3rd Annual Women Of Wonder Awards a sold out event

Panache’s 3rd Annual Women of Wonder Awards was nothing short of spectacular.
The evening saw true architects of society being given awards. The glitzy and glamorous gala dinner and Awards Evening was sold out – 164 people had to be turned away.

Panache hosted 57 Women of Wonder awardees, in recognition of their sterling work in society. A  decadent seven-course dinner, as well as a grand entertainment line-up which saw Shakey Russel belt out great Elvis hits and the MC, ensured an event of perfection.

Dances, in-between the Awards Ceremony, were performed by internationally renowned Oriental Fire which brought out unique props much to the delight of patrons present and some great Bollywood hits were rendered by Abdul Rahim Rasool.

A unique innovative concept that was presented at the Awards ceremony was a
self defence karate demonstration for women, performed by the Sei Sho Shin Karate Dojo.

Many ladies left the event feeling more empowered and inspired than ever before after CEO of Panache, Farzana Mayet, addressed them, She received a standing ovation from the audience for being the initiator of the Women of Wonder Awards which gave recognition to not only CEOs and MDs, but also to ordinary women who made an impact in society.

Trade Route Mall’s, Yaseen Valli, conceded that this Awards event is a powerful concept. She said it was an honour to  be associated with this brand.
“Women are taking great strides and are going out of their way to achieve their dreams and goals. The “Women of Wonder Awards” is a wonderful way of appreciating their hard work, determination and dedication and Trade Route Mall salute these women,” she said.

The event, in true Panache style, was extravagant. Guests and families present were all in praise  of the line-up of guests which included Zoleka Mandela (granddaughter of Tata Madiba), Catherine Constantinides (Change Agent SA), Sureshnie Rider (5fm presenter) and Interpol Ambassador, Andy Masahile.
The recipient of a part of the proceeds was Project Distinction, which was given R10 000. The founder, Waseem Sirkhot, thanked Panache and applauded Panache’s gesture of allowing pledges for Project Distinction to be made at the Women of Wonder Awards. There were gifts given to the lucky pledge winners thanks to Africology and Emperors Palace. Panache heads to Durban on August 27, 2017, where the Women of Wonder Awards will be held with equal splendour
