AVANI Hotels Lesotho has teamed up with women’s empowerment movement, DIVA Network Southern Africa to spice up their annual Back2School Party which will be held at AVANI Maseru on Saturday.
Held under the tagline Back2School SWAGG with the Boys, the attendees, especially the ladies, are expected to wear their uniforms in a stylish manner by putting on colourful socks and Chuck Taylor’s All Star sneakers.
In a departure from the norm, this year’s edition will move away from the hotel’s convention centre to an outdoor setting by the poolside with local disc spinners DJ Tseko, Counter Force, Lady Dee and Linah serenading revelers.
AVANI Lesotho Hotels Sales and Marketing Manager, Mabahlakoana Motemekoane this week told the Weekender that the hotel always came up with innovations to make each event positively unique hence this year’s partnership with the DIVA Network.
“For every event, it is essential that the entertainment is varied so that it can stay relevant and that is what we always do with the Back2School show,” Motemekoane said.
She said it was only fitting to join forces with the DIVA Network upon realising they had earmarked events with similar concepts.
“We are bringing the fashion essence into the classic event and men should not feel left out since we have the DIVAs on board but they should see this as an opportunity to party with them,” she said, adding they were partying for a good cause as part of the proceeds would be donated to the Hlokomela Banana initiative aimed at providing vulnerable girls with sanitary towels countrywide.
She said there were lots of prizes for revelers including the best dressed “student”.
