DEBUTANTES : A Fundraising initiative for Tuks RAG
Tuks RAG Queen Competition is an integral part of Tuks Rag where the aim is to develop registered female students between the ages 18 – 23 through active participation in fundraising and community projects. The competition takes place from the second semester every year until the February of the following year.
This Fundraising initiative at the University of Pretoria is to raise money for charity, and get these girls directly involved in the Charity efforts of Tuks RAG as well as affording them the opportunity to become the face of Tuks RAG by ultimately becoming the Tuks RAG Queen. This programme is about enriching the lives of the underprivileged and as a result enriching your life as well.
The competition is currently in the second round. The response has been overwhelming and the top forty debutantes were notified on the 15th of September. Now we are all looking forward to the crowning early next year. Many thanks go to the sponsors that make this event a success every year by supporting our girls as they work hard to improve the lives of many under privileged people
Miss Tuks RAG Queen Crowning 2013
The Debutantes programme is not a beauty pageant but rather a programme directed at developing young ladies’ skills at organising fundraising and community projects.
The crowning event will be a night of glitz and glamour to honour all the hard work the ladies have put in thus far and of course to find out who will be the next Tuks RAG Queen.
The event is organised by TuksRAG, a non-profitable organisation run by students. Its purpose is to develop students by channelling their energy and their continuous search for fun into fundraising and community service projects.
