The view of Sandton from the penthouse was exquisite and with champagne and good company, the party started off in style. Later, Jon invited all his guests to continue the celebrations at Johannesburg’s hottest club, The VIP Room. To raise funds for a charity very close to Jonathan, the public were invited to join him at The VIP Room, and proceeds of ticket sales donated to Princess Alice Adoption Home. Happy birthday Jon!
