“Once You Choose Hope, Anything’s Possible.” – Christopher Reeve

Join MES for a delicious six-course menu, prepared by Executive Head Chef Andrew Atkinson, and perfectly complimented by Durbanville Hills Wine. The inimitable Lizz Meiring will be the MC for the evening, while the talented duo, CH2 will entertain long into the night.

Funds raised on the HOPE-filled evening will be donated to the Metro Evangelical Services (MES), and work towards realizing the NGO’s vision “to change the heart of the city” within Hillbrow and the inner-city of Johannesburg.
