As a quick update on the Knights of the round table fundraiser.
Yesterday we posted an article about a fundraiser for Joburg North org, pointing out that attendees were expected to pay R150 entrance fee.
Today another promo about the same event has been sent out. It was sent at 11:42am today – that’s 7 hours before the start of the event.
This time, the promo states that entrance is “Free of charge”.
Anyone heard of “too little too late”?.
This could only have happened for two reasons:
- Our article yesterday resulted in the org recanting (we really wish this WERE the reason).
- But the more likely scenario is that when public were told they had to pay R150 entrance fee, they objected and said they would not attend (South Africans are used to free food at ALL events). It’s highly likely that the dismal confirms and public balking at having to pay for the privilege of being parted from even more money resulted in a last minute decision to cancel the entrance fee.
To charge or not to charge – that is the question!
