O starts 10th Birthday Celebrations
19 March 2012
O, The Oprah Magazine is cutting the ribbon on its 10th birthday celebrations by offering great giveaways in the April issue (Favourite Things) and hosting a stellar event in May – all delivered in the signature style the brand is known for.
"I can’t believe a decade has come and gone so fast,” says O’s editor, Samantha Page. “Over the years, we have achieved so much, and to celebrate all of this in one month just wouldn’t do the brand justice. So we’re kicking off a year of celebrations, starting with our April issue, which focuses solely on our favourite things. Our readers have always been winners, and this month is no different as we reward and give back to them.”
The Favourite Things issue revisits a few of the most exciting items Oprah has ever given away, offers great tips on giving presents with creativity, originality and love, and local stars Lindiwe Suttle, Gert-Johan Coetzee and Jeannie D reveal the key elements of their ultimate dinner parties – a fitting way to kick-start a year of celebration. This month’s issue, as well as those of the rest of 2012, will also be supported by events, competitions and surprises.
In its illustrious 10 years in South Africa, O, The Oprah Magazine has sent 83 people to The Oprah Winfrey Show in Chicago, hosted a phenomenal 21,316 readers over 92 events and given away prizes worth millions of rands.
“These numbers don’t include the numerous local heroes profiled or community projects supported – not to mention the impact our Live Your Best Life message has had on South Africans over the years,” adds Samantha. “In the upcoming months, O will revisit some of these stories, look back at the many successes and explore ways to move forward, positively, into our next decade.”
For its 10th Birthday Lunch event, O will host 100 readers at the five-star Sun International Table Bay Hotel, in Cape Town, on Wednesday, 2 May 2012. Readers who find a Golden Ticket in their copy of the April issue will need to call the number on their ticket to claim their seat.
The April issue is on shelves from 19 March 2012 at all leading newsagents and stores. For more information on O’s 10th Birthday Lunch, see pages 54 and 55 of the magazine.
