While Wine on Water is enormous fun for our guests, this event brings so much more to our community.
This is the flagship fundraising event for the Rotary Club of St Francis and every penny raised goes towards supporting Rotary projects in greater St Francis along with the many charities serving the community. These include those looking after our environment, the NSRI, the school and pre-schools in Sea Vista and child welfare organisations, our senior citizens, various animal welfare charities, and our Victim Support Unit .
But of particular significance is the employment opportunity to the young men and women of Sea Vista, who serve as the extremely important deck and street marshalls, keeping everyone safe and ensuring the event flows smoothly.
This year we were able to offer a work experience opportunity to one of the young matriculants introduced to us through the Sibanye Ladies group in Sea Vista. These opportunities go a long way to assisting these young folk who face a daily struggle to find employment in increasingly difficult times.
And then last but not least, our Wine on Water guests bring a much needed economic injection to our tourism sector and local businesses, and the spin-off of that is more employment.
The Rotary Club of St Francis is proud to be of service!
