Celebrating women of strength and courage

WOMEN OF STRENGTH: 'Come Whine with Me’ guest speaker Elanie Kruger with Stepping Stone CEO, Tersia Burger.

Stepping Stone Hospice’s third annual ‘Come Whine With Me’ event drew over 140 ladies to Glenvista Country Club on the evening of August 8.

Guest speaker and author Elanie Kruger touched the hearts of everyone with her incredible story of survival after being held captive as a sex slave. Her book, From Playground to Prostitute, is currently in re-print with talks underway to make a movie of her life story. She spoke candidly about the work she does now to clamp down on human trafficking, sharing some very sobering and eye-opening statistics for the ladies to take note of – especially when it comes to keeping track of children’s online activity.

GET TOGETHER: For Daniella Valetti, Chantal Downword and Laura Merredew, the annual ‘Come whine with me’ is an evening to let their hair down and relax.

Debra Wait from Nicholson Smith Distillers got the wine tasting underway with a selection of delicious red, white and rosé varieties while Trevor and Marelize Howard from Jubilant Gift Boutique in Alberante wowed the ladies with their beautiful exhibition of exclusive gifts and products.

SUPPORT: Chantel Kruger and Charmaine Peerson enjoyed the evening showing their support for Stepping Stone Hospice.

Hospice CEO, Tersia Burger, thanked the ladies for their generous support and spoke of Stepping Stone Hospice’s ‘next chapter’ – a future Hospice Village, complete with an adolescent wing to provide specialised care for children and young people with life-limiting illnesses. She also presented the organisation’s current ‘Last Wishes’ fundraising campaign which highlights some of the behind-the-scenes work that Stepping Stone does to help fulfill, where possible, the final wishes of patients.

ALL SMILES: Ravi Hall and Charlene Murray looking forward to a relaxing evening.

The evening ended with a lucky-prize draw, which included a midweek break for four in Dullstroom, kindly sponsored by Trevor and Marelize Howard and won by an elated Elani Fox.

TIME OUT: Seema Naidoo and Glenda Smith enjoyed the evening out and the opportunity to unwind.

The evening was the perfect precursor to National Women’s Day in celebrating the power of women and the difference they can make by uplifting, encouraging and supporting one another.

GOOD COMPANY: Nadine Swart and Christel Raubenheimer enjoyed an evening out with friends.

FOR HOSPICE: Hester Wilken, Anneke Siecker and Bianca Wilken show their support for the hospice.
