There are seven more weekends left to enjoy our summer lounge before we close for the winter! We still have the Overstrand Late Summer Festival running at the lounge with different exhibitions taking place each week. There is an exciting line up during Easter, more details to follow soon! The lounge has been such a hit so far among locals and tourists in Hermanus, they love to relax and put their feet up! Have a look here!
In February we had the honor of hosting a very special event with The Global Challenge at our restaurant. Monique Kalkman, an amazing paraplegic sports woman, was asked to help raise funds for OAPD by sharing her story at Dutchies amongst friends, locals and professional female golf players from around the world. Monique, after being diagnosed with cancer became paralyzed from the waist down. Monique revisited her dreams and became the only Paralympic champion, in two sports namely, wheelchair tennis and table tennis. She became the first and only female athlete in two different individual sports winning golden Paralympic medals. Her inspirational story she shared with us has left footprints in our hearts!
During her time in Hermanus, Monique was invited to host a tennis and table tennis workshop for the disabled in Hawston with the clients of OAPD. It left them with a refreshing look at overcoming obstacles and pursuing their dreams!
Thank you to Monique and Tania from the The Global Challenge for allowing Dutchies to be apart of this special initiative and event!
On Sunday the 19th of March during the afternoon, Dutchies will be welcoming the Lighthouse to Lighthouse ladies from their 100 km walk. The restaurant will be closed during that time and will reopen for dinner!
