The countdown for this year’s well-established and much-anticipated Cell C Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo, taking place on Saturday, 28 October 2017, has officially begun. Hosted at the prestigious Inanda Club, located in the heart of Sandton, this annual event promises to once again surprise and delight guests.
Now in its third year, the occasion will see some of South Africa’s biggest A-listers, influencers, sports personalities and all round fashion enthusiasts painting the Inanda grounds in chic hues of pink – Pink Garden, to be exact – which is the theme of this year’s event. Guests in attendance can look forward to a day of pampering, gourmet food and drinks courtesy of Diageo and Ice Tropez, all set against the backdrop of an energetic polo match. Another much-anticipated highlight of the event is a special performance by the talented, multi-award winning Mafikizolo, as well as a spectacular show by the enigmatic female rapper, Rouge, who will be performing from her newly released album, “New Era”.
Of course, at the heart of the Cell C Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo event lies a great cause: proceeds from the day will be donated to Reach for Recovery’s Ditto Project. The project benefits women from low income groups who cannot afford to undergo reconstructive surgery, but are fitted with an external breast prosthesis after having breast cancer, thus restoring their dignity.
On display at the event will be a selection of high-end pop-up stores for guests to indulge in a bit of luxury shopping and peruse at their leisure. Guests can expect beautiful fashion pieces by the talented Nhlanhla Nciza and her brand NN Vintage, touch up their make up or try out the latest catwalk looks with Clarins, learn the tricks of the trade from ghd hair professionals, pamper their hands with a well-deserved express mani from SOHO, come and experience the incredible new Elie Saab fragrance ‘Woman of Now’, or spoil themselves with the latest in polo attire from La Martina.
Guests will also have the opportunity to sparkle even brighter with stunning Swarovski crystals from Jenni Gault International, experience the latest and most innovative in cellular technology with Cell C, try out sizzling shades from Erin’s Optometrists, and engage and learn from ladies who have survived breast cancer and are living strong. The cause’s resident specialist Radiologist, Dr Jowie Mbengo, will also attend the event, where guests will have a chance to ask questions and to learn more about breast health and breast screening.
“We are beyond thrilled to have these world-class pop-ups with us at this year’s Cell C Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo. These stores are a great way for our guests to unwind, enjoy a bit of much needed pampering and shopping, all in a relaxed and glamorous atmosphere. We encourage one and all to come out and spend a fabulous day with us whilst supporting and changing lives for a great cause.” – Edith Venter, CEO of Edith Unlimited.
