Tickets for the second annual Miss Asian Las Vegas Pageant will go on sale on Friday, Aug. 8. The event will be held inside The Palazzo Theatre at The Palazzo Las Vegas on Sunday, Sept. 28 at 2 p.m.
The Miss Asian Las Vegas Pageant is the city’s premier beauty and culture pageant for Asian-Americans. The event provides a platform to help build leadership, friendships, community involvement, etiquette and talent for its contestants. In addition to traditional pageant rounds such as interviews, swimwear and evening gowns, the production will feature glamorous displays of Asian culture and costume.
This year, the pageant will have representatives from Teen, Miss, Ms. and Mrs. categories with ages ranging from 15 – 52. A grand prize winner will be chosen in each category as well as a Chinese representative who will go on to compete in the Miss Chinatown USA Pageant.
At last year’s inaugural event, more than 600 guests came together to support the pageant and its contestants. Catherine Ho was crowned the 2013 winner and has advanced to compete in the national Miss Asian America Pageant taking place in San Francisco on Saturday, Aug. 2. Elisa Chan was awarded the Miss Chinese Las Vegas and competed in the Miss Nevada USA Pageant last January where she won Miss Photogenic, Miss Congeniality and Best Evening Gown. Connie Tsang was awarded a place to compete in Miss Chinatown USA Pageant in San Francisco last February.
Ticket prices start at $28 (plus applicable service fees) and can be purchased at any Venetian or Palazzo box office or charge-by-phone at 866.641.7469.
The Miss Asian Las Vegas Organization’s mission is to provide a platform to help build leadership, friendships, community involvement, etiquette, and talent in young Asian American women in Las Vegas. The Pageant will also help to promote each contestant’s unique culture, identity, passions, and personal and humanitarian goals as well as showcase contestants’ overall essence of intellect, leadership and beauty.
