YPO WPO Cycle Tour Event

March 2015.

The YPO (Young Presidents’ Organisation) and WPO (World Presidents’ Organisation) Cape Town chapters recently hosted a Cape Town Cycle Tour pre-race dinner for their members.

The event hosts, Paul Berman and Suzanne Ackerman-Berman invited  YPO members from around the globe to gather at their home to enjoy a dinner with guest speakers Phil Liggett (Tour De France Commentator, affectionately known as “The Voice of Cycling”) and Shlomo Nimrodi (Amputee Cyclist).

It was announced at the dinner that Pick n Pay would be donating the proceeds of the Pick n Pay hospitality costs of the YPO and WPO members to Velokhaya – a total of R20 000. Members of the organization joined in the spirit of the evening and the amount was matched by Wayne Hughes, Managing Director of Titan Digital. A further 30 bikes were donated by Marc Ackermann, CEO of Evolution Holdings.

A very big thank you from all of us at Velokhaya.
