'Fashion Moms' get warmup for Whitman Elementary fundraiser

One of the regular events at the North Clairemont campus brings together the school community in an evening of fun and games. Emma's Gut Bucket Band, regular performers for community events at Whitman Elementary, warmed up the crowd with live bluegrass music.

The moms working hard that night will be back in the Whitman cafetorium at 12:30 p.m. this Saturday, Dec.16, as part of the "Whitman Fashion Mom" contest. With a goal of raising funds for a new track and improvements to the school's field, audience members will "purchase votes" for $1 each for their favorite Whitman Fashion Mom.

Contestants, all members of the school's PTA, have an opportunity to be a winner in four categories: Most Votes, Most Fashionable, Best Runway Performance, and Facebook Fashion Mom. All contestants will be given gifts for their participation.

Supporters can purchase a vote for their favorite contestant for $1 each. For each vote purchased you can get a raffle ticket for an opportunity to win a variety of prizes, including the Grand Prize of Four One-Day Hopper Passes to Disneyland California Resort.
