Night of fun for CPUT alumni

There’s less than a week to go before the exclusive year-end celebration of the Alumni Association is held at a trendy city hotel.

A highlight of the CPUT’s social calendar, the event will see KFM Breakfast Show sports anchor, Jeremy Harris, himself an alumnus of the CPUT, direct the evenings events.

Harris will be presiding over a sumptuous three-course dinner with his inimitable humour and joie de vivre, as musician John Frans and vocalist Natalie Denton entertain the guests. Another highlight of the evening will be a series of raffles in which bumper prizes, including a night at the Double Tree by Hilton Upper Eastside Hotel, original artworks, and dinner for two at the 5-star Table Bay Hotel, will be up for grabs.

Alumni Association Executive Chairperson, Jeff Daniels, will be in attendance, as will regional representatives of alumni chapters established in 6 regions of South and Southern Africa this year. “Amidst the fun and celebration,” says Daniels, “we’re coming together to mark what has been a momentous year in the history of our Alma Mater.

“2013 has seen the establishment of the CPUT’s first-ever official Alumni Association, with chapters in Free State, Northern Cape, Gauteng, Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Namibia. And after all the painstaking logistics and laying the foundations for the successful operation of the Association and the chapters, we’re now ready to move into gear to fulfill our mandates of giving back to the university using our professional resources, skills and goodwill.”

The evening will also be an opportunity for alumni to bid a fond farewell to outgoing Vice Chancellor, Prof Mazwi-Tanga, and meet Vice-Chancellor Designate, Dr Prins Nevhutalu, who takes up his new role in January 2014.
