Trellidor Head Office has been a long standing supporter of the Sunflower Fund fundraising initiatives, including the annual fund ball held in Durban each year. The ball raises money to pay for the tissue typing of stem cell donors for inclusion on the South African Bone Marrow Registry. The more donors there are on the registry, the more chance leukaemia sufferers have of finding their life-saving donor match.
The ball is a black tie and ball gown affair, giving guests a rare chance of dressing up for a very worthy occasion. The venue is professionally decorated to create a wonderful atmosphere in which to enjoy an excellent three course meal.
An audio visual presentation shown during the evening emphasises the mission of the Sunflower Fund and what it means to the recipients of donors bone marrow. These recipients are very often young children, so the message has incredible impact and encourages many to register as donors. To find out more visit the Sunflower Fund’s website.
The 2016 Sunflower Fund Ball
As they do every year, Trellidor Marketing and Trellidor Operations each paid for a table at the 2016 edition of the Sunflower Fund Ball. They invited staff members to join them for an excellent evening for a very worthy cause.
As sponsors, Trellidor participates in pre-publicity for the Sunflower Fund Ball, helping to build interest in the event.
