The exclusive collaboration of Zen Promotions and Abundance City International Ministries, a charismatic Pentecostal Christian movement, will offer a beauty pageant called Miss Abundance City International on 31 August 2013.
This partnership is said to be for fundraising, as the church wants to build an auditorium. The event will also raise contributions to the President Housing Relief, according to the organisers.
Popular local Promoter and owner of Zen Promotions, Zenzele Hirschfield, is at the helm of this mission. Hirschfield is also a member at the fastest growing church, having over one thousands congregants.
The church overseer is Prophet Thuso Molefhe, who is believed to be a gifted clergy, capable of performing miracles.
“In this pageant, we want to empower the youth and attract them….so that they can see the other side of Christianity as most youth love beauty pageants,” said Hirschfield.
The other purpose of organising such an event is said by Hirschfield to bridge a gap between the church and the government. Hirschfield also added that this event is their efforts, as a church, to establish working relations with the government. She said this is by supporting President Ian Khama’s administration on the philanthropy of building houses for the less privileged.
The Chairperson of the Abundance City International events committee, Tracy Maphula, revealed that P10 000 will be added on the President House Relief account to support the president’s housing appeal.
What is at stake of winning Miss Abundance City is being an ambassador and face of the church, a prize that is seen as big according to the organisers. A cash prize of P3000 will also be won.
Other benefits will be a trip for two for the queen, a designer gown by a high profile designer and a one year voucher sponsored by hairstylists Hair Lounge. A treatment at a beauty spa will also be the prize for the queen of the church.
