Say cheers for charity
Wines go under the hammer for worthy causes
CHARITY is a big part of Western Cape Auctioneers’ portfolio and the company supports various institutions by auctioning off wine, sports memorabilia and even teddy bears for charity. The skill and experience of their auctioneers is used not just for business but also for worth causes where money and support is needed.
Last week the auctioneers of WCA showed their skill at a private school in Cape Town selling 50 bottles of donated wines from various well-known wine estates, with some of the vintage bottles fetching over R1 500.
Although the evening is conducted on a much lighter note than normal business auctions, auctioneer Stef Olivier enjoys the atmosphere of charity auctions.
He also supports the Tygerbear f o undati o n eve r y ye a r with the annual function where celebrities such as Idol contestants and local hottie Minki van der Westhuizen, to mention a few, demonstrate their support.
Olivier believes “it’s important to give back to those in need, if not by financing them, by service”.
Successfully falling under the WCA hammer last week at
the regular catering auction in Brackenfell were the contents of a sushi bar that never had the chance to open before it was closed down by Western Cape Auctioneers.
All the equipment was new and competitive prices were achieved on the auction floor.
The weekly auctions continue to draw crowds and more new clientele are approaching them every week.
This week the contents of a restaurant will be on auction on Thursday at 11am in Brackenfell.
