5 for Change

CHANGE (v) the act or instance of making or becoming different.

Five for Change is an annual black tie fundraiser dedicated to raising awareness about five inspiring social enterprises which are changing the way Cape Town gives back.

This project identifies the active members of society, the movers, the shakers, and the statement makers, to add social investment onto their busy ‘to do’ lists. The aim is to canvass professionals in corporate roles and entrepreneurs, whose fast paced, time constrained lifestyles do not always leave space for them to be exposed to platforms from which they can begin to ‘give back.’ Whilst climbing the ladder of their careers, social engagement and networking plays a key role in getting to the top. 5 for Change meets these individuals ‘where they are at’ by hosting a chic, high profile party that will become an annual fixture on the Cape Town social calendar.

The 5 selected charities involved in the inaugural 2012 campaign are: Let There be Light, Greenpop, MyLife, African Brothers Football Academy and Write on Africa. For more information on these amazing organisations check out:

This year, Nox Rentals is sponsoring a Prize up for Auction of a 2 night stay at a 3 bedroom Villa in Camps Bay. Valued at over R5 000. The prize comes with a private chef, for you and your 5 friends or family.
