The Bokamoso Trust will be hosting a fund-raiser on 20 July at Katy’s Palace Bar in celebration of its 10-year anniversary. Among the many good reasons to be there (one of which is raising money for an excellent cause) is the chance to score a share in a racehorse!

“The Onamission Syndicate, to which many in the CN&CO team belong, aims to make race horse ownership more affordable and accessible in South Africa,” explains CN&CO’s Carel Nolte. “It’s a similar concept to our partner EasyEquities’ approach to democratising the stock exchange, which is one of the reasons why we enjoy it so much.”

CN&CO and EasyEquities have secured two shares in the latest horse in the Onamission stable, Arminius, which will be up for auction on the night.

“We have all had a great deal of fun through our Onamission race horse ownership,” says Carel. “It comes with all the perks of being an owner, but at a way more affordable price. Plus our horses are trained in the Mike de Kock stable, which is one of the top in the country – if not the world!”

Here are the details of Bokamoso Trust’s 10-year anniversary fundraiser:

  • Date and time: 20 July 2018, 7pm
  • Venue: Katy’s Palace Bar, 6 Desmond St, Kramerville, Sandton
  • Cost: R750 per person, which includes tapas and paella by Tutto, followed by churros
  • Theme: A Night at the Races

A cash bar (including a gin bar) will be available. Entertainment will be headlined by South African superband, Watershed – although there will be plenty to do!

All funds raised will go towards the Bokamoso Trust. 


About Arminius

Arminius is a recent national yearling sale purchase. He is out of the stakes-winning mare Rainbow Flag. She was a five-time winning mare, including victory in the Scarlet Lady Handicap and second place in the group one Garden Province. She was also placed in the Golden Bracelet (GR2), Yellow Wood (GR 3) and Jacaranda Handicap. She has produced winners that include the top division stakes winner Kangaroo Jack. Arminius is by our home-bred international hero Vercingetorix. This is his first crop of horses and we are really excited about them.

About Bokamoso Trust

“I’d love to do something to help, but I just don’t know what.” If you’re one of those South Africans who feel so overwhelmed by the amount of people who need help in our country that you’re paralysed into doing nothing at all, consider this…

For a mere R180 per month, you could contribute to a child’s education and development.

Bokamoso Trust is an organisation that aims to help as many kids as possible to get an education and a good grounding to serve them into adulthood. Through a crowdfunding-type model, together with the chance to form relationships between donors and the kids themselves, Bokamoso aims to produce responsible citizens who can positively contribute to the development of South Africa.

The trust was started 10 years ago by Doug Laburn of Lombard Partnerships and a group of varsity mates. Today it supports more than 80 kids with financial aid and mentorship.
