A group of Cape Flats business owners have come together to pimp out matric pupils for their matric balls FREE of charge.
Fawwaz Mowlana and Rodger Abrahams, got together with Thorp Plumstead, LucidEye Photography and Autozone Eisleben to sponsor the matric balls for as many pupils as they possibly can. Fawwaz is the CEO of AllWheel.co.za whilst Rodger Abrahams is the COO. Whilst his car dealership is only nine months old he says his business is doing very well.
The matriculants will be supplied with everything they need for their big night, including clothing, make-up, hair, nails, photography, and a car of their choice.
The people at Autozone Eisleben are even going so far as to making special number plates for the cars, the wording which is chosen by the lucky pupil, and which they can take it home as a souvenir.
Fawwaz says he is excited and says the three events they have had so far have been successful, but he wants to do more, before matric ball season ends.
The Lentegeur businessman says he decided to help needy matric boys and girls, many of whom do not have the means to give their school years a fitting farewell.
Ibtishaam Bruckner, 21, a Grade 12 pupil at Woodlands High in Mitchells Plain, was one of the beneficiaries and she says she had a stunning night.
