The longest thread wins, but our money is on the Gogos. <br>The event is in support of all of Relate’s causes, including Ikamva Labantu, Reach for a Dream, Grassroots Soccer, The Amy Biehl Foundation, Operation Smile, and Goodbye Malaria. <br>In five years of existence, Relate Bracelets has raised more than R28million for a variety of causes. Over 60 in fact: from wildlife conservation and health programmes through to early childhood development and women’s empowerment – and many others. <br>The first Relate Bracelets Bead Off for Mandela Day saw a group of beaders, The Gugulethu Gogos, take down Western Cape Rugby players Cheslin Kolbe, Juan de Jongh and Nic Groom in a speedy beading challenge – an act which brought the proud elderly bracelet makers fame via print, online and social media, and bragging rights for a year.  <br>Please join us for the second annual Relate Bracelets Bead Off at the V&A Waterfront (Between the Watershed and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club), from 11am to 1pm on Tuesday 14 July. <br> </p></div>GP0|#7ccdc7d9-6e1b-4ee7-920a-61db1a388eb5;L0|#07ccdc7d9-6e1b-4ee7-920a-61db1a388eb5|Portswood Garage;GTSet|#77ffa18a-c716-4e28-9e0f-14946dccab8finfo@relate.org.zawww.relate.org.zahttps://www.facebook.com/RelateBracelets https://twitter.com/RelateBracelets http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCey4HHYfSV7VMTINk0tX41A https://plus.google.com/115746955002194610044/postshttp://www.pinterest.com/relatebracelets/http://http//instagram.com/relatebracelets <img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/PublishingImages/Lists/Event%20List/SummaryFlatDev/Relate%20Image%20380px%20X%20500px.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />GP0|#1d86d341-0eaa-4d67-97a2-d77258073d8e;L0|#01d86d341-0eaa-4d67-97a2-d77258073d8e|Family;GTSet|#75375da6-0815-46ce-a6c6-47b9173f8b31GP0|#1c514f2b-bf89-410f-a629-576d1a3b8a8c;L0|#01c514f2b-bf89-410f-a629-576d1a3b8a8c|July;GTSet|#355f269d-aab9-44ed-8fa8-0a2190be40d801<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/PublishingImages/Relate%20Image%20265px%20X%20180px.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><div class="ExternalClass97F36F35BA1146738BD00766BF7F1488"><p>​N/A</p></div>11h00 - 13h00FreeGP0|#2f9492e9-d389-4087-a3ff-71d2822d1ad7;L0|#02f9492e9-d389-4087-a3ff-71d2822d1ad7|relate-bead-off-2015;GTSet|#8dbb8159-f73a-4db5-89b5-12dd3cd66408WatershedRelate bracelets in a beading challenge to raise awareness of SA’s senior citizens ahead of Mandela Day.
