Goldfields Casino plays host to this year’s CANSA Shavathon on Saturday the 1st of March. This is the first time that the casino has played host to the event which is held annually to raise awareness and funds for CANSA.
Goldfields Casino’s Marketing Manager, Sharika Betts calls on the community to come down to the event and show their support for CANSA.
“The CANSA Shavathon is one of South Africa’s most-supported and best-loved charity events. We are delighted to be part of the 2014 CANSA Shavathon and look forward to welcoming hordes of people to shave or spray their hair to show solidarity with people affected by cancer, and help generate funds,” she encourages.
This year, being the 11th year that the national CANSA Shavathon has been held, people will have the choice of shaving, spraying or stenciling their hair. Adults can shave, spray or stencil their head for a donation of R50 (or more) and children under 12 years old pay for R 25.
Participants can pay cash to CANSA Shavathon representatives at Goldfields Casino on the day or, to fast track the process, they can make an online donation in advance on www.shavathon.org.za. Those making online donations must remember to take their confirmation email with them when they visit the Shavathon stand at Goldfields Casino. Those who aren’t brave enough to do any of those can choose to pay a “bailout fee”. All funds raised through CANSA Shavathon events will go towards CANSA initiatives.
