Robben Island SleepOut event to celebrate Mandela’s centenary

On July 18 – what would have been Nelson Mandela’s centenary – 67 global influencers, business leaders and celebrities will spend the night inside the former maximum-security prison and courtyard on Robben Island, where Mandela spent 18 years, with the aim to raise $67-million. On the same night, an auction will be held for the highest bidder, starting at $25 000 to sleep inside cell number seven, Mandela’s home during his imprisonment.
