Guests can expect stellar performances from the likes of Khaya Mthethwa, 2012 SA Idols winner, LELO, former top 10 Idols contestant, popular tenor, Wayne Mkhize, Broadway, Superstar Kate Normington and singer, actress and TV personality Ilse Klink. 

Well-known entertainment and theatre personalities, Terrence Pillay and Caroline Smart, will be the evening's hosts.

These stars are just some of SA’s cream of the crop participating in the show. Suncoast Marketing Manager, Louise Howell, said: “We at Suncoast value the performers who have so generously given of their time and talent to help raise funds for CANSA. We look forward to hosting this glamorous night out in support of a very worthy cause.”

CANSA Regional Manager, Cara Noble said the organisation was honoured to have received continued support from sponsors, Suncoast, Night of 100 Stars producer Mark Hawkins, Musical Director Shem Mahabeer, Black Coffee, and Functions for Africa. “It’s not very common for people and organisations to be so giving of their time and services these days.
