“I am completely thrilled to be participating in this amazing initiative and to be doing it with my daughter Khai has made it even more special. The Kwesta DaKhai is definitely the kind of pizza that we would go for. We wanted to create a signature pizza that would appeal to the masses with the aim to raise as much as we could for the Children’s Hospital Trust who continue to do such remarkable work.”, explains Kwesta.
“When Col’ Cacchio approached me to be part of this campaign I jumped at the opportunity. Giving back has always been at the core of who I am. Therefore combining the two things I absolutely love – food and giving back – was just a no brainer! I hope we raise tons of money for the Red Cross Children’s Hospital because they continue to do amazing work in Cape Town.”, says Maseko
Suzelle DIY “I’m so excited to be apart of the Col’Cacchio Celebrity Chef Showdown! I have loved every minute of it – creating a delicious pizza recipe, meeting the Col’Cacchio team and the other amazing celebrities of course! But most of all, I’m so happy to be supporting the Red Cross Children’s Hospital – they do such amazing work and they are one of my favorite charities. So please go to Col’Cacchio and order the Spanakopizza guys! It’s seriously DIY-licious!”
Since 2009 the Celebrity Chef Series has raised over R2 million for charitable causes through the R5 donation from the sale of every celebrity chef pizza. Funds raised through the 2019 campaign will be donated to the Children’s Hospital Trust, a fundraiser for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, which treats children from around the country as well as kids from all over Africa.
