The Auction is Zip Zap’s flagship fundraising event hosted annually.

Despite having to cancel our Auction in 2020, we were delighted to have hosted a successful event in 2021.

The live event is happening again – this time on Sunday, 8th May 2022 at the Cape Heritage Square.

The date has been set and 

you are invited!

Sunday, 8th May 2022

@ The Cape Heritage Square 


 The annual Auction is an occasion! And it is also so much more than fundraising. It’s an experience. This is where loyal Zip Zap activists gather and, through their collective philanthropic action, create change and a new world of opportunities for 2000 of Zip Zap’s beneficiaries.

This special afternoon will be led by Victoria Engelhorn (Zip Zap Chairperson) as the auctioneer. Like-minded supporters and friends will gather again to reconnect with the Zip Zap cause and bid on matchless creations, collectable treasures and local and international travel or adventure experiences.

Our two world-renowned mixologists, Tetsuo Hasegawa, and Nana Shimosegawa, will join us all the way from New York to create their world-famous signature cocktails, paired with delectable snacks courtesy of award-winning chef, Liam Tomlin.

It’s an experience where guests leave with emptier pockets and fuller hearts. It’s an occasion that will lift your spirits and celebrate the power of community. Our friends leave knowing that they have made the world and our beloved South Africa a better place.

All proceeds from this much-anticipated gathering are used to fund Zip Zap’s free youth and outreach programmes, inspiring and empowering kids for life.
