Epilepsy South Africa Wine Auction brings it to the table

In Uncategorized on November 3, 2010 at 10:02 am

The 4th Annual Wine Auction of Epilepsy South Africa proved to be another great success on Thursday, the 28th of October 2010, raising almost R70,000 from lots and selected raffle items. Cipla Medpro stepped in as main sponsor for this year’s event that took place at the luxurious Westin Grand Ballroom in Cape Town.

Familiar faces Jonty Rhodes, Cindy Nell, Paul Buckby (MC) and Dr Divan Serfontein (Cipla Medpro) joined guests in bidding for exclusive and unique wine lots, art and sports memorabilia. The wines that were up for auction included vintages from as far back as 1971, with impressive collector’s sets of Alto estate wines selling for R900 per bottle, Ernie Els at R1,100 per bottle, framed cricket shirts signed by legendary Jonty reached up to R3,000 per frame and an interesting set of the popular Amarula Liqueur selling for an amazing R2,700. Just imagine the excitement that stirred in the audience as these gems were offered!

The sounds of Jazz Trio, Urban Groove, as well as the classical allure of renowned Sterling EQ, produced an evening with a memorable, lingering aftertaste that will be hard to surpass next year at the 5th Annual Wine Auction!

Cipla Medpro and Epilepsy South Africa National Office thank everyone who supported this fundraising event and would like to invite you to join them for the 2011 version of this significant entry on the Cape Town social calendar.
