Like the 19 other teens who were presented with her, Baylee Mozjesik took the traditional sweeping deep bow on the stage at the Arlington Convention Center at Saturday’s Cinderella Charity Ball, Arlington’s oldest continuing social and charitable event.What Mozjesik didn’t know was that she would soon be crowned Miss Cinderella 2013, a title she earned by raising $71,061 during a seven-week campaign in which the 20 candidates solicit friends, family and local businesses for their support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Arlington.Mozjesik, 16, is the daughter of Karol-Ann and Quentin Spitzer and Thomas Mozjesik and a junior at Lamar High School.This year’s candidates collectively raised $409,160, slightly less than the nearly $471,000 last year’s ball raised. The event is sponsored by the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Arlington Boys & Girls Clubs. Auxiliary officials say the average fundraising amount over the past five years is $407,000.A spotlight shone on each teen as she descended a staircase to receive flowers from her escort and was introduced by master of ceremonies Jimmy Bennett, an Arlington City Council member. Bennett entertained the audience with each girl’s bio as she was escorted by her dad down a runway to the main stage where each made the traditional deep curtsy to end her presentation.A seated dinner preceded the presentation with dancing to a live band following the announcements. About 1,100 guests attended the ball.Co-chairing the event were Cristy Duke and Andrea Proctor, who said that the ball has earned more than $8.4 million since it began in 1961, with the proceeds going to fund youth programs, facility equipment, capital improvements and operating expenses for the nonprofit agency.“We are so proud of this year's candidates. Each one has worked hard through their campaign for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Arlington, giving freely of their time and talents to better the lives of children in their community,” Duke said.Candidates must be sophomores or juniors and be involved in school or community activities. A selection committee reviews applications, and candidates are announced eight weeks before the ball.First runner-up was Kennedy Franklin, the daughter of Tammy and Kirk Franklin, the gospel singer, and a sophomore at The Oakridge School.Second runner-up was Kylie Wade, the daughter of Kay and Jim Wade and a junior at Lamar High School. Third runner-up was Susannah Metzger, daughter of Susan and Rob Metzger a Martin High School junior.Arlington High School junior Kristen Pirkey was fourth runner-up. She is the daughter of Elizabeth and Mack Pirkey.In a separate competition, three candidates were awarded college scholarships based on scholastic achievement, extracurricular involvement and letters of recommendation.Wade won the Catherine Lautzenheiser Memorial Scholarship of $1,500; Hullender won a $1,000 award; and Darden received a $750 scholarship.A new award was presented for the first time to honor a longstanding member of the Ladies’ Auxiliary, the late Carol Zimmer. Zimmer, who died last month, had three daughters who were Cinderella candidates, with daughter Nicky winning the title in 1997.“The purpose of this award is to honor all those things for which we will remember Carol: her enthusiasm, kind heart and generous spirit. A true friend to all,” said Duke.Duke and Proctor explained that the criteria for the new award were based upon the following qualities that, individually, form an acronym spelling Zimmer’s first name: C: Compassionate; A: Ability to bring people together; R: Radiant spirit; O: Overwhelming zest for life; L: Love of selfless service.Erin Hibbs, daughter of Mary and John Hibbs and a junior at Martin High School, was named the winner of the award, which was decided by candidate vote along with input from select members of the Cinderella committee and Boys & Girls Clubs board. Zimmer’s husband, Steve, along with their daughter and son-in-law, Suzy and Rob Smith, attended the ball.Other candidates this year were Hannah Baumgartner, Hayley Boylan, Sydney Cerza, Libby Coomer, Emily Eichenauer, Andee Gentry, Kendall Grasty, Kyndall Hunt, Caitlin McClintock, Nicole Price, Christine Smith, and McKynzie Zick.
