Who says Baby Boomer women can't be beauty queens?
Not the operators of the Ms. Senior California Pageant, which is currently looking for Inland Valley women in their advanced years to compete in a second preliminary pageant slated for March 16.
The two top contestants would then advance to the state-level pageant where they'll each vie for the title of Ms. Senior California in August. The contest would be held at the Cambia at Riverwalk Senior Apartments, which is located at 4725 Sierra Vista in west Riverside.
The pageant is open to all women "who have reached the 'age of elegance' --- 60 and up" for the contest that seeks to elevate them as role models for their peers and younger generations, according to pageant officials.
Senior women interested in participating can call Charlene Tackaberry, the pageant's Inland Valley director, at 951-687-2464 or at Charlene@griffinpropertymanagement.com. All applications must be submitted and approved by Feb. 23.
