BROOKDALE- GETWINE FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE IN AID OF ‘PROJECT FLAMINGO’
Brookdale and Getwine have launched a fundraising initiative in aid of Project Flamingo, which will run throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During October 2022, Brookdale Estate and Getwine will pledge a R10 donation to Project Flamingo for every bottle of Brookdale Mason Road wines sold to the public via the Getwine online platform.
Project Flamingo is a not-for-profit organisation that sets out to provide timely and holistic treatment, including life-saving Catch-Up surgery, for breast cancer patients who are dependent on public health.
THE BENEFICIARY: PROJECT FLAMINGO
Project Flamingo changes the lives of cancer patients dependent on the public health care system where massive delays in treatment are often a harsh reality. Every donated Rand makes a difference, and every cent goes to more timely and holistic cancer care. Project Flamingo volunteers, which include surgeons and anaesthetists, make their services and expertise available over weekends/afterhours at Groote Schuur and Tygerberg hospitals in Cape Town, as well as Livingstone hospital in Gqeberha and Cecilia Makiwane Hospital in East London, to patients in need of life-saving breast cancer surgery.
The hard cost of each surgery is approximately R6000 in nursing and consumable fees.
Driven by a group of passionate volunteers, Project Flamingo initiatives do not only include these life-saving Catch-Up surgeries, but also caring pamper packs to newly diagnosed cancer patients…
These include food parcels to chemo patients in need, student education, cancer advocacy work and support to the diagnostic breast clinics at the various hospitals where they are active.

ABOUT THE MASON ROAD WINES

Each of the three young wines in the current Mason Road range (2021 vintage) achieved a Tim Atkin score at 90 or more, but it was the Mason Road Syrah that led the pack with 92/100, followed by Mason Road Chenin Blanc and Mason Road Serendipity Rosé, both scoring 90.
