The South African Institute of Security held their annual ‘Black Tie Bash’ at the Indaba Hotel in Johannesburg on 19 February. This is their annual formal dinner and dance.
The master of ceremonies was Francois Marais, a previous Institute chairman and the band was Havana Gas who entertained the 160 plus guests throughout the evening. Surprise entertainment which has become a part of the event were three can-can girls who were received with great enthusiasm.
The guest of honour was Zonge Baloyi, the CEO of SASSETA and a patron of the Institute. Also present were Brett Jones the chairman of SAQCC Fire and former chairmen Terry Scallan, Reggie Marimuthu and Johan Du Plooy.
In his welcoming speech SAIS chairman Errol Peace paid tribute to the commitment made to the Institute by the immediate past chairman, Terry Scallan and awarded him an Institute crystal of appreciation. He also thanked Francois Marais for his master of ceremony duties at this annual event and Rosemary Cowan, the Institute administrative manager, for the organisation of the event.
