Buckaroo fever hits again! Marlene has sent out a plea of help and the community responded! Over 50 people have agreed in the last 24 hours to donate a small amount monthly to Buckaroo. This money will help in the sterilisation of township dogs and reduce the amount of unwanted puppies in the area. This improves the lives of all dogs in East London! If you would like to donate monthly, contact Marlene. Buckaroo is also in need of blankets, food and kennels, which can be dropped off at the Marlene Neumann Centre for Photography and Light at 8 Kent Road.

Marlene Neumann and her team at PE Homemakers won a silver award for Design and Excellence at PE Homemakers last week! At her first ever PE Homemakers, Marlene’s beautiful stand was recognized and given silver ahead of many other wonderful exhibitors. Marlene would like to thank the PE public who supported her at this show… Stay tuned for Marlene at Decorex this year in Johannesburg!
Marlene was interviewed on Kingfisher FM by Ethan Black on 6 June 2017. In the successful interview, Marlene discussed her upcoming exhibition at the PE Homemakers show and how she uses the medium of photography to connect to the world around her.
Marlene Neumann and her Buckaroo Charity team went into the Cintsa Township on Monday and delivered over 30 kennels. This week was particularly tough. They ventured into a new part of the township that they had never been to before and found that the conditions that some dogs – and cats- were living in were pretty bad.
They also were able to deliver blankets and food to the dogs thanks to the kind donations from people across South Africa. There is still much work to be done to improve the living conditions for many of these dogs, so please donate blankets, kennels, food, collars – even cat food- as Buckaroo needs all the help it can get. You can deliver to 8 Kent Road, Vincent, East London, or contact Marlene directly.
This June, Marlene Neumann will be exhibiting her photography at the Homemakers show in PE. This will be the first time the master fine art photographer will be displaying her work in Port Elizabeth. Having been a regular exhibitor at the Johannesburg Homemakers for over 10 years, Marlene is excited to break into the Garden route market and to be a part of the show. Of the upcoming show, Marlene Neumann said, “Its my first homemakers show in PE and I’m excited to meet the people of Port Elizabeth and looking forward to sharing my work with them”. You can attend the Homemakers show in PE at the Boardwalk from 22- 25 June.
Hosted by Rackets Hope Foundation, the Belly Dancing Extravaganza that was held on Saturday night was a huge success. The 300-strong crowd were entertained by dancers from across the country. Belly dancing was performed to rounds of applause and the reunion of the X Desert Divas stole the show! Buckaroo raised funds for their sterilization drive by selling bracelets and raising awareness at the event. Marlene appreciates the overwhelming support and generous donations that were given by the East London public.
