Senior Citizens to hold annual Miss Gulf County Valentine’s pageant

Published: Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 09:10 AM.

For more than 30 years, the Gulf County Senior Citizens Association has sponsored the Miss Gulf County Valentine’s Pageant. This event is an evening of absolute fun for the entire family and is centered around our beautiful young ladies in age categories from infants through high school seniors.  There is a category for every age group. 

There are some very nice prizes given away.  First, about 25 door prizes will be given away throughout the evening. Each contestant will receive a memento for participation and a college scholarship is given away to Miss Gulf County.  One of the more popular prizes in the past has been a complete beauty makeover and cosmetic consultation by award winning professional beauty consultant and artist, Ms. Dee Dee Morris of Dothan, Alabama (Facebook: Dee Dee Morris, Dothan Al). 

According to Mrs. Barbara Mannon, President of the Gulf County Senior Citizens Board of Director, this event is used to raise funds for Gulf County Seniors.  “We have had excellent community support in the past, but we are looking for increased sponsorship this year.  The change in Florida Medicaid has dramatically impacted our funding and we need the community’s assistance more than ever.”  The funds will be used to provide meals, companionship, social activities, personal care, housekeeping, and other vital services needed so our elderly can stay active and in their homes. 

Please call the Senior Center at 229-8466 for sponsorship information or send donation checks to 120 Library Drive, Port St. Joe, Florida 32456. 

Your donation is tax deductible.

The event will be held at the Wewahitchka Elementary School Auditorium at 6 p.m. CT Saturday, Feb. 8.  Applications to participate as a contestant are available from the Center or through your school office.  Applications must be turned in no later than Feb. 3 in order to participate.  This event is not held in conjunction with any other nationally sponsored contest, but is strictly for the young ladies and families of Gulf County. 

Please come join us!
