RedCap Foundation ambassadors Gangs of Ballet are winning hearts all over the country with their inspiring lyrics and award winning performances and are riding their wave of success all the way to Mr Price Pro Ballito (June 30 to July 6)
The Durban band of four friends jumped on board as RedCap Foundation Ambassadors last year after they witnessed the good work that was being done in South Africa’s youth space. Just like the RedCap Foundation Gangs of Ballet hope to inspire tomorrow’s heroes, creating a generation of young South Africans that want to be part of the country’s solution.
Since 2009 the RedCap Foundation was chosen as the official Corporate Social Investment Project of the Mr Price Pro Ballito and is as an organization working in South Africa’s youth space.
RedCap Foundation Manager Marc Eslick explained that, “It is a real honour and privilege for the RedCap Foundation to have such a strong partnership with an award winning band such as Gangs of Ballet. The band fully understand the vision and the mission of the RedCap Foundation and to have their support for what the RedCap Foundation is doing in the education, health and job creation space for the youth in South Africa is truly invaluable.”
“We also know that the band love surfing and to see them perform live at the free Mr Price Pro Concerts in Ballito will be as much a treat for them as it will for the Foundation and their many fans,” added Eslick.
Gangs of Ballet are also delighted with this partnership saying, “We are proud to be associated with the RedCap Foundation and the incredible work they do inspiring a younger generation to do greater things. To give people hopes and dreams and the practical tools to achieve them is an amazing thing.”
Gangs of Ballet will be performing at the Live Beach Fest at the Mr Price Pro Ballito on July 04. The Mr Price Pro Ballito international surfing competition and beach and lifestyle festival offers families plenty of fun in the sun with activities like extreme sports, beach action, the surfing competition, free music concerts and retail delights.
