  12. I would love to experience the grand white party with my boyfriend. And we are celebrating 6 years of being in a relationship this month. This would be an awesome gift for us

  13. Just by looking at the pictures and by listening from people that have been in the event this is really what I need this year. This is the year of change to me.

  14. What an amazing experience this would be for a single mommy (or 2) to attend and just breathe a bit. We all want to play dress up no matter how old we are, I know I sure do in order to regain some semblance of sanity😊

  15. This would be such an amazing experience and also an opportunity to see one of my favourite South African celebs and also attend the event for the very first time #ItMustBethatAfricanButter

  19. We don’t deserve it any more than anyone else but we have had 2 very stressful years and although in our fifties and sixties ( most of the time feeling much younger ), would love this opportunity to unwind, throw caution to the wind and party like the Kennedys!!

    • The Grand White.. Wow I’d definitely love to be part of this experience plus Mafikizolo and Bonang are winning, great entertainers

  23. The Grand White event is in it’s 5th year and sadly I have never attended it at all. Winning this competition would be an amazing experience and fun from what I have seen following on social media. Best of all the surprise of a secret location, Bonang as the host and Mafikizolo…a grand kickoff to 2018!

  24. February is my birthday month and this year I am turning 30. I had planned to celebrate in style and The Grand White was part of the celebrations however due my studies I am unable to afford the tickets. I will be doing my 1st level of a Postgraduate Diploma and registration with textbooks costs close to 10k. Winning these tickets would mean I get to enjoy my birthday month the way I wanted to and it will also be a nice last party as the studies will keep me so occupied I won’t even have a social life. Oh! plus I would love to meet Bonang, I feel like we should be friends but she just doesn’t know that yet. 😜
