Miss Vineland Marissa Marchese, Miss New Jersey Junior Teen Madison Stiles, Little Miss Vineland Jaslene Candelaria and their parents spent the day in Washington, DC, meeting with Congressman Jeff Van Drew, touring the U.S. Capitol and visiting the Lincoln Memorial. These three young ladies were honored for their individual projects—assisting homeless individuals, promoting awareness about children living with a mental illness, and supporting children with cancer, respectively. They have spent months working on their personal projects and supporting their community.
Bondy Oil, Laury Heating, Victoria’s Tax Service, Bagel University, Friends of Historic Vineland and Joe Derella sponsored their well-deserved all-expense-paid trip. Congratulations, Marissa, Madison and Jaslene. You are truly role models for our youth.
