Back to School Party 2016
On Saturday 29 October, Adopt-a-School Foundation hosted its 10th Back to School Party.
Guests, dressed in school uniform, pledged generously towards the work of the Foundation and over R4.5 million was raised on the night. In 10 years these parties alone have raised over R35 million for the work of the Foundation.
Adopt-a-School Foundation has grown tremendously since the first Back to School party in 2007, when it reported that through the adoption of 29 schools, 15 000 children were impacted. Today, there are 614 schools under the adoption programme and over 790 000 children, their families and greater communities have benefitted.
This event shows what can transpire and be genuinely celebrated when business, individuals and organisations come together for the greater good.
