SINCE ITS re-opening Sun City is abuzz and it won’t dim lights anytime soon.
Recently the refurbished complex, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, hosted the Xmas Lights Switch On ceremony, although different because there were no festivities this time around.
With the fanfare and excitement with which this event is synonymous with, the festive lights switched on simultaneously across the resort, much to the delight of guests, families and kiddies who came in large numbers to witness this annual switch on.
Usually, the ceremony is attended and switched-on by a Golfer, as part of the Nedbank Golf Challenge build-up but this year, things changed as a result of the pandemic that saw the challenge postponed for next year. However, it was replaced by SA Open, one of the oldest Golfing event in SA.
Guests who graced the ceremony included Sun International headhonchos CEO Anthony Leeming and COO Graham Wood, Premier of North West province Job Mokgoro, Tourism Minister Mamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane, Sun City resort manager the affable Brett Hoppé and other MECs.
Excited to be part of the ceremony visiting guests feasted on cakes and goodies prepared by one of the world’s best and award winning resort.
“We would like to extend our sincere thanks to our guests who have taken the hard decision to bring their families to our resort as we experience the pandemic. We promise we shall and continue to adhere to all Covid-19 regulations as evidence from your entry at the gate,” commented Hoppé.
