Angel was giving up her crown as Tiny Miss Colonial Days (she's a riot)
Tiny Miss Colonial Days, Sarah, when her name was called!
Jaidah, the newly crowned Mini Miss Colonial Days, and I!
Hanging out before interview with the Miss Contestants
After the interviews we headed over to the tent for the Tiny, Teen, and Miss Categories. All of the girls did great!
With all of the Colonial Day's Queens!
On Saturday, all of the contestants met up for the annual Colonial Days Parade. I wore the same exact gown that I wore the day I won my crown (super pumped that it still fit)!!!
Following the parade, I invited all of the contestants to join me at Wal-Mart to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. These girls were phenomenal; There was no getting out of the store without donating! After only four hours of fundraising, we raised $534 for CMN...what a team!
Cindy, a manager at Wal-Mart that was very accommodating!! THANK YOU!!!
With my all star fund raiser girls!I would like to thank Pilar Miller and Jane Eikov for all of the work that they did this weekend for the pageant. They are both such wonderful volunteers in the FL region and our volunteers can never be thanked enough!
