The Dome Swakopmund raised over N$36k in aid of CAN

The Dome Swakopmund raised a cool N$36 115.85 in aid of the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) during this year’s Ladies Night held on September 28 inside The Dome’s Conference Centre.

It was the second time that Namibia’s premier sporting and lifestyle facility hosted a fundraiser for CAN after its inception in 2017. All expectations were exceeded with this year’s show selling out ahead of time and with the generous donations of the guests and sponsors.

After handing over the proceeds to Celesté Steyn from the Swakopmund branch of CAN on Monday, plans for a 2019 Ladies Night have been approved and planning will commence soon.

“We are extremely happy with the turn-out and the money we were able to raise for the Cancer Association. The planning and execution were spot-on, and we’d like to thank everyone who was involved, especially those who made generous donations.

We will continue hosting these kinds of events, to assist those in need”, said Arne Putensen, who headed the organising committee together with his fellow Dome team member Dave Hammond along with help from Sugnét Smit and Christine de Klerk from Namibian Adventure Organisers and Mare-Lize Peddie from Tokkies Travel.

The total amount of money raised was comprised from a cut of the ticket sales, two exciting auctions of different goodie hampers, a collection from all attendees as well as the proceeds generated by the Namibia Wine Merchants on the night.

Headlining the event was South African comedian Craig du Toit Nel, who kept tears of laughter rolling throughout his hour-long performance with his witty jokes and comments.

Du Toit Nel’s act was complimented by a big variety of other entertainment, which included a demonstration by three fitness models, a lip-sync battle and musical chairs that had a special twist to it. The Dome Swakopmund would like to thank all sponsors for their contributions without their help, this magnificent evening wouldn’t have been possible.
