Mossel Bay woman vying for title
Jacqueline Coetzer, a resident of Mossel Bay, is participating in an international pageant in Cape Town from 9 to 14 January.
During the Hope Pageant, an international event based on a Christian perspective, Coetzer will be competing against women from all over the world. Ingrid Burger, Mrs United Nations 2014, is the co-founder of the Hope Pageant, which is open to women from all walks of life. Title holders are expected to actively do charity work among their communities. "I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to my journey as Mrs Hope Elite Western Cape. I have, thanks to the support, established my own food network through which I am hoping to help reach those in need. This has been a dream of mine for many years," Coetzer says. Anyone wishing to contribute towards her project, Jacqueline Journey, can contact Coetzer (084 628 4805). She is also donating food to Bright Star safe house for 29 orphaned children, as well as clothes to teenagers and babies. Donations of bedding for the home are also welcome.
