Attend the Mr. Capitol Pageant and support health care for Yakima Valley kids

On April 18 the Capitol Theatre’s 4th Street Theater will host the first Mr. Capitol Pageant, an evening of talent and fun featuring the top talent from each of the Yakima Valley’s YouthWorks pageant schools. Proceeds from the event raise awareness and funds for children’s health care needs in our community at Virginia Mason Memorial and Children’s Village.

Earlier this year students at West Valley, Eisenhower, Naches, Sunnyside, Wapato and East Valley high schools held pageants at each of their schools, the competition and fundraising fierce – with the real winners being area children. The highly competitive YouthWorks pageants raise money to support Children’s Village and Virginia Mason Memorial’s Neo-Natal Intensive Care and Pediatric units.

The Mr. Capitol Theatre Pageant begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets, $5, are available at the door. The 4th Street Theatre is located at 14 S. 4th St., Yakima.

Since the event was established in 2001, more than $1 million has been raised for the Children’s Health Care Fund at Virginia Mason Memorial.
