“Our annual Gala Dinner and Auction is our biggest fundraising event,” says Valentino Barriosseta, Founder and CEO of Bridges for Music. “It not only offers an evening of entertainment like no other, but it also touches the lives of many young people in under-served communities. Every year, we’ve raised money that has transformed the lives of so many people. To date we have raised over R2 million with this event becoming one of our biggest fundraising events of the year to fund the Bridges Academy in Langa. Thanks to the funding raised through this event, we are able to provide world-class creative education in the heart of Langa in a facility like no other on the continent. It’s not only touching the lives of many students and their families, but it is also paving the way for a new model of creative education and the role of music in supporting the learner’s journey.”

We are proud of the long-standing partnership with Bridges for Music and the impact that it has created already, and will continue to support their endeavours for years to come,” says Shaun Duwe, Ultra South Africa partner and director.

Don’t miss your chance to rub shoulders with the music and entertainment industry’s leading names, while making a genuine impact in the lives of South Africa’s creative youths. Previous years have seen VIP guests such as DJ Snake, Dash Berlin, Siya Kolisi, Dubfire and more in attendance, and rumour has it that 2023 will be even bigger than that!
