A chance to be a guardian angel

(Continued)

Girls ages three to 19 compete in the main pageant and will be split into six age divisions. Contestants will model a party dress, sportswear and an optional Christmas outfit. The talent portion is also optional, but girls must enter it to be eligible for the overall title. There will be a queen and runner-up slots in each competition.

Babies from newborn to 35-months-old can enter one of three baby divisions. Like the big girls, each one must wear a party dress and a sportswear/play outfit. To compete for the supreme overall title, a baby must also enter the Christmas event in which they model something related to the Holiday Season.

Both babies and older girls may also enter a photo contest, provided they bring pictures the day of the pageant. The “V” formation will be used for modeling the babies and the older girls will do a “T” formation.

Boys can compete up to age four and will only compete against other boys.

Raffle tickets will also be on sale at the event for a 39-inch Toshiba flat screen television and a $100 gas card.

Parker said the significance of the money raised from the pageant and raffle is that it allows them to still buy presents for children that are not picked off the tree.

“The kids that don’t get picked off the tree, we go shopping for so they don’t get left out,” she said. “Some trees, like in Fort Worth, if a kid’s not picked off the tree, they don’t get anything. Here they do, because we go shopping for them.”

Signups for Tommy’s Angel Tree are Nov. 21 through Dec. 7 at the Steve Perdue Training Center at 300 South Oak Avenue. For more information about Tommy’s Angel Tree or the pageant, call (940) 325-7105.
