This month’s Spotlight is a bit different than the Spotlights of the past because it focuses on an event rather than an individual. Nevertheless, keep reading to find out more!

Vonni & Walter Newsome

From co-Executive Director, Vonni Newsome:

The Miss Bronx Pageant is a member of the Miss New York Organization.  The winner of the pageant will go on to compete for the Miss New York title as well as receive a full scholarship to Future Star Studios and an educational scholarship.  It will allow women through an open forum to express their talents, and opinions and achieve their professional and personal goals. All contestants are women from the 5 boroughs which include students from NYU Graduate School, Pace University, Wagner College, Fordham University and local High schools. Musical and dance performances by award winning dance troupe “Glorious Warriors” and a complimentary cocktail hour will also take place.

This event is being organized to help young women pay for college and prepare for a career in the field of their choosing. It also is helping to provide an opportunity to gain additional life experience by working and speaking on issues that affect their communities.

Walter Newsome is a Bronx City Council candidate who is organizing and sponsoring this event. He took on this venture because of his strong beliefs in Women’s Rights, Education and Community Service.

The event will be held Sunday, March 24th, 2013 from 7pm-10pm at the Bronx Museum of the Arts 1040 Grand Concourse, Bronx, NY 10456.
