For the second time in under a year, Italtile Commercial has put pedal to the medal in helping to raise funds with charity organization, Wiele 500.

This organisation held its 5th Annual wine auction for the first time in KZN on 16 August 2017. Italtile was only too happy to get the wheels turning this time around after a very successful sponsorship in September 2016.


Wiele 500 has the goal of opportuning wheelchair stricken people to regain their independence. The organization was founded by a collection of passionate people who want to make a success of the group.

The event was held at the Oyster Box in Umhlanga, which has breath-taking views, world class service and as if that’s not enough, its very own lighthouse. Perhaps the beam from this lighthouse would be fitting to shine on our sports hosts, that included Stefan Terblanche, Butch James and AJ Venter.

Whether it was the wine, sublime venue or renowned South African Icons that helped to make the evening a success, is not central. It is not the how, but the how much that matters most for the benefactors of this noble cause. Together, Italtile Commercial and Wiele 500, a staggering R 850 000 has been raised through the two events – R 450 000 in September 2016 and R 400 000 in this latest event.

As it turns out, the guests who attended this event did not leave anyone wanting and heartfelt thanks must be given specifically to the following firms who made significant contributions: CA Architects, EPA Architects, BVA Architects, TC Design Architects, Growthpoint, Sakhisizwe Architects, Transmarine Logistics, Endo Vision and finally Red Jet Design.

This will not be the last event of the year with further ones lined up, promising to smash the R 1 Million mark.
