Jacques-Yves Cousteau described generosity perfectly when he said “It takes generosity to discover the whole through others. If you realize you are only a violin, you can open yourself up to the world by playing your role in the concert.”  The 9th annual Gourmets and Gourmands championed by Hartmans on behalf of Carpe Diem School is truly an event where generosity is made visible.  On 26 August 2017, the ±200 guests will witness again how big the hearts of the Southern Cape business community is when the sponsors “play their role in this concert”. 

Hartman & Son Butcher is the premier sponsor of the Carpe Diem School Gourmets & Gourmands for the sixth consecutive year.  This family business believes a "quality" community caters for a "quality" workforce and therefore they strive to be an integral part of their community.  Raffaele D’Amato Jewellers will again add splendour to the annual Carpe Diem School Gourmets and Gourmands with their donation.  Carpe Diem School is excited to have Nedbank on board as a sponsor.  Nedbank believes in empowering the youth and their participation in this event will do just that.  Other sponsors such as local artist René Scribante, Michael Pashut of Commercial Auto & Bus, Fancy Functions, Xerox and of course Rudy de Bruyn of Ciro Coffee help to make this event a success.

Carpe Diem School accommodates children from all over the Southern Cape (Riversdale, Albertinia, Mossel Bay, Hartenbos, Little Brak River, Great Brak River, George, Hoekwil, Sedgefield, Karatara, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, and the Cragg’s) and the school forms a vital part of the Garden Route and Karoo communities.  Funds raised during Gourmets and Gourmands have in the recent past been allocated to acquire four electric wheelchairs, a playroom and a room specifically designed for children with autism, develop the computer centre and to install a special floor for their basketball court especially for their champion wheelchair learners.
