What is Rose Pageant? Since 2000, VSA UCI has annually held the Rose Pageant during the Fall quarter. Ladies from Vietnamese Student Associations all over Southern California come together to celebrate all aspects of the Asian-American woman through dance, evening gown, questionnaires, and the Ao Dai segments. A fraction of the proceeds made from the event goes to a charity of our choice that gives back to the Vietnamese community. In addition, Rose Pageant holds performances from talents within the UCI campus and local community including Gio Nam Mua Lan (Southern Wind Lion Dance), Level 5 Modern Dance, Traditional Dance, and VSAUCI Choir.
Profits for the 2017 Rose Pageant will benefit the Pacific Links Foundation, a humanitarian organization that helps build communities in Vietnam and empowers youth to end human trafficking. Website: http://www.pacificlinks.org
