A gala charity evening was held at Suncoast Casino & Entertainment World to raise funds for the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).  The theme for this year’s glittering event was ‘Dress like a Star’ and an eclectic mix of funky fashion and sassy styling was seen as fashionistas lent their support.

The star-studded event saw a diverse range of fashions and styling ranging from Cinderella evening gowns to sexy cocktail dresses to funky ensembles of contrasting fabrics and prints. Umhlanga’s Sharon Wilson looked gorgeous in a floral print wrap dress teamed with chandelier drop earrings while Idol’s finalist Pixie Bennett opted for a stunning bold print ankle-length dress teamed with a black bow waist belt.

The multi-talented ensemble of performers saw the best South African entertainment has to offer. On the bill were local performers Roots & Wings, stars of the Cape Town City Ballet, Rory Rootenburg, Melanie Roberts, Clive Gumede, Pume Zondi, Lauren Laing, Pop Idol finalist Pixie Bennett, The Sharkettes and dancers from Eeny Meeny Miny Mo Entertainment to name but a few. The MC slot was shared by Aaron & Lisa, stand-up comedian Mark Banks, ‘Isidingo’s’ Robert Whitehead, Durban performer Iain Ewok Robinson and TV personality Terence Pillay.
