AUTO & GENERAL SUPPORTS SPIER (article first published : 2004-12-22)

Leading short-term insurance company, Auto & General, has donated R1.3 million to the 2004-2005 Spier Arts Summer Season. This Season is run annually by the Spier Arts Trust, a non-profit, financially independent organisation.

Established nine years ago, the Spier Arts Summer Season has become a cultural highlight for many South Africans and is a prestigious platform for established as well as up-and-coming South African artists to showcase their talent.

Says CEO of Auto & General, Leon Vermaak, “Donating these funds to the Spier Arts Trust was an opportunity for us to support an event which uplifts and enriches the local economy both culturally as well as economically.”

This year, performers such as comedians Mark Lottering and Kurt Schoonraad, singers Johnny Clegg and Sipho Mchunu, along with soulful blues singer, Karen Zoid and rock jazz vocalist, Judith Sephuma will be keeping the crowds entertained.
