a couple of announcements

This week we have a couple of public service announcements for you.
First, the Miss Huntington Beach Scholarship Pageant is just around the corner and they are still looking for applicants from girls wishing to change their lives forever. It is for girls between 17-24 years-of-age, who either work or live in Huntington Beach. They can apply now at www.misshb.org . Applications must be turned in by January 25 by 7pm, inside the Old World Village Festival Hall, 7561 Center Ave. or via the website. Interested contestants can also call the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce: 714.536.8888. The contest for the crown is February 19th and will be held at the Historic Huntington Beach High School Auditorium. The new Miss Huntington Beach and her court receive scholarship money and annually the Queen competes in June for the title of Miss California. Please pass this info on to any gal who might be interested.

The Pageant is also sponsoring a Little Princess section in this year’s Pageant. The Lil’ Princess program is open to ages 5-12 and includes a crown, sash and a dance on the stage. The program participants will share in a tea party with Miss Huntington Beach herself. Additional questions can be answered by Pam Alagata, executive director, at 714. 654.9219.

Another announcement: Coming up on January 28, 6pm-9pm, will be the Kick Off Party for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life that is held here in Huntington Beach. Learn what the Relay is all about. Speakers, light appetizers, raffles, silent auction, fun! This event is to "kick-off" our Relay season and our fundraising efforts to help find a cure for cancer. www.relayforlife.org/huntingtonbeachca has more info. The kick off will be held at Endless Food and Fun on 7227 Edinger Ave. Here's an idea, plan to arrive early and enjoy dinner at their endless buffet - only $9.99. While you attend the kick off, you can let your kiddies (if you brought them) enjoy all the arcade games or lazer tag. I'm sure it would cost less than leaving them at home with a babysitter!! Keep up to date on the Relay at www.relayforlife.org/huntingtonbeachca .

And speaking of the Relay Kick Off, if you'd like to get your business a little extra recognition and do something good for this cause, please consider donating something for our raffle or silent auction. Every bit we raise that night goes toward our HB Relay. You will get recognition for your donation in our program and it would sure help us out. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like donate something. I thank you in advance for considering helping.

Don't forget tonight is the opening night of the Wednesday specials at the Huntington Beach Playhouse . The schedule of the shows can be found on their site (as well as my calendar section). www.hbph.com. I'll be there tonight for the first show! Maybe see you there.....
