On 12 October 2019, we hosted our very first ladies event. This occasion was held at the beautiful Durbanville Rose Garden where women from all walks of life came to be encouraged, refreshed and pampered. Through laughter, tears and “tips on mash potatoes,” we enjoyed good food, made new connections and created new memories. Women were impacted by the testimonies of the speakers to know and appreciate their worth.
