PAGEANT TO BENEFIT EMERGENCY COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY OF FRANKLIN COUNTY
FRANKFORT, KY " The Miss Heart of America Pageant is coming to Franklin County and the entire Capitol City Region! The Capitol City Region's Miss Heart of America Pageant will be held Saturday, August 13, 2011 at 12:00 pm at the Letcher-Lindsey House, located at 200 Washington Street, Frankfort, KY. This pageant is a food drive for the Emergency Community Food Pantry of Franklin County. Each pageant contestant is required to turn in a minimum of 10 non perishable food items. Miss Heart of America is proud to partner with the Emergency Community Food Pantry of Franklin County!
Capitol City Region's Miss Heart of America Pageant is open to all ages. A winner, first, and second runner-up will be awarded in each of the eight age divisions. We will also be awarding a very special title called the "Queen of Hearts". This title is awarded to the contestant who turns in the most non perishable food items. Contestants must pre-register at www.missheartofamerica.com/capitolcityregion.
Attire is casual wear. No pageant dress is needed until the State and National Competitions.
The Miss Heart of America Pageant strives to provide our contestants with the opportunity to have fun, establish lasting friendships, build confidence and self-esteem; all while encouraging them to get involved with organizations in their community that benefit those in need. Our Queens are involved at the local level with organizations such as the Humane Society, March of Dimes, Children's Hospitals, etc.
This pageant system began in 2007 as a food drive for a rescue mission, whose pantry was almost bare. It has now blossomed into a National Pageant Program that has distributed over 100,000 non perishable food items to non- profit organizations, collected toys for Toys for Tots, and collected and distributed much needed items for numerous Women's Centers.
