Local girls will come together in a no-makeup event designed to give them a chance to shine this Saturday, says Queen of Hearts pageant organizer Heather Downs.
Some 17 girls of all ages have signed up for the pageant/show.
“We’re having a lot of fun, and we’re making it more of a production this year, instead of a pageant,” Downs said.
With her own 5-year-old involved, Downs said she is working to keep the event going to offer a healthy activity to encourage personal growth for local girls.
“Girls around here just don’t have a lot of opportunities if they’re not involved in sports,” she said.
The girls will also have opportunities to be involved in volunteering efforts for local non-profits, and Downs hopes to keep the organization going throughout the year as a means of building friendships.
Downs said she is grateful to some 20 local businesses that agreed to help sponsor the event.
The show starts at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Village Cinema.
