Stage set for Miss Winter

MASVINGO - Twenty beauties will battle for the $3 000 top prize in the Miss Winter Masvingo Modeling Show on tomorrow at Panyanda Lodges in the ancient city.

Candice Masimba, the director of the show, told the Daily News yesterday that the stage was now set for the highly-regarded Masvingo pageant.

“This is going to be one of the biggest Fridays of the year on our beautiful city’s entertainment calendar,” she said.

“We are lining up 20 beautiful and well-groomed girls to showcase their modelling talent. We are almost done with the preparations and we are very confident that we will deliver a pageant to remember.”

Masimba added that the competing girls will use the Miss Winter Masvingo Modeling Show to prepare for the forthcoming Miss Zimbabwe Masvingo.

“We hope that, our girls will be better placed to do well at the Miss Zimbabwe Masvingo and at the Miss Zimbabwe national finals due to their participation in the Miss Winter pageant,” she said.

“The Miss Winter show is part of our efforts to ensure that we claim our space on the national modelling map.”

The pageant director is grateful for the support the show has attracted from the Masvingo business community.

“We are grateful for the support from prominent music promoter Taurai Bucho Mudzviti, Miles Coaches proprietor Julius Jimba Marimbire and Regency Hotels director Edison Zvogbo jnr,” said Masimba.

Other than the $3 000 for the winner of the pageant, the other prizes on offer include $250 for the first princess with the second princess walking away with $200.

Some of the winners will also be given free accommodation in some local hotels as part of their prizes.

Masimba said the 20 contesting models, who have largely been drawn from Great Zimbabwe University, Masvingo Polytechnic, Masvingo Teachers College and Mogenster Mission Teachers College, have been involved in various charity programmes over the past fortnight.

“We have also had time to train them to appreciate social responsibility. Last Saturday, we were at Alpha Cottage Children’s Home where we cleaned the place and had a good time with the children,” she added.
