Ashley Brehmer, who has grown up in Itasca her whole life, will go on to compete in the widely known Miss Illinois USA pageant for the 2014 title.

Ms. Brehmer is proud to announce that she will be competing for this prestigious title. After the nerve wracking process of preliminary interviews, she was chosen from many qualified applicants throughout the state of Illinois to be an official state finalist. This is the first step on the journey that may lead her to the nationally televised MISS USA pageant as seen on NBC. But before she can go on to chase the crown, she needs your help.

Participating in this pageant requires a sponsorship fee of $1195. Contestants have been encouraged to not only request donations from family, but from local businesses as well. Sponsors will play an integral part in helping this young woman reach her potential and goals. The sponsorship fee pays for all of her expenses at the weekend-long pageant at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago on November 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, 2013. It also pays for all gifts and prizes for the winner and contestants. Most importantly, it pays for the production of the beautiful stage which includes equipment, sets, judges, technicians, and staff. This donation can be drawn from your advertising budget and may be utilized as a tax deduction.

The best part about being Ashley's sponsor is that your business or name will get featured in the official program booklet at the Miss Illinois USA pageant. Talk about great advertising!
