Could a Pacific Beach resident be Southern California’s next role model for living a healthy, active lifestyle? Locals will find out on Saturday,
April 28 when Danyelle Nicole Wolf and Erica Adriany compete as two of 25 finalists in the fifth annual Miss iTAN® event at Stingaree in the Gaslamp Quarter downtown.
“I love that iTAN Sun Spray Spa promotes living an active, healthy life-style in addition to maintain a natural-looking tan,” said Wolf. “I feel that my active lifestyle as a top, nationally-rank-ed USA boxer and a personal trainer coincides with what iTAN is promoting through the Miss iTAN Competition.”
Adriany was similarly enthusiastic.
“My hope in competing in the Miss iTAN Competition is that I can promote a healthy, active lifestyle along with an amazing, natural-looking tan,” said Adriany.
The winner of the competition will be the brand ambassador for iTAN Sun Spray Spa® and will promote health and wellness throughout Southern California. Wolf and Adriany made the cut to join the beautiful, bikini-clad ladies on stage by submitting a full-body photo and a statement explaining why they should be Miss iTAN.
Throughout March, about 85 women entered to be finalists, raising more than $425 for YWCA of San Diego County. The finalists exhibited strong virtues of self-empowerment and qualities of independent, healthy and beautiful women.
The competition runs from 8 to 10 p.m. at Stingaree, 454 Sixth Ave.
