Miss Huntington Beach Pageant this weekend

Coming up this weekend we have a great local event that needs all our support. The Miss Huntington Beach Scholarship Pageant is this Sunday, 2pm at the Historic Huntington Beach High School Auditorium. Yes, I know it is Superbowl Sunday, but I also know there are plenty of you out there who don't care about the game,,, or maybe you can make the Pageant first then head to your football gig. Tickets are only $15 - the entrance & sponsorships all help with the girls scholarships. You can check out the girls at www.misshb.org and if you'd still like to help sponsor a girl, it is not too late, contact Carole Ann at 714-536-8888. Show these girls some Surf City support.

Lately, I've had some folks mentioning it is time to get a new car, maybe their old car is flooding out with all the rain? Maybe it is spring is around the corner and it's time for a change? Regardless of the reason, one thing that is a must is to take advantage of a broker and save yourself some time and money AND remove the stress of the car buying process. Our last 4 vehicles have been through a broker. Our local expert here in HB is W.C. Fox with Fox Auto Consultants , 714-846-7599. It has been a family business since 1934 and they know their stuff! They handle almost all makes & models of CARS, TRUCKS, VANS, & S.U.V.s!! Even if you are not in Huntington Beach, W.C. can help ou out. So if you are one of those in the market, give Fox a call and see how he can help you.
