A media release on the project says it has caught the attention of people all over the world “who have ever had a connection with Arcadia and in over 100 years, that includes innumerable families over several generations”. 

While the building costs have been taken care of “by an incredibly generous donor”, the Chevrah Kadisha is responsible for interior decorating, furnishings, fittings and finishes. This has sparked numerous fundraising efforts across the world and especially here in South Africa.

One of these fundraisers was the fifth annual Walty Brothers Fun Sports Day which raised over R150 000 for the new Arcadia. 

The event was organised by parents Ivan and Belinda Walt in loving memory of their sons Dean (13) and Dylan (19), both of whom passed away tragically - Dean in a car accident five years ago and Dylan, who took his life 18 months ago at age 19. 

The event, held on Sunday July 31 at the Sandton Indoor Arena, was a tribute to the memory of the sports-loving Walt brothers, attracting over 500 people - 288 participating children, hundreds of parents and family members, 22 cricket teams and 16 netball teams.
