Dancing, dining and donations were the order of the day at the annual Poached Rhino ball in February. Guests were treated to a tantalizing dining experience; whilst dancing to the ever popular ‘Uncorked’ certainly aided the digestion and encouraged the crowd to dig deep.
A spectacular total of R350,000 was raised during the evening, thanks in part, to some rather special auction prizes provided by the charity’s generous sponsors. In addition to helping South Africa’s wildlife, the evening also provided the opportunity to donate much needed funds to the Voluntary WildFire Services and R7000 was awarded to the organization to enable them to continue the fight against the all too frequent fires that have plagued the area this summer.
Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, Poached Rhino will also be able to continue its fight for the survival of the rhino, empowering it to continue to fund existing and new conservation projects, which remain crucial to the rhino in South Africa.
This means Poached Rhino have paid out over R2,000,000 to 3 projects, since inception just over 3 years ago, to make a difference and to help save this iconic animal from being wiped off the face of the earth!
