5 & 6 OCT – CELEBRATE SKABENGA’S BIRTHDAY WEEKEND AT THE OYSTER BOX
Anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting the Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga will know Skabenga, the resident cat. On 5 and 6 October, the hotel will be hosting birthday celebrations for their favourite feline. The ‘Under the Sea for 2023’ birthday party will include fun and games, as well as a special visit from Breathe Conservation, to teach guests about the importance of saving our oceans. Dress up as your favourite sea animal and stand a chance to win some amazing prizes. Instead of gifts, Skabenga has asked that you bring along dog or cat food to share with his less fortunate friends. The event will take place at the Pearl Room from 12pm to 3pm on both days. Entrance costs R490 per person and R350 for children under 12 with 10 per cent of all proceeds going towards the work of preserving marine life. Details: www.oysterboxhotel.com
