The event will include live music, raffles, and a silent auction, all to benefit Farmington S.A.F.E. (Suicide Awareness for Everyone) and the Dolores Riley Educational Grants awarded to Miss Farmington and her court.

“It’s just a great time and a multitude of fun for families,” newly appointed pageant executive director Pam Green told Farmington officials Monday. “We really want to get our community involved in more of these activities.”

The competition is open to the public, with a $10 entry fee. Entry forms are available at John Cowley & Sons, 33338 Grand River. Admission to the March 4 event is a donation at the door.
