Next year marks the third occasion in Las Vegas history that celebrity entertainers, pageant queens, high-ranking elected officials, active duty military, veterans, members of the local media and many more will join together to celebrate Valentine’s Day in V.I.P. style.
Veterans In Politics International, Inc. will host its 3rd bi-annual Valentine’s Day Ball and Gala on Saturday – February 13, 2016 at The Resort on Mt. Charleston.
Rowena Baraan-Krifaton will be our Master of Ceremony and Mark Stevens Chief Judge (former US Marine) and Veterans Court Judge for Henderson Municipal Court will be our key note speaker…
Rowena Baraan-Krifaton may be the youngest of eight children, but she certainly does not come last when it comes to accomplishments. She is, in fact, the apotheosis of the modern-day Renaissance Woman — mother and grandmother of three, wife, volunteer, journalist/writer, founder and president of a charity foundation, philanthropist, socialite, modeling mentor, ambassadress of goodwill, former runway model and beauty queen, and former associate publisher of a Season’s lifestyle magazine.
Rowena has been a model for internationally celebrated fashion designers like Versace, Custom of Madrid, Calvin Klein, as well as Asia’s best, such as Nunu Guevarra, Ito Kirata, and Louie Mamengo, just to name a few. In 1995, Rowena became the first Filipina to win Mrs. Asia Hawaii-World. She has also graced the covers of magazines like Women’s, MOD, Island Lifestyles, and catalogues for several European magazines. She also shares her creative talents as consultant and director of various fashion shows and beauty pageants both in Nevada and California.
Rowena is also a very active leader in the Nevada community, raising funds for different causes, arranging meet and greets, organizing various charity events and silent auctions. Being a fixture of Nevada society and a patroness of the arts and culture of Las Vegas, Rowena has selflessly lent her name and face to some of the most celebrated designer brands, has served as a model for a number of illustrious designers, and has also chaired a number of charitable events, whose primary objectives are the improvement of the quality of lives as well as the cultural upliftment of the people of Nevada.
