Potjie Day & Garage Sale

Enter your team of four at a cost of R120.00 per team and show us what you’ve got cooking in your pot. Teams are expected to bring their own meat and vegetables for the Matt’s Foundation potjie competition; rice, bread rolls and salad will be provided. Cooking kicks off at 09:00 and your potjie should be ready for adjudication at 14:00.

The day promises to be great fun for everyone, including the ever-so-popular Garage Sale, a beer tent and a jumping castle for the kids, as well as live entertainment and loads of exciting prizes. For those who don’t want to take part in the competition, potjiekos will also be sold at R30.00 per plate.

Vereeniging, Gauteng (October 3, 2012) Matt’s Foundation will be hosting their annual Garage Sale and Potjiekos Competition at the Riviera on Vaal Country Club on Saturday, 13 October 2012. The aim of the day is to generate funds for Matt’s Foundation and competition entrants will be given the option to donate portions of their pots’ revenue to Matt’s.

Teams, consisting of a minimum of one and a maximum of four members, can participate for only R100.00 per team. They can start their fires at 09:00 and their pots must be ready for judging at 14:00. There will be lots of great prizes up for grabs, including one for the most disorganized team.

A garage sale will also take place at the same time as the competition, adding some more entertainment to the day and to raise even more funds for the Foundation. Inyama’s potjie will be available at R30.00 per plate and there will be live entertainment by Bruno and Lloyd. Kids can have fun on the jumping castle or on the Pitch and Putt course at the Riviera on Vaal Country Club. If you enjoy a good draft, you’re in for a treat as drafts will be available from the beer tent at R12.00 each. Should you decide to buy two drafts, Inyama will include a jelly shot for free.

Be sure to join us on 13 October 2012 – it’s going to be a greatly entertaining day out for the whole family – all in aid of a great cause.
