Hard Rock International is partnering with the Nelson Mandela Children’s HospitalTrust to launch a co-branded pin that will support the construction of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital set to open in 2016. The pin, featuring a 3-D hand containing the continent of Africa on an outstretched open palm, will be available for a limited time only at Hard Rock Cafe Johannesburg and online at www.hardrock.com.

To kick off the partnership and launch of the pin, Hard Rock Cafe Johannesburg hosted an acoustic concert featuring South African bands Mi Casa and Tresor along with special guests, including Hard Rock International President and CEO Hamish Dodds, on Wednesday, October 29 with proceeds benefitting the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital.
