Of late we’ve been doing quite a bit of relationship building with the heavyweights (and by no means are we referring to how these peeps look) over at Ogilvy Cape Town. The company has been consistently impressing us with their approach to the marketing and advertising of the brands it represents. This trend continues with a little project we thought was worth a mention on MyCityByNight.
Ogilvy Cape Town has been making strides with their corporate social responsibility project, Percy Bartley House, an all-boys home in Woodstock. Although we love the mooiness, it is very important to remember that there are a whole bunch of boys that need the support and resources (time, money, etc) of South Africans too.
Using art, it is hoped that the boys will be able to express themselves and grow their creativity in sponsored art classes. The efforts of these kids will serve as the inspiration for the next phase of the project ghat involves a full rebuild of the burnt down section of the home. So what that basically means is more rooms for new boys to join the home as well as an entertainment area. There will be a number bare walls, which will be the canvas for the guys to create inspirational art of their own in the place they call home- Percy Bartley House.
As a fundraising project Ogilvy Cape Town is screening The Bang Bang Club, Cape Town premiere, at The Labia theatre on
19 July at 8:30pm. The response was so epic that another time had to be added to involve everyone that wanted to be there.
“Due to the high demand in tickets, and your fantastic support, the 8h30 pm show on Tuesday 19th July has been sold out – however we will now be screening a 6h15 pm show on the same evening (19 July). There will be snacks served in between the two shows.”
