NAAE has created a 12 hour rocking chair marathon to raise money for PCAN. Rockers age 4 and up are encouraged to bring their rocking chairs to the Mall on Thanksgiving Eve during the mall's "Midnight Madness" event to rock from 10 pm to 10 am while holiday shoppers fill the mall. To raise money, rockers obtain pledges for the hours they rock, and can rock individually, or as part of a rocking team. The chairs must keep moving so relief rockers will be on hand to give breaks and help us Rock On. This Rock A Thon is open to the public and registration and information is available at, all rockers will receive a free "Fashionably Late" t-shirt courtesy of the Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas.

NAAE is a tri state civic pageantry system committed to community service by supporting and promoting the service events and platforms of it's youth members. Every member is required to log service hours to maintain membership. The organization logs more than 100 service hours per year and boasts more than 50 members.
The organization's mission is to teach young women and men that service to others is the reward and that pageantry is the catalyst for reaching out to the community.
