Glits and glamour in aid of rhinos


It was all masked glamour and glitz as supporters of Project Rhino came from every corner of Durban and the Upper Highway to do their bit to help the Pinetown-based organisation with their mission to secure the white and black rhino populations. Guests, dressed in their finest and donned some of the most enchanting masks for the organisation’s fundraising Masked Ball for Conservation, which was hosted at Capital Zimbali Resort in Ballito. It was a brilliant evening of entertainment that included music by Qadasi & Maqhinga, ballroom dancing, a fashion show supported by Karen-Monk-Klijnstra, a live auction and more. Guest speakers included adventure athlete Ryno Griesel and Michael Charton from Inherit SA, who specialises in human connection through story. Project Rhino brand ambassadors, former Springbok and Sharks captain Keegan Rhys Daniel and Jawbone Brand Experiences CEO Sven Reinertsen, were also there to show their support.
