The Global Charity Trust  “Linking The World For A Worthy Cause”

Global charitable trust has employed the SHG & JLG methodology to reach and serve the poor with diverse financial products in the process building long-term relationships with the clients and their families. Global charitable trust has always gone a step beyond just providing money and has been working with its clients to build productive assets and small enterprises to reduce poverty.

Global charitable trust intends to follow twin strategy of geographical expansion and vertical penetration in order to increases outreach and efficiency and to fuel growth. The strategy also reduces geographical concentration risk and an effective competition countering strategy.

The Trust also raised funds for the Wola Nani Foundation and Nelson Mandela Kids Foundation.

The evening consisted of a full 4-course meal, auction, and dancers! Entertainment was provided by the lovely Miss Lira and the charismatic Arno Carstens.

The set backdrop was filled with the poly-cut decor in diamonds, large colorful lightboxes and the Shimmy logo in blue. Recessed in these sets were two 10/7 projection screens. Christie Digital projectors were used to run live video feed, sponsor’s logos and presentations. There were 2 of our 60″ Samsung plasma screens set up on trussing and this along with the Shimmy’s screens were linked to our system using HDMI and DVI cabling.

The inside restaurant was lit up using Brite Q BT60 Spots and Versa-Lite LED Parcans. This gave a cool glow to the area which was exquisitely decorated by the awesome team at Something Different.

The night would not end there though, with The Global Party only getting started around 12 am with a host of DJs getting the groove on! With over 360 parties around the world in 3 days, the party would have the earth grooving for a worthy cause!

The Global Party - Shimmy Beach Club After-Party

For the after-party, we set up a curved white gloss cladded stage, with our DJ Surround area having poly-cut “The Global Party” lyric. We set up a truss lighting rig using Martin Entour Mac250, Chauvet Strip LED  lighting, Spectre 3D Lasers, and Futurelight 240 scanners.

The audio rig and DJ equipment supplied by the Shimmy Beach Club consists of a powered JBL VRX system, Pioneer CDJ2000s, and a DJM2000 Pioneer DJ Mixer.

It was a massive effort from our crew as all equipment was removed by 7 am the next morning. We’d also like to mention how great it was working with Instant Flooring and Toureg Tents for the event flooring and tent.
