If you didn’t attend the CRCH Women’s Day High Tea you sorely missed out! From unveiling our inner Queen to being treated with sweet treats fit for royalty, it was an event that left each women feeling motivated, confident and unstoppable! We honoured the women who attended, as well as those who give of their time day after day by providing unconditional love and care to the children at the home by celebrating their years of service. 20 years plus and still doing God’s work is truly amazing.
The guests enjoyed the inspirational talk by the vibrant Candice Booysen, a motivational speaker and an inspiration to the youth and women in general. Candice had us at the edge of our seats – she reignited the flame in us to re-adjust our crowns and take on the challenges that we are facing for the year ahead. We have to, as women in this world, inspire each other, support each other and appreciate each other, give each other the platform to shine and proudly show off our crowns – help a sister in need by helping her to shift her crown if she fails to be proud of herself. But we are so busy taking care of everyone else often, that we forget to take care of ourselves, hence I urge you to attend next year’s CRCH Women’s Day… You won’t be sorry! And if the above didn’t entice you the goodie bags will!

“ Very happy to hear that the session inspired the ladies and that the ladies enjoyed the talk. Im overjoyed to be considered a friend of the children’s home and hope to visit again.”

Thank you for creating a platform for women to be heard and to share their talents and stories. God will bless you abundantly. Kind regards and much Love- Claudine Cornelius
It was a wonderful, enriching; inspiring and motivational experience. – Elsabe Rudolph
Being invited to the CRC Home women’s day celebration is a privilege and always a pleasure to attend. Each time it’s a different experience and it gets better and better. This year was the most amazing Women’s Day Celebration @ the Cullinan Hotel, the atmosphere was awesome from the M.C to the speaker, singers and even the photographer has done their part with so much passion. There were laughter and tears ; there were so many “WOW” moments, the queen inside of us, rose and stood up to our full potential and a massive thank you to you and your team for organising the awesome Woman’s Day event, which my Mom and I had the privilege of attending. I believe no woman left the hotel the same again. For me , it was a day to remember- Well done to the staff of CRCH and everyone involved who made this day so special – Thank you. God Bless.

The high tea at the Cullinan Hotel with the “The Queen in Me” theme, was well organised and made every lady who attended feel like a Queen. Your guest artists and guest speaker carried the uplifting and inspiring theme throughout the afternoon, and the enthusiastic MC added such a fun element to the activities.
We felt very spoilt with the substantial and exciting goody bags which each lady received, and the spot prizes really made for some great entertainment moments!
Thank you once again for the lovely afternoon – I trust that you and all your dedicated staff also felt as special as the other guests! With much appreciation –Sonja van der Sandt
Women’s Day Celebrations with CRCH is an event not to be missed! The welcoming smiles from the beautifully dressed hostesses hardly hides their excitement. As usual, the catering was top class but the entertainment cannot be beaten. Such inspiration. And who can forget the fantastic prizes and goodie bags? Thank you CRCH for a beautiful afternoon shared with beautiful people. God bless you abundantly. – Bonita Hendricks
