Carnival City has, as with previous years, pledged to support the 16th annual CANSA Shavathon taking place at the casino entrance on 2 and 3 March 2019. Anyone who wishes to support this fun, yet meaningful fundraiser can visit the CANSA station to have their hair cut, shaved off, sprayed or simply make a donation.
One of the most-widely supported of charity events in South Africa, this annual campaign was started in order to provide a place for people to go and show solidarity with others affected by cancer and help generate funds in doing so.
“We really encourage our community and visitors to Carnival City to come down and be part of this and contribute toward making this worthy cause a successful one once again,” says Michelle Smith, the Marketing Manager at Carnival City.
Between 09h00 and 16h00, the very friendly volunteers who work for CANSA will be standing ready and willing to change your look with a shaver, or simply spray some funky, colourful designs onto your hair with easily washable paint.
Sick of those long locks? CANSA would be thrilled to chop off your ponytail (of 25cm or longer) and use your hair to make wigs for cancer patients who have lost their hair due to various treatment methods. This year, donors of ponytails will receive a free badge of honour from CANSA.
For just R50 per adult or R25 per child under the age of 12, you can make your contribution to CANSA which relies solely on the goodwill of individuals, government and corporate partners to support projects such as the Shavathon to care for patients with cancer.
Proceeds will go towards funding the care and support programmes that CANSA offers, mainly rendered at CANSA Care Centres which deliver care and support programmes to those who are suffering from this awful disease. Bring your friends and family to the casino entrance this Saturday to make your contribution to a very worthy cause, having fun whilst doing so.
