Chief Scout at Bloemfontein East District Fundraising Gala

On the 23rd of August the ‘Bloemfontein East District’ of SCOUTS South Africa is hosting a Fundraising Gala at 18h00 at the Floreat Hall of the Bram Fischer Building in Bloemfontein. Chief Scout Sibusiso Vilane will be addressing the guests.

“We believe that South Africa, and Mangaung in particular, needs Scouting now more than ever”, says event organiser Sechaba Tlhatlogi. “In order to run the Scouting programme basic costs need to be covered. Seeing as most of the children in the East district come from homes where their parents struggle to make ends meet, the funds raised through the gala dinner will be used to implement the Scout programmes and to acquire the much needed training aids and equipment. Additionally we aim to promote and expand Scouting in the area. Scouting prepares our youth to become responsible citizens and leaders of tomorrow.”

Chief Scout Sibusiso Vilane is the first black African man to have summited all seven peaks of the world and to complete the 3 pole challenge (North, Everest and South Pole). He will be the keynote speaker of the evening. The master of ceremonies is Motsweding FM Presenter and former Scout Mr GoitseModimo Seleka and entertainment is provided by the Mangaung Marimba Band and Choir Pulse of Joy, who competed at the Clash of the Choirs.

The Gala also presents an opportunity to network and for former Scouts to rekindle their affiliation with SCOUTS South Africa and discover how their Movement has grown and developed. It also gives current members the opportunity to meet and converse with their Chief Scout.
