On 2 July, 400 guests, dressed in school uniforms, attended the inaugural Bloemfontein Back to School fundraising dinner in support of education foundation, Kagiso Shanduka Trust. The event took place at the Emoya Estate and was hosted by Deputy President and Shanduka Foundation Chairperson, Cyril Ramaphosa, Free State Premier Ace Magashule, Free State MEC for Education, Tate Makgoe and Kagiso Trust Chairperson, Reverend Frank Chikane. Over R1,8 million was raised for this project, through pledges and an auction on the night – which was highly successful. The Gerald Hinde auction item went for R25 000.00.
