The UCT Golden Key Society recently won a Key Chapter award at the Golden Key International Summit in Las Vegas, which acknowledges it as one of the top chapters in the world.

Having been awarded silver status for the 2015/2106 year, the UCT chapter pulled out all the stops in 2016/2017 and were rewarded with gold status. A few highlights from the period include collecting 700 Easter eggs for three different orphanages, raising enough money to feed a class of scholars from Surrey Primary for the 2017 school year, and teaching scholars from Ikamva Youth in Khayelitsha how to apply for university.

With gold status behind them, the UCT Golden Key Society applied to become a Key Chapter – an honour that was bestowed on them at the Las Vegas summit.

Joanna Taylor, president of the UCT chapter, said, “[We] have worked tirelessly for the past two years to place the UCT Golden Key Chapter on the map internationally. This type of recognition has motivated us to continue to strive to be the best chapter we can be.”

Their next event is Beards4Breasts on 7 October 2017, which is being held in partnership with Pink Drive. Members will be on Jammie plaza spraying beards and hair to raise money and awareness in aid of breast cancer.
