(Jason Hartmann)

Enjoy a night out with pop idol Jason Hartmann and do your thing to save Africa’s elephants and rhinos – all in one go – on December 5.

Jason Hartmann has had a packed itinerary since winning Idols, but since he is also passionate about conservation, he promises to give the Durban audience a rocking show.

He recently flew to Hollywood to attend the Hollywood Black Film Festival where he and Wandile Molabatsi attended the opening night, walking the red carpet as the lead actors in A Million Colours. A South African/Canadian production, the movie was chosen to open the festival and was the first time a foreign film had been chosen for this prestigious occasion. The movie is due for release in South Africa next year.

Jason then flew to Monaco to raise funds for Conservation Guardians – these funds will be used to assist conservation in South Africa. The funds raised will be put towards the war against poaching, especially rhinos, as well as self sufficiency programmes, such as sustainable food growing in various regions in SA.

Jason recently released his new single, Say My Name, and is working on his second album to be released early next year.

The concert will take place on December 5 at the Italian Club, 82 Fairway, Durban North at 18h30 for 19h00. Guests are invited to bring picnic baskets and enjoy the full cash bar.

Tickets R200 with proceeds going to the Celebrate Life 2012 – a fundraising initiative by a group of ordinary women hoping to raise R1 million for the Tusk Foundation by tackling the gruelling 21km Lewa Marathon in the Kenyan bush in June next year.

There are a limited number of tickets available – contact Cherry on 082 440 1730.
