International Bank Vaults (IBV) in partnership with Gateway Theatre of Shopping will be hosting the IBV Supercar Club Charity Parade on Sunday 21 September 2014. This historic event will give 200 orphaned and underprivileged children the opportunity to be driven in a Supercar and enjoy a day of fun and adventure. The Supercar parade will start at the Pavilion Hotel and end at Palm Boulevard Umhlanga (Gateway). The IBV Supercar Charity Parade will be a World first and is validated by the Guinness World Book of Records.
IBV Supercar Club is committed to making a discernible impact by driving a Guinness World Record supercar parade event in Durban on 21 September 2014. The Supercar Club aims to break a Guinness World Record by raising R1 million through a charity parade of 200 supercars down North Beach. Each supercar owner will be accompanied by an orphaned child who will be gifted a lifetime escapade.
“We are calling all supercar owners to join us at 8am at the Pavillion Hotel for this ground-breaking event by donating their time and a gift of a ride in their supercar to an orphaned child” invites Marc Rosseau, Manager of IBV Supercar Club.
Gateway Theatre of Shopping is very proud to be associated with the IBV Supercar Parade. “Corporate Social Investment is very important to us. We fully support IBV’s vision to host 200 orphaned and underprivileged children. As corporates, it is our responsibility to stabilize the social and economic environment and we will continue to make an effort to improve the living conditions of the communities in which we operate,” Akash Maharaj, Centre Manager at Gateway Theatre of Shopping.

There is a gauge of about 3.7 million orphans in South Africa. About 150 000 children are deduced to be living in child-headed households. There is nothing more excruciating for a child than to lose a parent, not to mention losing access to social grants, education and healthcare. Added to this vicissitude is the loss of adult guidance and protection. Children without apt adult care are more likely to be abused and exploited. Many orphans and impuissant children slip further into poverty once the family’s main breadwinner dies.
All money raised from the event will benefit Children’s VIP Day, The Sunflower Fund, UNICEF and Child Welfare South Africa. Donations will be audited by Guinness World Records & proceeds by Ernst & Young.
The parade will be escorted by Harley Davidson & Ducati Bikers, and led by a helicopter formation and special police escort.
