Local models band together for American Heart Association

Somerset —

To be a model, you’ve got to have it all. The eyes. The hair. The figure.
And most importantly — for all of us, in fact — a healthy heart.
That’s why local beauties have volunteered their time and energy toward the Models on Lake Cumberland project.
Hosted by Angela Vaught Photography, partnered with Lake 102.3 Radio, the first-of-it’s-kind endeavor is designed to raise money for a cause near and dear to so many in Pulaski County, the American Heart Association.
As many as 54 different area individuals participated. Interested was overwhelming with a wealth of models — mostly women, but one man as well — hoping to be represented on the “Models on Lake Cumberland” 2014 calendar. 
The calendar features 13 models, each representing a different month, as well as a cover girl. A panel of judges was enlisted to pick the top dozen models to be used on the pages of the calendar, while honor of choosing the cover image was left to fans of Angela Vaught’s photography on Facebook. Each model was sponsored by a local business.
“Participation has been huge,” said Vaught. “I can’t say enough about how wonderful all the models are. It takes a lot of courage.”
Amber Brake — sponsored by Trya De’Sha Photography — won the People’s Choice Award status.
A wrap-up event will be held this weekend at Lee’s Ford Marina. On Saturday, June 29, the celebration of Models on Lake Cumberland and the good cause behind it will take place on the dock, featuring live music — including Stephanie Harris opening for County Line from Louisville — contests, games, the chance for prizes, Karaoke, food, and various other events throughout the day. Festivities start at noon and go until 8 p.m.
As much fun as it sounds, there’s a serious motivation behind it.
