Miss Massachusetts Jillian Zucco is going to compete at Miss America, join her at the send off party on August 11th which is also a fundraiser.

Jillian's family initially wanted to throw her this party as a send off but Jillian, being the wonderful person she is, is donating a portion of the proceeds to her cause at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and the Miss America Program.

The event is being hosted at the Century House in Acushnet. There will be hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, an auction table, live entertainment, and dancing.

Tickets are on sale for $25 a piece and can be bought at MissMass.org and RSVP's can be made by e-mailing dancgym@aol.com.

Jillian Zucco will be leaving August 29th for New Jersey where she will be doing her preliminary interviews and dinners with Miss America sponsors and filming rehearsals.
