The media industry’s scariest zombies, vampires, ghouls, ghosts and mummies came out to play at the annual Advertising Media Association of South Africa’s (Amasa) party held in Lonehill, Johannesburg, this weekend.
Over 1 000 creepy party people from the media, marketing and advertising industries made their way to the party, held to raise funds for the Amasa Learnership Programme (ALP). They also collected enough toys to take a bakkie load of goodies to the Little Switzerland Children’s Home.
After greeting guests with a hair-raising Tunnel of Horror, sponsored by DSTV Airtime Sales, revellers received a bubbling blue broth, compliments of Campus Media, and were sent off to party the night away in the vampish venue.
The Continental Outdoor team was awarded the best dressed team in their Contimental Committed patient and psychopath get-up, walking away with 30 three-month Planet Fitness contracts, while Clyde from Ster-Kinekor and a scary looking ghoul from Red Cherry were the evening’s best dressed individuals, and were awarded a Citizen golf caddy bag and a Protea Hotel weekend stay for two.
The evening’s entertainment was compliments of Continental Outdoor’s DJ Lior from Pristine Moods and a band, appropriately named Twisted, who had the party rocking into witching hour.
“The Amasa parties have always been a huge industry draw card and our bash proved its popularity again this year,” says Lyn Jones, Amasa chairperson. “On behalf of Amasa Johannesburg I’d like to extend my thanks to all those who once again supported us – our sponsors; Dustine Tobler and the Amasa Committee; our members and of course all those who attended the party with such enthusiasm and horror! Amasa’s success is only because of your commitment to our cause.”
Additional sponsorship included entry arm bands, best dressed team prize and champagne sponsored by Primedia Outdoor, NAB’s GlamCam photo booth, zombie waiters dressed by ComutaNet, table decor by Image Corp and the smoke machine compliments of Provantage.
