Beauty seek­ing spon­sor­ship

Franklin County News - - News - By SALLY HINE

A Waiuku preschool teacher is in the run­ning for Miss World New Zealand this year and is seek­ing lo­cal spon­sor­ship to help get her there.

Kyla Hei Hei has en­tered beauty con­tests be­fore but this is the be-all and end-all for her as she en­ters the run­ning to be Miss New Zealand with the chance of com­pet­ing for Miss World.

The for­mer Miss Franklin has been through the first heats for Miss World New Zealand and now she needs $1000 to en­ter as a fi­nal­ist.

‘‘ It’s re­ally ex­cit­ing but I re­ally need to get lo­cal sup­port be­hind me.

‘‘ And it’s a good way for Franklin busi­nesses to get pub­lic­ity,’’ she said.

Kyla has to pro­vide her clothes for the event and hair and makeup but, due to the state of the econ­omy, she and other pageant en­trants are strug­gling to get fi­nan­cial back­ing.

Miss World New Zealand is on April 25 and, with only 16 fi­nal­ists, Kyla has a good chance at achiev­ing top spot.

Any busi­ness that of­fers spon­sor­ship gets free ad­ver­tis­ing at the events and on the Miss World New Zealand web­site.

Kyla can be con­tacted on 021 0515 902.
