Manny de Freitas Foundation hosts special luncheon in honour of Celia da Costa
The MdFF (Manny de Freitas Foundation) will be hosting a fundraising lunch in honour of Celia da Costa – celebrating her life and her birthday which would’ve taken place on the 25th June. Da Costa was a victim of a vicious crime who lost her life after being stopped and shot in her vehicle in an attempted robbery after leaving the Lusitoland Festival this year.
As June is her birthday month, MdFF Executive Director, Jeanette de Freitas decided that it would be fitting for a lunch to be held in honour of Celia da Costa. As she had a special concern for those suffering with Cancer and also for the elderly, proceeds from this lunch will go to the MdFF as well as the Lar de Nossa Senhora de Fatima Portuguese Old Age Home in Brentwood Park, Benoni.
The luncheon takes place on Sunday, 28 June 2015 at 12h30 at the Rodizio Brazilian Restaurant in Bedfordview. Tickets are R250,00 each and may be obtained from Jeanette de Freitas on 082 411-7928.
MdFF founder, Manny de Freitas will also be present.
