High tea and inspiration for women this Women’s Day

Jes Foord will be inspiring women at Carnival City’s high tea event in celebration of Women’s Day on August 9.

Women take centre stage at an inspired high tea and motivational talk, at Carnival City, in celebration of Women’s Day this year.

Dynamic speaker and founder of the Jes Foord Foundation, Jes Foord, will talk about the power of women while guests indulge in a spread of sumptuous treats.

This 21-year-old woman survived being raped by four men and despite the horror of this ordeal, rose above it by creating something good from the bad which transpired in her life.

Jes shares her experience and in a moving but very inspirational talk, speaks of the JFF (Jes Foord Foundation) which has established counselling rooms for women in Kloof, at St Augustine Hospital, Hammersdale and Marrian Hill.

The purpose of the foundation is to empower rape survivors through education.

Jes is not the only inspiring woman to be joined at Carnival City’s Women’s Day event.

“5FM’s tenacious Nicole da Silva will be joining Jes, and we are thrilled to have these two impressive young women in our presence this Women’s Day,” said Michelle Smith, marketing manager for Carnival City.

At just 21, Nicole, who will MC the event, started on national radio.

Currently presenting her own weekend afternoon slot on 5FM she adds her quick wit, sassy personality and warmth to her shows and is ready to bring that warmth to the ladies at Carnival City on August 9.

Carnival City’s culinary team is set to serve decadent slices of cake, dainty tartlets, fresh muffins, scones with homemade preserves, savoury treats, and tantalising desserts.

Prizes from lucky draws can be won as well, as the fun unfolds.

The event takes place at Carnival City’s Rio Ballroom and starts at 10am.
