Pageant to benefit Red Cross food pantry

-A A +A

The Miss Heart of America Pageant is coming to Oldham County later this month.
The pageant takes place at 4 p.m. May 21 at Soiree, 1228 Market St. in La Grange. It is a food drive for the American Red Cross.  
Miss Heart of America is proud to partner with the  Oldham County chapter of the American Red Cross.
Each contestant is required to donate at least 10 non-perishable food items.
The pageant is open to all ages.
A winner, first, and second runner-up will be awarded in each of the eight age divisions.
This title is awarded to the contestant who turns in the most non perishable food items.  
Contestants must pre-register at www.missheartofamerica.com/oldhamcountyky.
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.
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.
