PRESS RELEASE: Shimmy Beach Club to host The Global Party

Cape Town’s shiny new venue, Shimmy Beach Club, has been chosen as one of the 360 hottest spots in over 120 cities that will host The Global Party 2013 (TGP) at the end of June.  Conceived as a charity fundraiser, TGP will host 360,000 of the world’s VIP’s, celebrities, jetsetters and high-rollers at glamorous events that link luxury with philanthropy.   The announcement was made at a press conference in London on Wednesday night.

Shimmy Beach Club will be hosting Cape Town’s official invitation-only Global Party on Saturday 29 June 2013.   All TGP events will raise funds for children’s charities and Shimmy has nominated AIDS NGO Wola Nani with its Orphans and Vulnerable Children Programme (OVC) as the benefiting local charity.

‘We relish the opportunity to throw the most unforgettable party Cape Town has ever seen” says Shimmy Beach Club director, Shawn Mace.   “Since opening our doors at the end of last year, we have enjoyed the patronage of many of South Africa’s most fortunate people.   We believe that by hosting TGP, we can make a difference in many young and less fortunate lives.  We challenge everyone to open their hearts and their wallets as part of this worldwide initiative‘.

Shimmy joins an elite list of the world’s chicest nightspots including Nikki Beach in Marrakech, Paris’s Ozu Club and The Savoy, London.   

Observatory-based NGO Wola Nani, Xhosa for “we embrace and develop one another”, was established in 1994 as a non-profit organization to support women, orphans and vulnerable children infected by the HIV crisis.  

“Since the inception of the organization, Wola Nani has always recognized that children are the most vulnerable in the HIV/AIDS epidemic” says Executive Director Moira Jones.   “It is only through the support of donors, that Wola Nani can enhance its OVC programmes and embark on moving these young people from vulnerability to resilience".
