On Sunday, August 8, Fashion will once again Rock the East as the Miss La Mesa and Miss Santee Pageants present their second fashion show fund raiser. Last year the event raised over $2500 to help provide scholarships to the winners, and this year they hope to reach $4000. As before, there will be a fashion show and a silent auction with some very special items. This year the silent auction includes a Barona Moments Getaway Package and a behind-the-scenes tour of the KGTV studios.
The first Fashion Rocks the East was the brainchild of 2009 Miss Santee, Sierra Billock, who is currently a contestant for the Miss California USA title. Sierra wanted to do something that would help provide future Miss La Mesa and Santee winners with suitable scholarships. The hard work and dedication of all of the directors and 2009 courts made the inaugural show a success. Now they need continued support from the communities of Santee and La Mesa to continue.
Tickets for Fashion Rocks the East are $20 and can be ordered by contacting Pageant Director Alexandra Kuty at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 619-698-4163. You can also check out Miss La Mesa and Miss Santee Pageant on Facebook. There is also a good article on the fashion show on East County Magazine. The fun kicks off with a dessert reception at 3:00 pm in the Arbor Room at the La Mesa Community Center. Come out and support these wonderful young ladies.
