Chelsey’s Send-Off to Miss USA

Monday night, all the Pageant Patty’s got together at the home of Teri Galvez, Executive Director of the Miss DC Program, for an intimate send off for Chelsey Rodgers to Miss USA.

Chelsey placed 1st Runner-Up for Miss DC twice, but won the Miss DC USA title on her first attempt. She’s chosen her wardrobe (evening gown at right), worked tirelessly with her trainer, and is set to board the plane for Las Vegas this week.

The Miss USA Pageant will be live from the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Vegas on April 11, 2008. As one of her court (I was second runner-up) I was happy to be there to wish her well at her send off and see the progress of her preparation. Good luck, Chelsey!
