We are so excited to report that Vilakazi will appear on Fox 25 this week!
Board member Lauren Dennison will appear with Kelli Dupuy, the reigning champion of our rock-paper-scissors tournament. This was Kelli before dominating at our last tournament:
This should be great! We are so greatful to anchor Liz Dueweke for having us! We hope this will help get the word out about our second rock-paper-scissors tournament, which is Friday evening, by the way.
We are so excited to kick off the year with two new board members: Megan Elliott and Jackie Mania.

Our Vilakazi board meetings are usually pretty fun, but there's one meeting every year that the board really looks forward to.
The wine selection meeting.
Monday night we got together and sampled a variety of South African wines. We were real connoisseurs: we ate pizza. But we did come up with a list that we think will be fantastic.
Neil Ellis Sincerely Sauvignon Blanc
Goats Do Roam Red (yes, just red)
Sebeka Cape Blend Shiraz Pinotage
Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon
Now, keep in mind that this list is tentative. Things could change. But I can tell you right now that we have a few surprises up our sleeves. This is the full list! We've got at least one more exciting wine to share with you! Hooray!
