GEORGE (October 2013) – On 11 November 2013 the Hyatt Regency Oubaai Golf Resort and Spa will be celebrating life in the best way possible. The ‘Celebrate Life’ fun walk will be hosted by the Hyatt Regency Oubaai aimed at raising funds for two charitable causes…another first of its kind added to the list of firsts already rolled out by this five star resort. The funds raised by this walk will be allocated to the Carpe Diem School and to the Garrett Ehrman Support Group.
Garrett Ehrman arrived home on Sunday, 5th October and will continue his recovery from a disastrous car accident in September. Garrett sustained serious head and chest injuries and his recovery will be a long and costly process. He has no medical aid and the Hyatt Regency Oubaai subsequently decided to allocate some of the funds raised by the fun walk to help with Garrett’s vast medical expenses.
The Hyatt Regency Oubaai also recently announced that it has taken on the Carpe Diem School as its official social responsibility project for 2014. This school for children with special needs only receives a minimal subsidy per learner from the government and therefore it has to lean heavily on donations and fundraising events. The fact that the Hyatt Regency Oubaai will be supporting Carpe Diem over the next year was received with great excitement by the passionate headmaster, Karools Hauptfleisch. Part of the funds raised by the ‘Celebrate Life’ fun walk will be allocated to the school and will most definitely be used where most needed.
Although this is only the first ‘Celebrate Life’ fun walk, the Hyatt Regency Oubaai already expects in excess of 300 participants. This event will take place at the Hyatt Regency Oubaai with its stunning natural landscape and the setting alone will without a doubt surpass the expectancy of everybody taking part. The festive atmosphere will be amplified by the smell of boerewors grilling on open fire, a beer tent and live entertainment of note!
By starting with this great initiative the Hyatt Regency Oubaai hopes to invest in the lives of those in need. The first two charitable causes were identified and in future many more in need will be helped. Margaret Mead said “Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have”. Join in on the fun and festivities and help the Hyatt Regency Oubaai to make a difference. Celebrate Life!
