On Sunday, 6 February, the aroma of freshly braaied salmon attracted scores of people from all over the Peninsula and the Boland to the Glendale campus.
It was a perfect summer’s day as old friends renewed acquaintances and new friends were made. Meeting under the massive bedouin tent around the pool, drinks table, popcorn machine and farm stall, they had gathered for one purpose only — to support the Glendale annual fish braai (now in its ninth year), and in so doing filling the coffers of the Medical Assistance Fund.
Everyone enjoyed the delicious fish, salads, fruit and ice cream, after which guest of honour, Philip Krawitz, stressed the need for the continued support of Glendale. It is an institution that holds such a soft spot in so many hearts, and continues to meet the needs of the mentally challenged within the Cape Town Jewish community.
Thereafter, auctioneer Joey Burke once again showed his expertise in making an auction a fun and exciting event, and in so doing raising much needed additional funds for the cause. The culmination of activities was the draw for two return tickets to London, which was won by Hazel Ginsburg.
The success of the day however, would not have been possible without the continued and magnificent support of our major sponsors, Snoek Wholesalers and Shoprite Checkers, as well as the culmination of many weeks’ work from the sub-committee of Julia Rabie, Selwyn Schiff, Bernard Zive, Selwyn Solomon, Larry Sherman and Mervyn Stein. Our grateful thanks are extended to them all. Thanks also go to all our donors, volunteer helpers, staff and all those who attended and participated in making this event a success.
