What is Rose Pageant? Since 2000, VSA UCI has annually held the Rose Pageant during the Fall quarter. Ladies from Vietnamese Student Associations all over Southern California come together to celebrate all aspects of the Asian-American woman through dance, evening gown, questionnaires, and the Ao Dai segments. A fraction of the proceeds made from the event goes to a charity of our choice that gives back to the Vietnamese community. In addition, Rose Pageant holds performances from talents within the UCI campus and local community including Gio Nam Mua Lan (Southern Wind Lion Dance), Level V Origins Modern Dance, Traditional Dance, and VSAUCI Choir.
Rose Pageant is a philanthropic-based project in which all proceeds will go to charity. This year, we have chosen to donate to SAP-VN's Flood Relief Project, which aims to rebuild life and infrastructure that have been damaged from the floods located in Vietnam's central coast. Specifically, SAP-VN has elected to adopt Tra Leng village in Nam Tra My. Donations will be used to provide scholarships for students who have lost their parents in the flood, along with school uniforms and supplies. Additional donations will be focused on rebuilding infrastructure and repurchasing livestock for villagers. For more information, feel free to navigate through SAP-VN's website linked below.
