NEW PAGEANT ON CARDS

LOCAL models have a chance to showcase their beauty through a new pageant, Miss Legacy Zimbabwe, which seeks to celebrate cultural diversity.
According to organisers, the pageant which also seeks to promote local heritage and advance tourism, will be inaugurated on December 9 at the 7 Arts Theatre.
Pageant founder, Pauline Mapuvire told H-Metro that their main focus is to promote the Zimbabwe’s heritage.
“Miss Legacy Zimbabwe will be an annual tourism and charitable developmental beauty pageant which we hope to use to empower ours girls and advance tourism and promote charitable.
“Our inaugural contest will be held on December 9 at the 7 Arts Theatre.
“The pageant believes in producing world class groomed models that will idolise every woman in Zimbabwe who stands for positive development and inspires others to do better,” she said.
Mapuvire, who also runs a modelling agency, added:
“Our participants will work on projects about Zimbabwe’s heritage, tourism, culture and charitable cases that will inspire and tell our own story through their beauty.
This month the models will be working closely with nine children who have a condition called Xeroderma Pigmentosum, a rare genetic disorder, which doesn’t allow them to be exposed to the sun.
One local wheel-spinner, DJ Luckie Dee has partnered with the pageant and will be offering his services for free at the concert.
The upcoming wheel-spinner has made his name in local clubs and gigs in South Africa.
“The pageant will host a fundraising concert for the children on October 21 at the Theatre in the Park and invites all musicians, DJs and corporate.”
