Celebrating the girlfriends and wives of the blitzboks

Jan 13, 2020

As you might have noticed, CBD Marketing has a passion for sport, more specifically Rugby!

For us it’s not so much about what happens on the field (obviously we love it when our team wins), but more about what happens behind the scenes.  What makes each player great, how a team gets managed, etc.  One group of people that plays a massive role in each player’s life and whom we believe is greatly undervalued, is the girlfriends and wives of the players.

Since 2018, CBD Marketing has been involved in organising a morning of thanks and celebration for each girlfriend and wife of the South African Sevens Rugby team and 2019 was no different, only better.

Often there is no budget for an event like this.  Therefor we rely on the help from sponsors and brands to make this breakfast happen.  On 14 December 2019 (the Saturday morning of the Cape Town Sevens) we really went all out.   The Bay Hotel in Camps Bay was generous enough to have sponsored the venue and the breakfast for all 40 ladies.  Guerlain sponsored two makeup stations with makeup artists so that the ladies could do make-overs during the morning.  Wilderer Gin came out to give a special gin tasting. We also got Wesgro on board to sponsor a big part of the morning.  The ladies were spoiled by American Swiss (Sterns) whom gave each woman a personalised pendant.  Other gifts from brands like Cotton On, La Prairie, Burnt Studios, Asics, Gary Rom, JSM Lingerie etc. also were arranged.  I think it is safe to say that it was a successful celebration.

Thank you once again to every sponsor and a special thank you to each lady that came out and celebrated with us.  We cannot wait to see what 2020 has in store for the Blitzboks.
