At the beginning of this year Tuks Village adopted Vukani Mawethu Secondary School, which is situated in Mamelodi, and they have been dedicating their time and effort to raise funds for this school.
On 24 May it was the chance for all crushes and secret admirers to be put to good use and reveal their true feelings. TuksVillage hosted their Auction Night where selected students living in the residents were auctioned off to their peersto raise money for Vukani Mawethu Secondary School.
The total amount raised on the night was R5 000. The funds raised will be used to help with the school’s feeding scheme and renovations.
The residents at TuksVillage were given the chance to nominate themselves or a friend who was willing to be auctioned. Most of the bids started at R50. However, as the night progressed, the stakes rose. The highest bid for the ladies was R470. There was also the dynamic offer of a two-lady combo on the bidding list and they were auctioned off at R600. The boys were selling at very high prices, ranging from R200 to about R300. The highest amount paid for a boy was R650, after he promised to take his shirt off if the bidding started at R200.
Thanks to the participants, their boyfriends, girlfriends and admirers, the evening was a success and TuksVillage is doing their bit for charity.
