Namibia’s biggest tea party set for Saturday

Staff Reporter

The hip and happening Ethnix, Maranatha, Chikune and the Hot Pocket Band will be doing their bit in the fight against cancer when they perform at Namibia’s Biggest Tea Party for Hope on Saturday.

Set for the Windhoek High School’s Vegkop stadium, the event will also boast a wonderful line-up of acclaimed and well-researched speakers in the likes of MVA chief executive officer Rosalia Martins-Hausiku, Dr. Esperance Luvindao, transformational coach Seija Amaambo, and a cancer survivor.

This year’s theme is ‘We Are Victorious!, and the dress code is ‘Time to Shine!’

The guest with the most interesting hat wins a prize of a weekend away for two at one of the Gondwana resorts at Etosha. Other prizes include entry to a marriage or single-person seminar valued at N$1 000, lunch for two at Stellenbosch Restaurant, a weekend away at a local hotel valued at N$2 000, and a two-month coaching contract with Elevate Edify Life Coaching cc valued at N$3 000.

Now in its seventh year, the event started off as a small intimate gathering of concerned women spreading awareness about cancer, and has now transformed into an elegant annual event known as Namibia’s Biggest Tea Party for Hope (NBT4HOPE).

The aim is to uplift those affected by cancer and afford vulnerable Namibians the opportunity to receive cancer screenings for free, said founder Violette Mureko.

“It takes more than just wearing a pink ribbon; we want to use our God-given abilities and with the help of the broader community support the fight against cancer through creating a platform that informs people about the dangers of cancer,” she told VIBEZ!

This charity fundraising event has since grown in leaps and bounds, raising over N$75 000 since its inception. Additionally, over this period, NBT4HOPE has managed to support about 2 800 vulnerable people in and around Windhoek to receive free cancer screening with the help of the Cancer Association of Namibia.

Mureko said their deepest hope is to touch as many lives as possible through education on the risk factors and prevention of cancer, and ultimately inspire people to lead healthy, balanced lifestyles.

This includes not only women, but also men and children because cancer does not discriminate.

The event starts at 15h00 and ends at 19h00.

Tickets are available at Webtickets at N$300 each.
