Mrs. Los Alamos, Bernadette Lauritzen is heading into her final stretch for the Mrs. New Mexico competition on June 20.
Her final attempt at fundraising concludes with a bake sale and raffle during the Chamberfest activities on June 13.
“I really enjoy fundraising for other entities,” Lauritzen said, “but I’ll be happy to see the fundraising for myself come to an end.”
Lauritzen has had to raise funds to cover nearly $900 in entry fee pageant expenses.
Lauritzen also needed to come up with the sponsorship of an advertisement in the Mrs. New Mexico catalog, which was covered by the MainStreet program for the promotion of The Next Big Idea, July 18. The advertisement will give the science-related community event statewide recognition.
“I’ve been really lucky to have family, friends, neighbors and school staff willing to support my efforts by baking for the many bake sales I’ve held,” Lauritzen said. The sales were held at Los Alamos National Bank and the Family YMCA.
The fundraising efforts don’t end with bake sales, as Lauritzen is also selling raffle tickets.
A $5 ticket provides a chance to win cookies delivered once a month for year. A $25 raffle ticket will net someone a homemade dinner delivered right to their door.
