Jade&Velvet invites you to their annual get together to raise funds for the FASt Forward Fund – a charity initiative that provides support for children who suffer from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS).
This year`s theme for this special event is “A little goes a long way.” Attendees can look forward to a fun-filled morning of entertaining and informative talks, as well as a delicious tapas brunch. Well known actress Helene Truter will be the MC and the guest speaker at the function will be Elsabe Aldrich. www.elsabealdrich.com. Guests can also look forward to viewing the latest Jade & Velvet outfits in a special fashion parade and the super talented Gerald Clark will be performing at the event.
Jade & Velvet owners Susan Louw and Magda Malan was the 2016 South African winners of the International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge in the “Mentorship” category. They were subsequently invited to attend the IWEC conference in Brussels in October 2016 and they also currently have the benefit of receiving mentorship from three of the previous winners in this category. Susan and Magda`s success is an inspiration to many. They enjoy giving back and this event initiative has been close to their hearts for the past three years.
The FASt Forward Fund differs from other funds like the Beyers Truter Fetal Alcohol-Syndrome and interrelated Treatment Help Fund (FAITH). While the FAITH Fund concentrates on educating expectant mothers on the dangers of using alcohol during pregnancy, FASt-Forward focuses on providing equestrian therapy for youngsters suffering from the effects of the illness.
Horse riding has been proven to be an excellent form of therapy for individuals with special needs. It improves balance, posture, muscle tone and joint flexibility, as well as developing attention span, reasoning, memory and other cognitive functions. By working with programmes like Equitots, the FASt Forward Fund gives FAS- sufferers access to this excellent form of therapy.
