Letter: Thank you for successful Holiday Showcase

The Ms. Senior Nye County Pageant family and Nye County Starlets wish to take this opportunity to thank all of the individuals who helped to make our recent Holiday Showcase Benefit for our local Alzheimer’s Association, Desert Southwest Chapter, a success.

We are especially thankful for the time and talents that our Las Vegas performers and members of Ms. Senior Nevada for this worthy cause.

The promotion of our local media, including but not limited to the Pahrump Valley Times, and the unfailing support of Deanna O’Donnell of KPVM-TV were invaluable to the success of this endeavor.

As always, the help and courtesy of Jason and the Nugget staff made our show a joy to produce.

We hope that our community will continue to support our efforts to help our local worthy charities.

Scotty Winegar, Pageant Coordinator

Stormi Caprice, Assistant Coordinator
