Who are the amazing charities that will benefit from your generosity to CIJ 2023?

Here is to a miracle filled and blessed 2024 – I trust your year has started well and continues to be awesome. So the Christmas ball has started to roll as we prepare to celebrate our 24th year of enabling the miracle of Christmas giving to happen twice a year.  A joyous celebration was had by all those who attended CIJ2023. An amazing 250 people came together to raise R215000.00 for our dedicated charities. In order to create another miracle this year I am reaching out to ask you to be a CIJ2024 miracle maker. We will be achieving our “Christmas in July Miracle” with live auction, silent action and a raffle on Saturday 27 July 2024 at the Indaba Hotel, Gauteng. Park Village Auctioneers will be running both the online and in person event auctions.

For the miracle to happen we need you to support the auctions and raffle by the way of sponsoring a prize/s for the online and live auction plus the raffle at our Black Tie Dinner Dance Charity Christmas Miracle Celebration.  Please be aware that all funds raised on the night from your sponsorship all go to the charities.
