Millennium Jazz Restaurant has launched the search for this year’s Miss MJR 2010 with the signing of ten beauties who will compete for the title on Valentine’s Day. Miss MJR is a different pageant in that it is open to women aged 40 years and above. It is used as a platform to prove that beauty comes from within, regardless of age.
Zenzele Hirschfield, who has been contracted to coordinate the event, said that the models are currently busy practicing for the event, and the models attend daily practice sessions at the Millennium Jazz Restaurant every evening.
Miss MJR was initiated by the Jazz restaurant in 2008 as a social activity aimed at empowering women. The proceeds from the pageant are used to support different orphanages in Mogoditshane Village.
Members of the Mogoditshane community and some of the orphanages were given clothes, food hampers and blankets by the reigning princess, Phodiso Letsholo. She revealed that she had been collecting them from patrons and customers who frequent MJR.
The launch took place last Sunday at MJR and the people who were given the presents were chosen with the help of local social workers and the area councilor.
“We did this as a social responsibility initiative. The underprivileged people, together with local community elders were treated to dinner on Sunday evening courtesy of MJR. Over 200 of our regular patrons graced this noble event,” said Shima Monageng of MJR.
Entrance fee for the event is P30. Guests will be treated to dinner available at P80 for singles and P150 for doubles.
Local Jazz DJ’s and a surprise guest performer will treat lovers and contestants to an evening of love tunes.
Judging from the success of the last two editions of Miss MJR, the event promises to be a huge success and it is definitely a night not to be missed.
To register, one has to be over 40 years of age. Contact Zen at 71440010 or Albertina on 71716804.
