VWS quiz night fundraiser hosted by Café Roux – Thank you!

WHEN: June 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
WHERE: Café Roux Noordhoek
COST: R250

We asked for your support, and you brought it. The Café Roux quiz evening, in support of Volunteer Wildfire Services South Peninsula Firebase is sold out.
There may be limited seating at the bar, but that will be on a first-come first-served basis. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets and also helped us to promote the event far and wide. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Wildfires are a part of life in the Western Cape and every fire season, the VWS assists agencies in the Cape Peninsula, the Overberg, the Cape Winelands and as far afield as the Cedarberg, stretching resources to the limit.

With the exception of a full-time employed general manager, the VWS is staffed, run and managed by committed people who all have day jobs. Many of the VWS’ deployments are largely at night, providing welcome relief for day-time fire crews, but once a VWS crew comes off the line, it’s back to base, home for a shower and maybe an hour or so of sleep, before heading for a full day at work or in the lecture hall.

For the VWS to do its work, we need money, which makes fund-raising a critical focus when members are off the line. A registered non-profit organisation, the VWS relies on the support of the communities it serves, to be able to do what it does best: fight wildland fires.

The VWS South Peninsula fire base is setting up shop in Noordhoek, and Café Roux is helping by hosting a quiz evening, the proceeds of which will be donated to the VWS to help fund setup and operational costs at the new base.

Join us for an evening of great Café Roux food, fun and entertainment, interspersed with the intriguing tale of how the VWS came into being, and an engaging general knowledge quiz during which you can impress your friends and family, while making a meaningful contribution to a vital community organisation. Great food, great fun, great cause. See you there.
