Mrs SA finalist hosts fundraiser for Women4Women

‘Fashion Meets Merc – Beauty Meets Benz’ was held at Hemingways Mall, marking the end of 16 Days of Activism

Zikhona Ngxata is the only Eastern Cape delegate to be selected as one of the 25 finalists for the Mrs South Africa pageant and, in her capacity as one of those finalists, she hosted a fundraising event for Women4Women at Hemingways Mall over the weekend.

Founded by Miss South Africa and 2003 Miss Universe runner-up Cindy Nell-Roberts, the foundation is about women helping other women and focuses on community upliftment and female empowerment.

The NGO aims to improve the lives of historically disadvantaged and less fortunate South African women.

The Mrs South Africa Pageant, which in itself is a female empowerment and upliftment programme, has partnered with Women4Women, the official beneficiary of the pageant’s annual fundraising ball.

Ngxata’s fundraiser, “Fashion Meets Merc – Beauty Meets Benz”, was held this past Sunday at Hemingways Mall and marked the end of the annual 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence (GBV).

Guest speaker for the event, Masimanyane Women’s Rights International founder and executive director Dr Lesley Ann Foster presented a positive and encouraging message
detailing the organisations plans to address GBV.
