To help spread a little love this Valentine’s Day, the Helpful Honda Guys, known as the “Guys in Blue” delivered a sweet surprise of complimentary red roses on Feb. 14.
Brianna Solis of Ontario was recently selected to participate in the 2013 Miss Jr. Pre-Teen Pasadena/San Bernardino pageant competition on March 2. She only has until Feb. 24 to raise $495 through sponsorships from businesses in the community.
Brianna submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s Pasadena/San Bernardino Pageant Coordinator. She will be competing, for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants.
Brianna will be competing in the Miss Jr. Pre-Teen division, one of four divisions that will have young ladies ages of 7 and 19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Most important, Brianna will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year’s Pasadena/San Bernardino judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.
If Brianna were to win the title of Miss Jr. Pre-Teen Pasadena/San Bernardino, she would represent Pasadena/San Bernardino and the surrounding communities at the National Competition that will take place in Orlando, Florida.
Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Brianna in participating in this year’s competition by becoming an official sponsor to her. Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals, and financial support which will allow Brianna to become a very confident and well-prepared contestant in this year’s Pasadena/San Bernardino Pageant.
Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Brianna may contact the Miss Jr. Pre-Teen Pasadena/San Bernardino pageant coordinator, at 1-877-403-6678.
