MIDDLEBORO —The Burt Wood School of Performing Arts has chosen to join the Miss Massachusetts campaign to raise money for both The Children's Miracle Network and the Miss America Scholarship Fund. Valerie Amaral, Miss Massachusetts 2007, is a teacher and former student at the local performing arts school and will be competing in the Miss America Scholarship Pageant in January of 2008.
For as little as $1, supporters are encouraged to "Buy a Crown" during the afternoon and evening business hours of The Burt Wood School located at 63 Anderson Avenue in Middleboro, Monday through Thursday from 3-7 p.m. Each crown — with words of encouragement to Miss Amaral and the name of the donor — will be displayed in the school lobby.
The crown purchases will help support both causes: The Miss America Scholarship Fund, which made available more than $45 million in scholarship assistance this year through its state and local organizations; and The Children's Miracle Network, an alliance of hospitals for children which provide medical care, life-saving research, and preventative education to help millions of children overcome diseases and injuries of every kind.
For more information about participating in this event, call The Burt Wood School of Performing Arts at 508-946-1071 or visit www.burtwoodschool.com For more information on The Miss America Scholarship Fund, go to www.missamerica.org, and for more information on The Children's Miracle Network, go to www.childrensmiraclenetwork.org.
