Dream­ing of a ma­tric dance dress

Saturday Star - - NEWS -

LAST week­end the Saturday Star pub­lished a story in its Peo­ple of Jozi sec­tion about a man named Pet­ros Mo­fo­keng.

He spoke about his disa p p o i n t me n t at not be­ing able to af­ford to send his daugh­ter, Ler­ato, to her ma­tric farewell.

The Saturday Star has re­ceived hun­dreds of e-mails over the past week from con­cerned South Africans of­fer­ing to help Mo­fo­keng’s fam­ily.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Peo­ple of Jozi’s Face­book and In­sta­gram fol­low­ers, the Saturday Star news­pa­per read­ers, and all those who have come for­ward and of­fered to help Pet­ros send Ler­ato to her ma­tric farewell.

We would like to ask that you drop off your gen­er­ous do­na­tion at the Star build­ing at 47 Pix­ley ka Isaka Seme Street (Sauer Street) in the Joburg CBD.

We will make sure that Pet­ros and his fam­ily re­ceive them. Ler­ato will now be able to choose her own dress for the dance, which takes place at the end of the month. We will pro­duce a fol­low-up story and video.

We would like to do­nate all the dresses that she doesn’t choose to the Princess Pro­ject.
