Forever Young ball all for a good cause

Johannesburg- Enhle Cares foundation, founded over four months ago, is an advocate for youth and women empowerment.

The Forever Young Ball and Gala dinner will take place on Friday a lead up to the Global Citizen event extravaganza to take place on Sunday, as some attendees will include Motsepes, Black Coffee and Pearl Thusi.

The foundation, Enhles Cares, founded by Enhle Mbali Maphumulo, has partnered up with the House of Mandela to raise funds for charity.

“You know, for me it’s crazy that the Mandelas allowed someone like me to come [and] work with them alongside Global Citizen.

“When you walk into a meeting with someone of such calibre, you think twice,” said Enhle.

Guests will have to pay a minimum of R200000 for any of the items they bid on during the auction, there will also be “a couple of original Mandela pieces.

They will be a showcase of  SA artist Nelson Makamo, whose work will be up for auction.

“Nigerian artist Laolu Senbanjo and LA-based graffiti artist Retna will be offering us something ” Enhle said.

“We asked people we really rate highly and they gave us their stuff,” she said.

The event hopes to raise additional funds with the release of an EP featuring a host of artists, including the late HHP.

“His song is absolutely amazing, he put his all into that song. We were all so shocked to hear of his passing because we had him here in the studio just days before,” said Enhle

The song will be released on iTunes and all the money raised will go towards the foundation.

“The name of the gala dinner is something I often post and we all decided to call it Forever Young because it resonates with what Tata thought the youth could do or the power young people have to change any climate in the world,” she said.
