Attend the Mr. West Valley Pageant and support health care for Yakima Valley kids
After months of fierce competition and fundraising, the title of Mr. West Valley will be decided on Wednesday, Feb. 24 ‑‑ pageant night at the high school. The real winners, though, are area children.
West Valley is one of five local schools participating in this year’s highly competitive Children’s Miracle Network/YouthWorks pageants to raise money for the Children’s Health Care Fund, which benefits child health care at Memorial Family of Services: Children’s Village, Memorial’s Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit and Memorial’s Pediatric Unit.
In the months before their school’s pageant, contestants hold a variety of fundraising events to raise money for the local Children’s Miracle Network hospital. Efforts culminate on pageant night, when a winner is named based on money raised, talent and other events that evening.
Mr. West Valley will be chosen by a panel of judges beginning at 7 p.m. in the school’s auditorium. West Valley High School is located at 9800 Zier Road. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door.
Since the event began in 2001, more than $800,000 has been raised for the Children’s Health Care Fund at Memorial.
