Percy Bartley House and The Bang Bang Club

Last week Tuesday Ogilvy Cape Town proudly premiered the Cape Town screening of the much talked about The Bang Bang Club movie in order to raise funds for the Woodstock boys home, Percy Bartley House.

Having initially set our sight on selling tickets to one showing, we were overwhelmed by support and requests for tickets that we excitedly set up a second screening which was virtually sold out too!  With snacks and drinks enjoyed by our guests between the two screenings, it was a very successful evening.

The proceeds of the night will be put towards our long-term project for the home: rebuilding the large section that was burnt down a few years ago.  In doing this we will be creating more rooms for new boys as well as an entertainment area.

This year we have also continued with our initial goal of inspiring the boys of the home through art. Last year we saw top street artists give the home a makeover and this year the boys have been attending their own art classes and have been learning to express themselves through art and colour.

Thank you to all those who supported and donated and to The Labia for making the evening possible, it really is so appreciated!
