Coined as a premiere event during the 2010 World Cup, the dinner is a result of a partnership between the Foundation, World Fashion Month, Anglo Platinum and African Fashion International.
The Legacy Gala Dinner will showcase unique fashion and jewellery and feature great African entertainment. Guests are asked to buy seats or tables to the event and to participate in an auction of exclusive items.
Appropriately themed reflections, this event will showcase the different facets of the legacy of Nelson Mandela as reflected through the eyes of clothing and jewellery designers.
The aim of the dinner is to raise much needed funding for the sustainability fund of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, supporting its core work and the humanitarian legacy of Nelson Mandela.
Major celebrities and dignitaries have been confirmed to attend the event.
The event takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg on July 4. More information can be found here.
