We’ve all discovered that maintaining full time day jobs, children and keeping on top of all the amazing Nosh4Noah goings-on is a wee bit more challenging than expected. Which is way better than the alternative, of course. And let’s be clear, we’re gob-smacked. At how much support we’ve received. And by how cool people have been.
But we’ve been remiss. There has been loads going on and so finally an update on what’s potting in the Nosh4Noah world. With some long overdue thanks to some pretty fab folk.
Firstly, the amazing team at Massimo’s Pizza Club in Hout Bay Cape Town raised some dosh for Noah by selling delicious chocolate liqueur at a bargain price, donating the difference to Noah’s fund. Not surprisingly, all four bottles were sold in a nanosecond! But you can still get some at the normal price. Brilliant gift idea for Christmas, if anyone you love is fond of a tipple. Or chocolate. Or both. Om nom nom.
We also raised R700 with a hilarious, down to the wire Twitter auction of two YuppieChef vouchers. Jeanette Verster and Lynette Botha both bid close to each other at the cut off time, and agreed to both meet the top offer in exchange for the vouchers. Which meant retail therapy for them and professional therapy for Noah. And the guys at YuppieChef offered to add a little sommink extra from them. Good people!
Kate George at the Food Room is also heating things up. All the spots for her Nosh4Noah gourmet Braai night on the 18th of November are booked – the lucky lot will learn how to dial their braai’ing skills up to ‘brilliant’ AND the whole evening’s takings go to Noah. Awesome. You could also book for the ‘home cooked meals’, ‘no meat Mondays’, ‘Italiano’, ‘light an easy meals’ or ‘not so scary seafood’ courses and if you quote #Nosh4Noah, 10% of your booking fee goes to the gorgeous boy. Check them out here..
The amazing @LadyRaven has been plotting a #RVCathon. A red velvet cupcake-athon! The guys at NoMu have donated a flippin’ kilo of cocoa, so there’s no doubt some serious deliciousness is going to happen. And @OdedsKitchen have donated the vanilla pods and @Fairviewwine have stepped up on the wine. What cracking sponsors. We’ve been promised photos. (This isn’t NoMu’s only involvement, but more of that later!) Check out LadyRaven’s blog post here.
On the other side of Cape Town, the Quirkstars at Quirk e-marketing have organised a cake sale (Cake or Death!?) and a pub quiz night, with loads of loola raised for Noah. Another reason we heart Quirk. Lots.
And that’s not all! Two amazing events in the pipeline.
Firstly, @kbrowski and celeb chef Neill Anthony are plotting an amazing pasta interactive demo cooking session. It looks like our favourite retailers Woolies are going to help out with the ingredients too. More on that to follow when the details have been ironed out. But @kbrowski has been a legend and we’re blown away that @neillanthony has been so generous with his time.
Secondly, notoriously Nom NoMu are cooking up another little event with the Nosh4Noah team for early December. We’re VERY excited about it.
And the best news of all? We’re ALMOST THERE! Marvelous people from all over the world, from strangers to friends, have shared the Nosh4Noah message and the support, big and small, has been flooding in.
To date, we’ve raised just over R15k. Which translates to over 200 hours of therapy for Noah.
One of our next blogs will about just that – Noah’s therapy and what this means for him.
So to everyone who’s shared this journey so far – thank you so very, very much! We think you’re amazing.
