Special Invitation to a Special Concert in a Special Location!

Posted by: Dissol


Press Release


Cape Town Stadium is proud to host Filia School’s Laduma concert in celebration of the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup®.


Filia School is a special needs educational facility from Goodwood.  This is the third, and final, annual concert that they have been staging in the build up to  the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup®, due to start on 11th June.


The concert performed by the children at the school celebrates the cultural diversity of our world.  It is fitting that this final event should be held in the newly completed, accessible, Cape Town Stadium.  It will be the last event before the stadium will be handed over to FIFA for the event in June.  We hope to join with the children in welcoming the overseas visitors to South Africa, and to celebrate the new, world class facility we have here in Cape Town.


We would like to invite you, your colleagues, and your children to this special event.


Date:  Wednesday, 12 May 2010

Time: 10h00 – 12h00

Venue: Cape Town Stadium


Please note this is a free event, although we will be asking for donations for future events for the school.


We are hoping that we shall be joined by the local & international media, local dignitaries, family & friends.  Please join us for the very special event.  Should you require any further information, please PM me, or contact the school directly on 021 592 1361/2/3, fax 021 592 1369.

I am hoping to get lots of media there (any contacts that anyone may have???), and have sent press releases to TV, newspapers, radio, etc.

The performers are the learners at Filia School. So we shall have 200 children, some of whom have quite severe disabilities performing in their concert - called "Laduma". We are also hoping to have some celebs there too, but the children will be the stars.

But never mind watching it on TV; take a sickie, get on a plane, & come and join in!!! It is going to be great!!

Just hoping that the sun will be shining too!!!
