The Boys & Girls Club of El Camino Real will hold its 19th Annual Steak and Burger Dinner Tuesday, March 20 from 5:30-8:30 pm at the NSU Ballroom on the NSU Campus.
This year’s speaker will be Miss Louisiana 2017, Laryssa Bonacquisti, a double preliminary winner and Top 7 contestant at the Miss America competition. She is a senior at LSU majoring in mass communication- broadcast journalism.
Laryssa travels the state promoting her platform “Team Charlotte: Fighting Pancreatic Cancer,” a platform that is near and dear to her heart following the death of her grandmother.
Laryssa was an intern for Congressman Pete Sessions in Washington DC and plans to pursue a law degree following her undergraduate studies. Her talent, ventriloquism, has allowed her the opportunity to entertain for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and open for Terry Fator and Colt McCoy. She is the official hostess for the State of Louisiana and spokesperson for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, vantage Health Plan, Propane Dealers of Louisiana, and the Louisiana Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.
