The West Rand’s favourite entertainment destination, Silverstar  is hosting a family-friendly CANSA Shavathon on Friday, 8 March (from 10h00 until 19h00) and Saturday, 9 March (from 10h00 until 14h00), giving all visitors the chance to support cancer patients by spraying or shaving their heads. The event will be hosted on The Square – a great opportunity to ‘spray silver’ at Silverstar!

The CANSA Shavathon has become synonymous with camaraderie, the feel-good factor, and most importantly, hope all in a fun and positive setting. This year marks the 16th national Shavathon and the theme is #ColouringHope.

The Silverstar Shavathon will be held on The Square and the aim will be to shave or spray as many people that day as possible, to raise much-needed funds for CANSA’s unique, integrated service and holistic care and support for those affected by cancer. A nominal donation of R50 per adult and R25 per child under 12 is all you need to show your support.

The spirit of ‘being a part of something special’ will permeate throughout the precinct over the weekend, with local celebrities and influencers adding their support to the cause by bringing their shaving and spraying skills to the Shavathon station and having their heads sprayed or shaved.

Says Anneke Potgieter, Director of Operations & Complex General Manager for Silverstar: “Silverstar continues to show its caring heart for our community – and we are very excited about #ColouringHope with CANSA at our #SilverstarShavathon, which will raise awareness, instil a spirit of hope in those affected by cancer, and make a real difference in people’s lives. We look forward to welcoming everyone within our community to come to the Silverstar Square and be part of this year’s big #ColouringHope moment.”
