Clothes fly at 7de Laan charity auction

Oudtshoorn – Clothes disappeared and the money rolled in as the actors from 7de Laan got rid of their favourite outfits.

Festival goers at the ABSA KKNK stood in long queues at the ABSA wine hall on Monday to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars auctioning off their outfits for charity.

Producers of the popular soap decided to support the Afrikaans Christian Women Society's charity project, Clothes for Everyone (Klere vir Almal).

Singer Tobi Jooste who started the project also acts as its ambassador. He has stated that his goal is to sell 1 000 pieces of clothing for R1m. He travels from town to town, selling second hand clothing.

Highest bid

Melanie Du Bois who plays the role of Felicity Daniels on the show said that she is not at all sad to see the dresses go: "It's for charity."

Theodore Jantjies (Xander Meintjies) encouraged the audience to buy one of Paula's shirts to "add a little je ne sais quoi to your wardrobe".

Margie Fouché of De Aar made the highest bid on a dress worn by Amalia Uys who plays the role of San -Mari van Graan. Fouché bought the dress for her daughter who is a first year student at the Univeristy of the Free State.

The dresses were sold for prices starting at R300. More clothing was sold for between R10 and R80 during the break.

Altogether R31 000 was generated for the charity.
