About Cape Leopard Trust:
The Cape Leopard Trust (CLT) is an active predator conservation-working group who use research as a tool for conservation, finding solutions to human-wildlife conflict and inspiring interest in the environment through an interactive and dynamic environmental education programme. Since its inception in 2004, the CLT has become an authority on predator conservation in the Cape, and one of the leading authorities in SA.
After hosting a successful 10th anniversary fundraising luncheon for the active predator conservation group, The Cape Leopard Trust, in 2014, Leopard’s Leap is delighted to announce that this year’s date has been released. The annual event will take place on 15 August 2015 in the picturesque Franschhoek.
This year again promises to be a fun-filled luncheon with wonderful entertainment, delicious food by in-house chef Pieter de Jager, Christo Pretorius of 12 Apostles Hotel & Spa, Michelle Theron of Pierneef a La Motte and Floris Smith from Bushmanskloof – all paired with Leopard’s Leap wines. An auction brimming with exclusive experiences and inspiring art will of course be another highlight of the day.
The first auction item to be announced is quite fitting being a leopard maquette sculpted by famed South-African artist, Dylan Lewis. The limited edition bronze maquette (1 of 15) “Alerted Leopard II Maquette”, stands 645mm tall and weighing 31kgs and is valued at R285 000.
Being a proud sponsor of the Cape Leopard Trust since its inception, Leopard’s Leap is joined on the day by recurring sponsors Fusion Global and FNB, and Opulent Living Experiences as the event organisers.
“We are so excited to repeat and build on last year’s celebration,” says Helen Turnbull, Acting CEO of the Cape Leopard Trust. “We are thrilled that last year’s event raised over R630 000 for the Trust, empowering us to achieve even greater conservation goals. We are hopeful that in 2015, especially with artists like Dylan Lewis and the confirmed sponsors already on board, we will see even more awareness and support raised for this worthy and dynamic organisation.”
Thanks to the continuous support of Leopard’s Leap, FNB and Fusion Global 100% of the proceeds raised, through the auction and ticket sales, will be donated to The Cape Leopard Trust. Tickets are now on sale at R1 500 per person.
