Paddle For Penguins!
The 16th annual SANCCOB Benefit Auction is a vital fundraising event in aid of SANCCOB’s year-round seabird conservation work including the African penguin and other seabirds. The event takes place on Saturday 16 November from 17h30 at the prestigious Protea Hotel Fire & Ice by Marriott Cape Town, situated in Tamboerskloof. Book your spot or even better – a table and bring your friends to paddle for penguins at this benefit auction.
As a non-profit organization, SANCCOB’s annual benefit auction is a premiere calendar event for supporters, including celebrities and special guests, who have the opportunity to bid on a range of exciting items and unique getaway experiences.
Help raise funds for SANCCOB’s vital seabird rescue and rehabilitation work with endangered African penguins and other southern African seabirds. Join us for a wonderful evening of good company, bidding on terrific items and experiences – including exclusive wine tastings, a getaway at Aquila Safari Private Game Reserve and Spa, art, and a giant fluffy African penguin toy, among others. The auction will be facilitated by professional auctioneer, Andrew James, of Michael James Organisation.
If you are unable to make the SANCCOB Annual Benefit Auction this year, there are other ways you can help!
Help save this highly endangered species by ‘adopting’ a wild African penguin or penguin egg that will be rehabilitated and released back into the wild by our dedicated staff … or one of our ‘home pen’ birds that live permanently at our Table View and Port Elizabeth seabird centres, because for various reasons, they cannot be released back into the wild.
