The Rotary Club of St Francis would like to thank the broader community of St Francis for the resounding support for our Wine on Water event. We would also like to acknowledge and thank our sponsors Investec, for having the vision to believe in this event and to stand by us through two years of COVID down time. We hope to welcome Investec back as our event’s sponsors for many years to come!
The event has raised over R200 000.00 towards the many projects our Club supports and administers and this is in no short measure due to our community getting behind us to ensure the event’s success.
In particular we need to thank those home owners who generously allowed us to host wine estates on their beautiful decks, the many barge and boat owners who offered us the use of their boats and skippers to transport our guests on the waterways and to all those who volunteered and worked selflessly and tirelessly behind the scenes without whom managing the logistics would have been nearly impossible.
A special word of thanks must go to the young men and women of Sea Vista who were employed over the two days as deck and street marshals. They embraced the opportunity with enthusiasm and their work was so appreciated by our guests that they received a standing ovation at Quays Restaurant as they came off the barges at the end of the event.
Last but certainly not least a big thank you to the wine estates who supported the event so professionally and the various food vendors and restaurants who threw in their support wholeheartedly!
We hope to welcome you all back next year!
