Pageant of Hope Testimonials
"Meet Hope.  She is 16 and she definitely gave me a new perspective on life... This past weekend I got to be a part of an incredible event ran by an incredible organization founded by the family of one of my incredible friends!  It's called The Pageant of Hope.  It is a pageant for girls with special needs and disabilities, and more importantly, BIG DREAMS.  All of the girls in this pageant battle some sort of disability.  Some so minor you wouldn't ever guess they were disabled and others with extreme cases where they may not be able to walk or talk at all.  This organization holds fundraising events all year long so that they can organize a pageant for these beautiful girls.  It helps them build confidence and believe in themselves that they can do so much more.  It gives them courage to overcome their obstacles that most would say may never happen.  I definitely choked up a few times during this day watching their smiles light up the room.  Each girl received an amazing prize, each got a crown, and a handful received honorary titles for winning in their categories.  It was a long crazy day but it was a great one.  I hope I get to see them all again soon."
