BONSALL – The 2023 Miss Bonsall Pageant Coronation was held Saturday, Sept. 17, at Faith Lutheran Church in Vista. The Miss Bonsall Pageant is a local nonprofit 501c3 organization that promotes community service and mentorship. With two divisions, Miss Teen and Miss, the pageant is the featured fundraiser for a local charity partner. The annual charity of choice is the Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary.
The pageant held a "People's Choice " award contest to benefit the sanctuary, where donors cast $1 per vote for their favorite candidate. The organization also promoted its "Pageanting with Purpose" program, asking that all families, guests, and candidates bring a donation item for the animals. The response was overwhelming and the ladies collected over 450 pounds of donation items, and $635 in "vote" donations, that were presented to the Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary Saturday, Sept. 24.
