Franschhoek Wine Valley

Valley Flair Art Auction at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards

Make A Difference Leadership Foundation (MAD Leadership Foundation) aims to provide talented scholars with exceptional educational and leadership development opportunities, to inspire a brighter future for South Africa. Since inception, MAD Leadership Foundation has showcased and featured both upcoming and well-known South African artists at our national and international auctions at our golf events. Art has consistently been at the heart of most of our auctions, allowing MAD Leadership Foundation the opportunity to showcase creative talent, as well as raise funds through must-have art pieces and sculptures. In 2016 we launched our first art-only fundraising evening, a true showcase of the South African art scene and a must-attend event for art enthusiasts with a passion to Make A Difference.

We are proud to host our second Valley Flair Art Auction, in partnership with Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards & Lizamore & Associates Gallery, on Saturday the 25th of March 2017. Guests are invited to spend the evening enjoying art, music, drinks and canapés, set to the backdrop of the beautiful landscape of Franschhoek Valley. Valley Flair 2017 brings you access to the creative heart of South African artistry presenting well-known and up and coming South African artists such as: Mbongeni Buthelezi, Guy du Toit, Keith Calder, Janko de Beer and Jaco Sieberhagen.
