Tuesday, May 21st, 2013
The Miss San Pedro High School (SPHS) pageant committee held the first ever “Night of Stars” Gala on Friday, May 17th at Caprice Bar and Grill. The evening was designed to officially present the seven contestants for the 2013 Miss SPHS Pageant that will take place on Saturday, June 1st. Present at the event was current Miss SPHS Arlethe Lima, Miss San Pedro Naiely Puc and Miss Chiquitita Zillah Flota. Vying for the honor to represent SPHS were contestants Veronica Choc, Isolene Bailey, Amari Duncan, Janelle Tillet, Reyna Chavez, Vivianie Duran and Chelsea Muñoz.
The event was a first for SPHS. Pageant organizer, Renison Crawford, said that the reason for this gala was to give an opportunity to the contestants to introduce themselves to the community. “I wanted to make the pageant more prestigious, and give the girls the confidence to appear in public. This is the first time that we are having such an event and we are looking forward to improving it and make it an annual event.”
The night was full of entertainment, and was hosted by Jhoshi Alexander Valencia. Delicious appetizers courtesy of Caprice were also served. The girls participated in a mini fashion show and even engaged in a question and answer segment.
Pageant coordinator, Renison Crawford, would like to thank Lisa McCorkle Guerrero for providing the venue for the event. He would also like to thank the general public for coming out and showing their support to the participants. Sponsors of the pageant are Caprice Bar and Grill, Hidden Treasure Restaurant, Belicolor and The San Pedro Sun.
