Three of SA’s most popular celebrities will square off against each other in the 2018 Col’Cacchio Celebrity Chef Showdown, all in the name of charity. This year we have collaborated with rapper Jack Parow, Celeb Chef Goddess Siba Mtongana and content queen Nadia Jaftha, to raise much needed funds for the Children’s Hospital Trust, on behalf of the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. These three distinguished personalities have created their very own limited-edition pizzas which will be available at all our restaurants in South Africa and Namibia from 7 September to the end of November. In its 10th year the eagerly anticipated showdown will feature a delectable line up of gourmet pizza creations, including:
Nadia Jaftha: ‘Jou Ma Sala’ – a spicy chicken Masala infused pizza | Jack Parow: ‘Wors Tokolosh’ – a meaty, braai inspired pizza
Siba Mtongana: ‘The Sibalicious’ – a flavourful sticky chicken gem
Since 2009 the campaign has raised over R2 million for charitable causes through a R5 donation from the sale of each celebrity chef pizza. This year the funds will be donated to the Children’s Hospital Trust, fundraiser for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, who are embarking on an enormous effort to raise R112 million to upgrade the Hospitals’s current Emergency Centre, which currently sees more than 43 000 patients a year.
The Red Cross Hospital takes care of around 250,000 patients each year, with a third of these patients younger than one years old. They also do high level medical training of medical professionals in South Africa and globally and their ground-breaking research into childhood illnesses has global influence.
This year’s donation will go towards helping the Hospital build a state-of-the-art Emergency Unit. Previous donations from the sale of these special edition Celebrity pizzas, have gone towards hospital improvements such as a new Surgical Ward, a Burns unit, ICU equipment and Pediatric Rehabilitation.
