Sun City Honours Rugby Legendson February 14, 2011
The Blood Brothers Testimonial™ was an incredible fundraising event at our resort that was a testament to rugby legends: Bakkies Botha and Victor Matfield. These long-standing local heroes have certainly stood their ground in the world of rugby, and this event honoured them and their careers. The testimonial stood to create an opportunity to reward both players for their service in South African sport, at the same time as raise funds for deserving charities.
What Did The Testimonial Involve?
The praiseworthy charities – Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Centre and the Children’s Hospital Trust – were the primary driving force behind The Blood Brothers Testimonial™. Both charities were designated by the individual rugby stars as the organisations they felt were most deserving of support. We couldn’t agree more!
The testimonial hosted various functions across the country, with four prime events being the Golf Days here at Sun City. Our impressive Gary Player designed golf courses were the ideal landscape for the golfing days, and offered an open space for rugby fans to become more familiar with their heroes. The testimonial also provided a platform for Victor Matfield and Bakkies Botha to give something back to their fans. The undying support that these players have received from South African rugby fans over the years has been overwhelming, and here they had the occasion to say thank you in their own special ways.
