Miss Perham Scholarship program to host two fundraisers April 26

The Miss Perham Scholarship Program will host two fundraisers – a 5k run/walk and Daddy/Daughter Dance – on Saturday, April 26.

The 5k run/walk will be held that morning, to benefit Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, which ties into the national platform of the Miss America Organization. Funds raised will go to Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul.

The event will start and finish on the bike trail near the Arvig Park softball diamonds parking lot. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m., with the race starting at 9. The participation fee for the race will be $20.

Later that evening will be the Daddy/Daughter Dance, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Dads, uncles, grandpas and other male role models are encouraged to bring their daughters to this event.

The dance will be held at the Perham Center for the Arts. There will be a DJ, refreshments, photo backdrop, and other activities.

Admission will be $10 for a couple or $15 per family. Proceeds will directly benefit the scholarship fund.

Miss Perham is currently seeking contestants for its summer pageants. All girls ages 13-23 are eligible.
