We celebrated our 12th and final Pageant of Hope in August of 2022.
We thank you for the opportunity to provide this amazing experience for so many young girls. We will forever cherish the memories! Always remember to share your sparkle wherever you go!
For a girl with special needs or challenges,
hearing that she is being crowned Princess of Hope
is truly a moment that she will never forget!
Our young ladies participate in inspiring workshops and other events that help build self-esteem and confidence that empowers them to dream big and remind them that anything is possible. We encourage our young ladies to not let their disability hinder their goals in life. They will continue their journey with us at the Pageant of Hope, where they will learn the true meaning of a Princess, and take away the core tools for being successful in life. Princesses who attend both workshops will be considered for the Hope Awards, which will be presented at the Pageant of Hope. Candidates will be judged randomly at the workshops based on personal growth.
Meet Our Emcee
Karla Blomberg is the President of Wishes & More, an organization that grants wishes to kids with terminal and life-threatening conditions. They provide the Scholarship of Hope to wish recipients and provide memorial funds to the family of children who pass away without receiving their wish.
Karla is most proud of her family. She and her husband are the proud parents of three children and two grandchildren. What Karla would like to accomplish in the future is to remain active and involved for a very long time with people who do worthwhile and compassionate things for others.
This candidate makes a commitment to herself to move past her disability to accomplish a goal, she felt was truly not possible.
