This years’ theme – HOME FOR CHRISTMAS – pays homage to those who travel and come together to share in the spirit of Christmas through music that cannot be heard anywhere else in the world.
“As this partnership celebrates 21 years of festive music collaborations, we’re bringing everyone from around the world ‘home’ to celebrate Christmas as South Africans do. We have a world-class line-up of musicians and carols that not only set the tone for the festive season, but evoke the spirit of giving as well,” said Deirdre King, Managing Director of Jacaranda FM.
SPAR and Jacaranda FM are kindly asking fans to express their generosity and donate towards this incredibly touching cause. All donations and ticket proceeds will ensure that the Good Morning Angels team can gift vulnerable children across South Africa news toys of their own.
“We’re exceptionally proud to headline an event that sees top-tier musicians collaborate in the spirit of goodwill. More importantly, the donations collected during this incredible event make sure that we can support a cause like Santa’s Shoebox so that over 1 000 children homes in Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Pietermaritzburg, and Cape Town feel valued and special this Christmas with a gift of their own,” said Maxine D’Amico, SPAR Inland Advertising and Promotions Manager.

“Last year we raised a record breaking R400 000 and united 60 000 carolers from around the world. This year we’re hoping to raise even more, and with just 7 000 seats available for the live event, we know tickets sell out fast,” adds King.
