Emerald makes a dream come true!

 

 

It certainly is going to be a fairy-tale wedding for local Vaal residents Maryke Fouche and Morne Bekker after winning a dream-come-true wedding to the value of R55 000 at Emerald Resort & Casino’s Wedding Open Day.

The engaged couple recently attended Emerald Resort & Casino’s Open Wedding Day which showcased the spectacular Resort as an ideal wedding venue for dreamy ceremonies and receptions.

“It is so amazing to see the expression on people’s faces when they win something unexpectedly and that they considered out of their reach,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. “We just love making those dreams come true.”

According to the winner, Maryke Fouche, they have been dating for more than eight years when, now fiancée, Morne took the initiative to pop the big question and get engaged. “To start planning our future, we took the plunge to move into a bigger place, obviously at the cost of having the dream wedding I’ve wanted since I was a little girl. We could only imagine about that perfect wedding until Emerald Resort & Casino made it possible after we won the competition.

Morne and I would like to thank Emerald Resort & Casino for an amazing day and we really look forward to taking advantage of all the facilities here when we get married in March or April next year.”

The happy couple won an entire wedding package prize that includes welcome drinks, canapés, plated starter and a buffet main course and dessert, venue hire for the ceremony and reception, PA system, dance floor with stage and a luxurious stay at the Honeymoon Bush Lodge haven.

“Wedding days are truly one of those days that are never forgotten,” concludes Tanuja. “From each and every one of the team members here at Emerald Resort & Casino we wish all the couples and guests that joined us on our Open Wedding Day luck and happiness as they plan for this big step.”

Congratulations to Emerald’s Readathon winners!

Want to know one habit that ultra-successful people have in common? They read. A lot! With this in mind, Emerald Resort & Casino recently hosted an annual school Readathon to give back to the community.

“To assist schools and encourage reading in the local Sedibeng area, the Readathon challenge is aimed at schools from the Vaal District West and East who are selected to participate in the competition,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino.

During the month of May, schools were selected to participate in the Readathon according to categories: Foundation phase: Grade 1-3, Intermediate phase: Grade 4-6, Senior phase: Grade 7-9 and FET Phase: Grade 10-12. The top four schools were selected from each phase, with the winners each claiming R10 000 for their school to go towards refurbishment or the purchase of school equipment.

Congratulations to the following winners – in the Foundation Phase: Roshnee Primary School

Intermediate: Batloung Primary School, Senior Phase: Dr Molefi Oliphant Secondary School and FET Phase: Mohlodi Secondary.

“We were privileged to hear motivational speaker, Dr Eva Seoke, born and bred in the Vaal and matriculated from Riverside High School, speak to us and the kids on the day,” said Tanuja. Eva achieved her Bachelors of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Witwatersrand and is currently working in the department of General Surgery at Sebokeng Hospital.

“The underlying theme is that if people want to be educated, successful and have a brighter future, their reading skills need to be learnt early in life,” comments Tanuja.

“Many of our local schools require financial assistance and we will have discussions with the principals of the winning schools to determine their most pressing needs and assist with these,” concludes Tanuja. “We enthusiastically support our local community and look forward to creating a brighter and more successful future for the kids and long-term assistance for these institutions that teach the future of our country.”
