Pageant raises funds for Sisters FAN

Sisters High School students embrace any chance they have to bring the community together - and they did just that in their annual spring pageant last weekend.
"It originally started as a spoof pageant, so it's not overly serious, but it still showcases who these students are," said Jami Lyn Weber, lead teacher coordinator for the pageant.
The goal of the event is to fundraise money for the Sisters Family Access Network (FAN), which works to ensure that children have access to basic needs and services.
The pageant hosted a Pie in the Face, a Pasta Feed, and a Dessert Auction, and raised close to $10,000 for the organization.
"I especially loved the pasta feed, where we got to serve the community, talk, and engage with people," said contestant Anna Landon.
The show this year included 14 contestants and four student coordinators, helping perform a plethora of different entertainment forms - skits, music, videos, and talent-showcasing. The theme was "Outlaws at the Oscars," with each pair of contestants representing a different Hollywood celebrity couple.
"At the end of the day, you have so many students you wouldn't normally see together, but they all want to share things with the community," said contestant Josie Patton.
Patton, a senior, was a student coordinator last year, and a stagehand before that.
"It's such a special long-standing tradition because it brings the school and Sisters community together," Patton said.
