expect a warm and inviting atmosphere. The heart of the Kansa tea lies in the creativity and dedication of the hosts and women.

“They have the chance to put their own stamp on the event – each table will be a unique reflection of the host’s vision and interpretation of the theme.

“Our event offers an exceptional opportunity for businesses or friends to actively contribute and support Kansa’s programs that aim to ensure that no one has to deal with a cancer diagnosis on their own,” adds Snyders.

A table consists of ten seats which amounts to a total donation of R2 500 or R250 for a seat at a table.

The Kansa tea also includes a competition with judges to acknowledge the creativity and dedication of the hostesses and hosts.

Independent judges evaluate each table based on a set of criteria and judging takes place the night before on 24 October. A variety of prizes for the most creative tables can be won in the different categories.

“It is a great privilege for RNews to be the media partner of the Kansa tea this year. Cancer is something that many RNnews readers are familiar with, and we trust that our support of the tea will show our readers that we are there for them, in good times and in bad,” says Susan Lombaard, CEO of RNews.

“We look forward to sitting down again, like last year, with a few of our readers at our own tea table during the Kansa tea.”
