Dance Direction International will present a great benefit show called Showbriety. The aim is to bring awareness to the serious effects that drunk driving can have on people’s lives.

“So many lives are being lost daily to drunken driving,” says Des van der Spuy of Dance Direction, “We all really need to make an impression and say that it’s not acceptable. Please support this Benefit Concert to make a difference!

Showbriety offers a light-hearted evening, filled with great entertainment, good company, lots of laughs and the best part is that it’s all for a great cause,” she continues. “Three special lives were lost earlier this year, and this evening pays tribute to Gillian, Connor and Carmen, while also reminding us of the tragic repercussions of drunken driving.”

Well-known faces from the entertainment scene in Durban will appear in the line-up including Lisa Bobbert, Marion Loudon and Lauren Laing, dancers from Dance Direction and many more established and up and coming performers in Durban, all giving their time and talent for charity.

Patrons can bring their own picnic basket so they can enjoy supper while they watch the show but that no alcohol will be allowed into the venue or onto the premises.

Showbriety takes place on June 25 at 18h00 for 18h30 at Glenwood Boys High. Tickets R120 available from Computicket. Soft drinks and non-alcoholic cocktails will be available for purchase. There’ll be mini auctions, raffles, entertainment and delicious desserts. The beneficiaries of this concert are: SADD and Connor Sports Trust. More details on and
