There are two main parts to the programme.
They work together to enable substantial funds to be raised to save Rhinos.
Blank life-size models of rhinos will be delivered to
the artist's studios or to public painting spaces.
Our artists, both famous and emerging, using the Rhino
sculptures as their canvases, will transform their Rhinos
from plain white models into imaginative, beautiful and
VALUABLE pieces of Contemporary Art.
The 100 or more pieces will form the basis of a
region-wide three month long Outdoor Art Exhibition
which will be viewed and enjoyed free of charge by
hundreds and thousands of people during The Cape's
busy summer season.
During the Exhibition many exciting events will be
taking place attracting substantial publicity leading up
to the major event which comes at the end of
The Exhibition - The Auctions.
These two components, the Exhibition and the Auctions
work together to raise funds to save the real rhinos.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
The Sponsor, either person or business, may
bid for a Rhino online or at the Live Gala Auction.
Top of the sponsorship heap will be either one exclusive
Presenting Patron or a Trio Of Extraordinary Patrons.
The sponsor(s) will enjoy maximum brand exposure with
their logo and brand appearing together and at the same
size as The Rhinos Are Coming!!! branding where ever it is
featured. This is in addition to the many other powerful
benefits to be enjoyed only at this level.
Level Two: A sponsor will own their Rhino from the
beginning. Their Rhino will go into the Exhibition but will
NOT go into the Auction. After the Exhibition the sponsor
may use their Rhino in many differing ways as a vehicle
with which to market and promote their brand.
Level One: businesses may sponsor a Rhino which wil be
branded with their logo and mission.The Rhino will belong
to the sponsor for the length of the
The extended Sponsorship Drive is running
until November 2018. Businesses are offered opportunities
to promote and spread awareness for their brands by
sponsoring a Rhino and using it as a marketing tool.
Advertising and Public Relations campaigns will run
throughout the sponsorship drive, created by companies
who have sponsored Rhinos and our own PR programs.
Social media is covering activities and will cover
the many fun events that run throughout the program.
Sponsors at level one will select a Rhino Work Of Art
from illustrated lists of Rhino Designs featured on the
website. There are sponsorship levels to suit all budgets.
Sponsors may choose a Rhino on a first come first served
basis which will appear in the Exhibition and will then go on
to be auctioned, either online or at the Gala Auction Event.

RUNNING COSTS OF THE PROGRAMME?
