Nelson Mandela, a freedom fighter and icon, would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be remembered for his fight for the freedom of South Africa.
His work and life were impactful not just in South Africa but around the World, so it comes as no surprise that Liverpool City plans to honour Nelson Mandela by placing a permanent memorial to the leader. The memorial artwork which will be created on the lake island of Toxteth Park and launched in June 2018, it will be known as Mandela Island and the bridge linking the island with the park will be called Freedom Bridge.
To mark this prestigious occasion, Avatriou Events will bring the #Liverpool4Madiba Experience with former Liverpool Football Club players, Robbie Fowler, John Barnes & Steve Mcmanaman who will be hosting a dinner in Johannesburg, South Africa with part of the proceeds from the dinner going towards several charitable causes, including ‘The House Group’ in support of young girls who are survivors of human trafficking. The visit with these former players will encompass a 3-day tour in South Africa which includes a press conference, a spectacular gala dinner with fans and a coaching clinic with 250 underprivileged children to be hosted at the Metrostars Football Development Centre in Benoni, Johannesburg.
As a city Liverpool highly applauds and endorses Nelson Mandela’s fight for equal freedom for all and the Liverpool legends are keen to lend their support to this worthwhile initiative hence this campaign is perfectly themed the #Liverpool4Madiba Experience #Freedom4All
There is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet these Liverpool legends, with limited tickets on sale and going fast. Tickets are R2500 per ticket and include drinks & 5 course dinner. The gala dinner will take place on Wednesday 21st March 2018 at the prestigious Hilton Hotel, Sandton, Johannesburg and is sponsored by the delicious energy drink ‘Favor Energy Drink’, who are honouring Nelson Mandela’s service to South Africa.
