2018 is the 33rd year that Wynberg Rotary Club has staged The Last Night of the Proms in Cape Town City Hall. Normally held in mid-March, this year the City Hall underwent a major refurbishment of the auditorium and we had to delay the performance to end September. Our concerns about the postponement were unfounded, and both evenings’ concerts on the Saturday and Sunday were sold out again, as they have been for the last 5 years or so.
On Tuesday 28 August, Les Quiserables won the Rotary Club of Wynberg’s 5th Rotary Quiz Night with a grand total of 64 piping teams “I thought this was speed dating” and “The Motley Crew” by 2 points. Waterfront Rotary took best Rotary team and Maitland Group the Corporate Trophy.
This year the Rotary Quiz Night celebrated its 5th Birthday at the Earth Fair Market in Tokai helped raise more than R12 000 in funds for Library Corners for Schools in Cape Town. With a record crowd of over 240 people the venue was packed with food stalls Ciao Bella and Rack ‘n Grill being kept busy with orders, the event was a success and was very entertaining.
