Elalini Backpackers and all its residents were evacuated twice in the past few days as fires threatened the Buffels Bay region. Luckily, their property came off unscathed and now they want to give back to their neighbours who weren’t so lucky.
The generous team at Elalini Backpackers along with François Haasbroek have decided to scrap all entry fees for their Youth Day Celebrations on Friday 16 June.
If you are in the area and you need a night out, come to Elalini Backpackers to sing and dance the night away. Bring the children and your Djembe drum along, and join the drum circle at sunset to lift your spirits.
>Swing by for a few hours or stay the whole night, it’s completely free to come and go as you please. The festivities start at 15h00 and François Haasbroek will perform from 18h00 onwards.
François is a very talented artist from Cape Town. He has built quite a name for himself and has opened for Francois Van Coke, Koos Kombuis and Gerald Clark, to name a few. He has a repertoire of over 300 popular folk and acoustic rock covers.
Lee Vivaliano from Elalini Backpackers says: “We want to say a special thank you to our artist for the evening, François Haasbroek, for helping us make this event possible.”
“To those who have been affected, we would like to send our deepest, heartfelt sympathy,” says Lee. “This has not been an easy week, but the extent and amount of support have been absolutely amazing. THIS TOO SHALL PASS. Our community is strong and together we will all get through this.”
I want to go!
Bring your own blankets, alcoholic beverages, friends and family, laughter, dancing shoes (if you want to boogie), positive vibrations and love.
