A few of the ladies who make a difference with Winter Warmer.

Started last year, Winter Warmer is an initiative meant to counter this cold weather by making winter a little warmer for a lot of people who can’t do that for themselves. Cuebur Music and Arts Inn Me rely on social media platforms to collect blankets, clothes and food which they distribute among their beneficiaries.

With more beneficiaries this year including schools in Tembisa, Winter Warmer had to get creative in order to make this year’s drive bigger, better and of course, warmer. Winter Warmer brings Johannesburg what Johannesburg loves to do. Yes, you guessed right; PARTY!!! And besides great music and beautiful people, what makes a great party? Say it with me: THE VENUE.

On Friday 31 May 2013, Winter Warmer will turn on the heat at BAR9 in Midrand. BAR9 shows its support for Winter Warmer by opening its doors to Jozi party animals for a good cause.

If you leave a blanket, clothes or canned food at the door, then you only pay R30 to get in and dance until your feet can take no more. If you decide to come through empty-handed, then the doorman will expect no less than R60 from you.

It all boils down to keeping someone warm with Winter Warmer.

It would be a good idea to follow the initiative on Facebook and Twitter for event updates, progress about collections and how to make donations.
