With the old year quickly leaving and the new fast approaching, I wanted to post a message I received regarding the 2009 Miss Santee/Santee Teen Pageant coming in March. The young women who represent the city at ribbon cuttings, business openings, and other functions are very bright and talented, and they have bright futures ahead of them. This message about the scholarship fund and comes from the Pageant director.
Dear Local Business,
For the past 40 years the Miss Santee Pageant has been a prominent program in our community. The young women of our city have served as youth ambassadors and have volunteered countless hours of their time serving our wonderful city. This pageant has been a tradition in our city since the 1960’s and is a well-established mentoring program for young women in our community.
On March 6, 2009 the City of Santee will host the 2009 Miss Santee and Miss Santee Teen Pageants. This year the pageant will be held at the Sonrise Community Center in Santee , CA at 6:00pm. Our organization relies on support of our community to produce our show every year. Our goal this year is to provide a scholarship for both Miss Santee and Miss Santee Teen.
Here’s how you can help! We are seeking 20 local businesses that can donate $25.00 towards the Miss Santee Scholarship fund. This will ensure a $250.00 scholarship for both Miss Santee and Miss Santee Teen. We feel that a small donation from our local businesses can make a huge impact on the lives of these young women who do so much for our community. Each business will be listed in our souvenir program book as a scholarship provider. In addition, we will send you two complimentary tickets to the 2009 Miss Santee Pageant.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Our sponsorship form is located on the reverse side of this letter for you to fill out and send in. Checks can be made payable to the Santee Chamber of Commerce.
We look forward to continuing our role as city ambassadors.
