To all partners and alike relating to Global Smurfs Day – 25 June

Dear partner, 

By now we have all seen that Global Smurfs Day was an amazing success, both around the word and here in South Africa. The event could not have been possible without the generosity, support, help and partnership shown by the amazing group of people Ster-Kinekor Entertainment and Sony South Africa worked with.

We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you all.

Fourways High School for providing the venue and the fantastic support. I t was an absolute pleasure dealing with Jodi and her team at the school. 

94.7 Highveld Stereo for being more than just a media partner. Thank you for an amazing campaign and for providing DJ’s and entertainment. Natalie, thank you for the support on the day itself, you were tremendous. 

Airvolution Studio’s – Our Smurfs were by far the best-in-blue and we could not have done it without Charl Bubb and his team of professionals. What an achievement Charl, when the Adjudicator, Mr. Michael Whitty, rated your work as the best that he had seen on the day. 

SA Event Decor – The hall looked amazing. Thank you for the support staff and the many hours put in to ensure that everyone’s first impression of the hall was a lasting one. Christine, you ALWAYS deliver, and I am just grateful that I have friends such as yourselves. Please extend this note onto Chris and Johan, you guys are simply the best!

Milky Lane, Monte casino – Naz, the cake looked spectacular, and apparently it tasted even better. Please let Yusuf know as well that we appreciate your support, always. 

Copper Monkey, Charlie, yet again, you arrive when we needed you the most! Your contribution was invaluable. 

Alerting the Media! For inviting, and taking care of, all the press and VIP related issues on the day along with the countless hours they spent in making the event a day to remember.

Our officials, Ivonne Bushney and Julian Wilson, who assisted in the getting the numbers right along with our adjudicator Mr. Michael Whitty.

Go Branding – Grahame, please extend our gratitude to your ENTIRE team. They all made the step up when it was most needed, and it was clear that your presence meant a great deal to us all.
