National Braai Day gears up for its first big event
It's all systems go for the National Braai Day team as they prepare for
their first ever National Braai Day celebration event taking place in
Cape Town on the 24 September.
Presented by Good Hope FM and Savanna, the event is set to kick off at
10:00 am and promises a line-up of live music by household bands such as
Mi Casa, Die Heuwels Fantasties and Jack Parow. Me and Mr Brown, and Bed
on Bricks will also take to the stage to entertain the 5000 keen braai
supporters that are expected to attend the event. The event will take
place at Hamiltons Rugby Club, and is open to all members of the public
18 years and older.
Head of the National Braai Day initiative, Jan Braai has this to say,
"We are very excited about this event, we view this pilot event as a
test and, if it is a success, we'll look at hosting the same type of
celebration events in other cities around South Africa in the
forthcoming years on 24 September."
The tickets can be purchased on www.webtickets.co.za for just R80 you'll
indulge in the best of SA's local music, a free Savanna and Kameelhout
boerewors roll. More drinks and braai will be available on sale.
"Even though this is a significant event for National Braai Day and our
mission to unite 50 million South Africans around the fire, we encourage
all South Africans to braai wherever they are in the world on 24
September, they don't need to be at Hamiltons to take part in the
celebrations." Braai continues.
For those who will be attending the celebrations in Green Point, the
occasion promises to ignite the City with a wholesome offering of the
nations famous braai heritage.
In conclusion, an excited Braai adds, "In the future we are hoping to
find a way to make it possible within the safety regulations of the City
of Cape Town to allow people to bring their own braais and drinks but
this year, for safety's sake, all braaing will be done by our
National Braai Day is a non-profit organisation and all profits made at
the event will be used to enable underprivileged people to braai on
National Braai Day in 2013.
