Enjoy the glitz and glamour - at home

  • Achievers 14 Live BlogHOME
The clock's counting down to Sunday's annual social highlight of the SA Jewish calendar, the Gala Awards Banquet of the Absa Jewish Achievers, brought to you by SA Jewish Report. This R3 000-a-plate fundraiser is, as usual, sold out, even though the new Vodaworld, venue accommodates more guests. But, users, fear not. SAJR Online will host its biggest-ever live-blog to keep you updated from 16:00, when guests begin arriving – through tlil late in the night. Read more...

We will be bringing you a constant stream of updates of information and photographs starting on the red carpet, through the social interactions, the entertainment, and the awards.

As each of the Humanities awards are announced and handed out, the live blog will publish information about the winners – and, later, interviews with them.

During the dinner and entertainment we will sketch the glitz and glamour, constantly adding pictures and interviews.

When it comes to the Business Awards, as the 40-or-so finalists in four categories are introduced to the celebrity audience, so will they be to SAJR users at home. As the winners are announced, you’ll read about it in the comfort of your own lounge.

We will report on the winners’ speeches and so we will follow the events – constantly ensuring our users are kept as up-to-date as the audience at Vodaworld.

Finally, once all is said and done, we will publish the spectacular glossy 72-page event magazine (which will also be inserted into all newspapers next week.)

Be able to say: 'I was there too!'

And, by the time your snobby friends call you on Monday to tell you how great it was, you’ll be able to say: “I was there too!”

See Wednesday’s newsletter for a more detailed running order of events so you can plan your Sunday around our live blog.
