Enthusiastic moms queued to enter their babies into the Rachel's Angels baby competition and the Mr and Miss Rachel's Angels competition had the crowd screaming for their favourites. Garry Scott-Engelbrecht from Ravensmead High School and Charlynn Philander from Malibu High School were crowned as Mr and Miss Rachel's Angels 2011.
Twenty Western Cape high schools were pitted against each other in race to showcase their entrepreneurial acumen and also raise funds for charity.
The winning school, Bernadino Heights High School, which also played hosts to this year's Market day, raised more than R38 000 with Schoonspruit High School short on their heels with an amount of R19 000. Malibu High School's stall, California, won best looking stall on the day. Gordon Secondary won the prize for best marketing on the day and Tuscany Glen Secondary won the best product prize.
"I'm grateful that we have the opportunity to contribute to at least creating self opportunities for entrepreneurs in the future. And this is our way of giving the learners a chance to find out if they like being an entrepreneur," says Professor Rachel Jafta, Chairperson of the Rachel's Angels Trust.
A portion of the funds raised during the day was donated to two Kraaifontein charities – the St. Raphael Pre-School Centre and the Kraaifontein Home for the elderly and disabled.
The day would not have been possible without our sponsors, Eskom, Bokomo, Safari, Woman360, Rene Joy Make-Up Artistry, Essie Cosmetics and De Grendel Wine Estate.
