The Mr. Gay South Africa™ bid committee are assured of making their presentation in Manila in March to host the 2012 Mr. Gay World, thanks to a new sponsor.
Mr. Gay South Africa (Pty) Ltd. said that it is proud to announce that Wilco van Eeden and Club Travel Honeydew will sponsor the travel and accommodation costs of the South African bid committee for Mr. Gay World 2012 as well as the current title holder, Francois Nel.
“We are very thankful to Club Travel Honeydew and the donors who have come to the table once again and supported this bid, which will have a huge impact on drawing the attention of the world to the plight of LGBTI people of Africa and give our brothers and sisters on the continent hope that they may one day achieve what we have achieved in South Africa,” said Coenie Kukkuk, Director of Operations of Mr. Gay South Africa.
Nel, Mr. Gay South Africa 2010, will represent South Africa in Manila, Philippines, from the 9th until the 13th March at Mr. Gay World 2011. The Grand Finale will happen at Club Mwah in Manila on Sunday 13 March where the host country of next year’s competition will also be announced.
The organisers of Mr. Gay South Africa will do a presentation and screen a video in support of South Africa as host of Mr. Gay World 2012, featuring Cathy Specific, the hostess of Mr. Gay South Africa Grand Finale 2009 and 2010, Charl van den Berg, the current Mr. Gay World, Nel and sponsors and organisers.
The organisers said that although most of the proposed events in 2012 will be centred in and around Gauteng, should South Africa receive the nod an after-event excursion to the Cape is also in the works.
Nel added that “…one of our activities in Manila will be an Outreach Programme at email@example.com.”
