Tafel Lager Braai Competition launched
Namibia breweries launched the annual Tafel Lager Braai Competition last week. Pictured at the launch F.L.T.R were: Co-sponsor, Pick n Pay (PnP) Namibia’s Marketing Manager, Victoria Moller; Nico Jacobs (event organizer); Jacques van Coller from Radio Kosmos (media partner), and Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) Brand Manager: Mainstream, Samanthé Heyns.
The event which will be in its second year, will be held on 8 April at the United Sports ground in Olympia. The theme for this year’s braai is ‘Leg of lamb’.
NBL Sponsorship Supervisor: Sponsorship & Events, Nico Gericke is confident that this year’s event will be even bigger and better.
“The Tafel Lager Braai Competition is a fun-filled family event that most Namibians can relate to. What makes it more special is the fact that it gives participants – in this case, the winning team – the opportunity to plough back into the community by enriching the lives of a selected charity organization of their choice with their winnings,” he said.
The winning team this year will walk away with a cash prize of N$12500 that will be donated to a charity of their choice. Brand Manager: Mainstream, Samanthé Heyns said, “The day will see Andries Vermeulen (Oppi Stoep) as entertainer and Master of Ceremonies (MC) at the event, as well as a special guest whom we keep as a surprise for now. There will also be a live rugby match and a kiddie’s area, as well as local performers to keep our braaiers and the audience entertained.”
PnP Namibia Retail Marketing Manager, Gilbert Botha said the partnership between NBL and PnP speaks volumes in terms of effective collaboration.
Botha said,“This collaborative partnership between NBL and PnP is testament to the group purpose of ‘Creating a future, enhancing life’, as at the end of this event a charity organization will be strengthened financially which in turn will see the lives of those less privileged uplifted. As media partner, the support from Radio Kosmos 94.1 FM goes a long way in contribution to the success of this event. We are truly grateful”.
