Lets ALL Support
Our QUEEN for 2018

Madi Bramsen

Dear Friends of Santa Ynez Valley Youth Recreation,

I am honored and excited to hold the title of Youth Rec Queen for the Santa Ynez Valley this year. The Youth Recreation Organization provides support for so many activates in the valley that I as well as multiple family members, have taken part in. I am enthusiastic to be able to do my part in giving back to the 2018 campaign!
My name is Madisen Bramsen and I am a senior at Santa Ynez Union Valley High School. My parents, as well as multiple aunts, uncles and cousins, attended there as well. Growing up my parents have given my sister Ella and I the opportunity to participate in a diverse lifestyle by allowing us to take part in many activities and hobbies, some of which made possible by Youth Rec. I started dancing at a young age at the Los Olivos Dance Gallery, embracing a love for ballet and other forms of dance. I also played AYSO soccer for many years and was active in trap shooting, rodeo and 4H. Though I have loved all these activities, I discovered a passion for raising and showing pigs through 4H. At the start of high school I began showing jackpot pigs across California along with showing pigs at our county fair. I have experienced immense success with this, including two grand champion titles, a supreme champion banner, and multiple showmanship awards.
I am the oldest daughter of Lars and Rosey Bramsen, both born and raised in the Santa Ynez Valley. My grandparents Poul and Karen Bramsen came to the valley in 1953 from Denmark where they raised my dad Lars and uncles; Steffen, Ben, Kim; each still calling the valley their home. My uncle Steffen has three boys; Brian, Scott and Allan who actively took part in pony baseball throughout their childhood and now with their own children, look forward to participating in Youth Rec sponsored events. My mom, Rosey was also born and raised in Santa Ynez by her parents Eddie and Linda Gonzalez, along with my Uncle Ray. My great grandparents Ray and Martha Gonzalez have lived in the valley forever, my great grandpa being born and raised in Santa Ynez and worked at Pea Soup Anderson's as a young man, then Los Olivos Elementary School as a school bus driver, retired in the early 1990's. My great grandma Martha, born and raised in Santa Barbara, has called Santa Ynez her home since marrying my great grandpa. I am proud to come from a strong family history from Santa Ynez Valley and pride myself on calling the valley my home.
With a list of exciting events and auctions, I invite you to join my family and I, as we help raise money to continue supporting the wonderful valley we all call home. I look forward to meeting you all personally at this year's Santa Ynez Valley Youth Recreation events!
With sincere thanks,
Madi Bramsen 2018 SYVYR Queen
