The event lasted the whole night.
In attendance were Sinesipho Rabidyani and Jacob Lief. Jacob is the co-founder of the fund. In his speech, Jacob posited that children need everything for them to grow. Dressed in a stylish dress, Sinesipho stole the show. She talked of how as a young girl she hated going home after school. Her father had a drinking problem.

Her story and excellent performance in school made her qualify for a scholarship from the Ubuntu Fund. Presently, she is studying a degree in law.
During the event, the Ubuntu Fund managed to raise over $972,960. These funds shall be used in augmenting the Ubuntu Fund’s school campus in South Africa. In addition, some resources shall be channeled towards developing a modern pediatric clinic that will provide the needy children with quality healthcare services.
