The Cape Leopard Trust 2015 Fundraiser - Wine, Art, Conservation

We are delighted to announce that bookings are now open for our 2015 fundraiser, which will be hosted by our sponsor and loyal partner Leopards Leap Family Vineyards in Franschoek on Saturday, 15 August.

An entertaining and fun filled luncheon with delicious food created by resident chef Pieter de Jager, assisted by culinary counterparts Michelle Theron of Pierneef La Motte, Christo Pretorius of the 12 Apostles Hotel & Spa, and Floris Smith of Bushmanskloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat, will be paired with exquisite Leopards Leap wines.

The lunch will be followed by a fundraising auction, with the first item to be confirmed an exquisite leopard maquette sculpted by famed South African artist, Dylan Lewis.

The limited edition bronze is one of 15 in a series, weighing in at 31kgs and valued at R285 000. A proud sponsor of the Trust almost since its inception, Leopards Leap will be joined by FNB and Fusion Global as event partners.

Thanks to their continued commitment 100% of the proceeds raised from ticket sales and the auction will be donated to the work of The Cape Leopard Trust.

Tickets are now on sale at R1500 per person through event organisers ‘Opulent Living’.
