Brides line up for pageant fundraiser
Yes, you can have more mileage from your wedding gown and relive that special day.
If you were married in Manawatu between August 1, 2014, and July 31, 2015; if you were born here, lived here, studied here, married someone from here, or even settled here after the wedding, you can enter the Somerset Kindergar- ten Bride of the Year show.
Pageant coordinator Marlene Abbot says terrific community and sponsor support means there are wonderful prizes for the top three placegetters, bride’s choice and audience choice winners along with gift bags for the brides, raffles and auctions.
‘‘We also have some lovely kindergarten fairies and pageboys who will appear on stage beside the beautiful brides, reminding the audience of the reason for the event, and to bring a definite cute factor into the evening.’’
The kindergarten’s main annual fundraiser, the money raised from this year’s show on Monday, September 7, in the Regent on Broadway, is going towards upgrading and refurbishing the kindergarten building.
‘‘Contact us now as entries close on July 31. The numbers are increasing every day and you don’t want to miss out.’’
‘‘Cute factor’’ Somerset Kindergarten kids will be fairies and pages for the Bride of the Year pageant.
