This past Saturday, The 7th Annual 5 For Change Black Tie Gala debuted in Jozi with a sold-out house under the city light. It was an unforgettable night with a performance by smash-hit songstress Lady Zamar keeping the crowd on their feet with hits like ‘My Baby’‘Love is Blind’‘Collide’ and many more and keeping the night flowing was none other than South Africa’s multi-talented MC and personality Maps Maponyane!

The event raised funds and awareness for 5 social enterprise beneficiaries: Dlala Nje, Olico Maths Education, Hustlenomics, CRSP Dsgn and Enke: Make Your Mark. The guests got the opportunity to mingle with the young leaders’ of these organizations and learn how they’re making South Africa a better place and how to get involved. And adding to the excitement was the live luxury item auction where attendees got to bid on a range of high-end items and experiences – including the biggest item of the evening – a chartered private flight to and from the exclusive Leopard Creek Country club and a day of golf on the world renowned course.
