I was invited to act as the RED CARPET HOST for the 5th Annual Pin-Up Pageant at the Palace Station Hotel. Everyone was excited about the talent contest with a magician and musician competing as they each gave me an example of their skills during our red carpet interviews.
It was fun meeting the contestants, judges and others involved in several events happening this evening, one for female and another for male contestants. These contests are special because one offered cash toward a scholarship for a high school student- T 501 (C) 3 Femmes & Fellas Non Profit, High School Senior’s Scholarship Fund. Everyone can have fun and help a high school senior!
There was so much happening at the Pin-Up Pageant packed into one big night for your enjoyment! They are featuring a Red Carpet/Meet & Greet Hosted by Talk Show Host Sandy Zimmerman, Celebrity Judges, Talent Show, TWO bands: Lil Mo’ & the Dynaflos (LA) & The Dreamboats (Canada), Dapper Men’s and a Women’s Pin-Up Competition, 30+ Sponsors as well as Vendors.
The guests went back to the past at Amber Burkhart’s Pin-Up Pageant when everyone dresses in vintage clothes and listens to vintage music. Amber said, “There are from an average of 40-60 pageants in Nevada each year. Our Pin-Up Pageant is classy and nonjudgmental, with three bands, judges, and vendors.
She began five years for the first time with immediate success of welcoming 200 people but more and more each year. The second year there were 450 people with SRO and they counted 1,000 last year. It’s fun with contests, entertainment and plenty to do.
You will have all of the fun of an old fashioned Pin-Up Pageant in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s with enough time to enjoy from 6 pm -1 am. The 5th Annual Pin-Up Pageant is the largest in Nevada with over 1,000 in attendance.
The large room held a professional stage for bands and entertainment while several tables were filled with all types of goods for sale. The entertainment contest judges sat next to the stage and the audience were seated in a special area.
