Bidding for penguins

SANCCOB Eastern Cape Benefit Auction

SANCCOB (the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds) is hosting its annual benefit auction on 22 October 2016 at the St Francis Links to raise funds for its seabird centre in Cape St Francis (Eastern Cape). SANCCOB’s centre in Cape St. Francis offers a 24-hour, 365-day rescue service for seabirds and admits approximately 300-400 seabirds for rehabilitation every year. Recently, the importance of SANCCOB’s work was highlighted when 92 oiled African penguins and 51 chicks were admitted to
the centre following an oil spill in Algoa Bay.

Since 2013, the annual SANCCOB Eastern Cape Benefit Auction has been a vital fundraising event in aid of SANCCOB’s year-round seabird conservation work. It is a premiere calendar event for supporters – including celebrities and special guests – who get a chance to bid on prized items and unique getaway experiences.

SANCCOB proudly welcomes the dazzling Shenay O’Brien, of Idols South Africa fame, as the special MC for the evening.SANCCOB
