2011-03-18: Musical Fountains to host Corporate Concert to combat Climate Change

The long-awaited official launch of the recently refurbished Pioneer Park Musical Fountains will take place on Sunday, 20 March 2011. The launch will coincide with Johannesburg City Parks hosting its first Corporate Concert to combat Climate Change (C4 Concert) – proceeds of which will go towards the “Tree Campaign” which aims to address the greening disparities within the City of Joburg.

Over 19 companies have committed to purchasing hospitality suites for the event, which will include the official switch-on of the Musical Fountain by the Executive Mayor of Johannesburg, Clr Amos Masondo; a laser show; live entertainment by acclaimed artists such as Selaelo Selota, Loyiso Bala, Bryce Anderson, Theo Kgosinkwe, the Soweto Gospel Choir and Denim and dance items by Volatile.
The event is hosted in partnership with the City of Johannesburg and KayaFM and various organisations and businesses.

The venue can accommodate over 50 dedicated VIP corporate areas and corporate guests. Ceremonial trees will be planted by the MEC of Sports in Gauteng, the Executive Mayor, the City Manager and various Members of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) in the City of Joburg.

The MMC for Environment, Clr Matshidiso Mfikoe urged companies to support the campaign by purchasing green suites for 20 or 50 of your VIP guests at R60K or R120K respectively, per hospitality package.

Included in the package will be the donation of a tree-per-guest to offset the partnering company´s carbon footprint “Green business makes good business cents! Joburgers work hard. We need to take the time to relax as well.

The C4 Concert allows companies to network and to party with a purpose by contributing to bettering the environment by donating trees to bridge-the-green-divide in Joburg,” she stated.

The C4 Concert will become part of an annual fundraising event on the City´s calendar.

Tickets to the event will be sold exclusively as corporate packages and includes full banqueting facilities and an environmental certificate acknowledging the contribution to combating climate change in Joburg.
