TFTJ Bulletin – As heard in PageantCast 073

Congratulations:
While the world is focused on Mexico City for the 2007 Miss Universe Pageant, the nation of China has held the first national pageant selection for the 2008 pageant. 24-year old Ziya Wei was crowned Miss China Universe 2008, on Friday May 18, 2007.
Military wife Tiffany Sawyer is the new Mrs. Colorado America 2007.

Mrs. Texas United States was selected in Frisco, Texas and Megan Zucaro who competed as Mrs. Belton won the state title. Megan was 1st runner-up in the 2006 pageant. The most touching award was the TFTJ.com Internet People’s Choice Award that was presented to Mrs. Frisco, Sheila Elliott. Sheila garnered over 25% of over 3,600 votes (the most successful poll on TFTJ.com). The truly touching part is that Sheila wanted to win this award on behalf of her son Colby who was born missing the left side of his heart and by the age of 2, had had five open heart surgeries. Sheila reports he is doing great, but will have a heart transplant at some point. Congratulations Sheila, and Colby on their TFTJ.com People’s Choice Award. You’re an inspiration!

Crown is platform for Mrs. Michigan

Pageant winner pitches for funds to fight son’s disorder
Monday, May 28, 2007

BY GEOFF LARCOM

News Staff Reporter

Stephanie Hunt was incredulous when she received an invitation several years ago to compete in a beauty pageant for married women.

Sure, she had competed in beauty and talent pageants as a teenager. They even helped pay her way through college.

But she thought those days were behind her. She was an adult with a family, a job and a young son suffering from a rare disorder.

From Beauties of America Blog: WI BOA 2007 CROWNING CEREMONY

Sunday, May 20, 2007

The Wisconsin Beauties of America 2007 Crowning Ceremony was held on Sunday, May 20 in beautiful Eau Claire, WI at The Plaza Hotel and Suites.

Jessika Kahlhamer, the Wisconsin Beauties of America State Director, organized an absolutely fabulous crowning ceremony, entitled “Mardi Gras Magic”. There was plenty of Royalty on hand, with National Title Holders Katie Hanacik (America’s Teen) and Jo-Anna Yvorchuk (America’s 50’s) sharing emcee duties with State Title Holder, Michele Peters (2006 WI 30’s).

Congratulations to the 2007 Wisconsin delegates, Debra Jakowicz, Wisconsin’s 40’s and Maria Belflower, Wisconsin’s 50’s. We are thrilled to have them as members of the BOA “family”!

These lovely ladies wowed us with their “opening number” Mardi Gras outfits, complete with Mardi Gras masks! The crowning ceremony continued with both Debra and Maria modeling their interview outfits and answering challenging questions while on stage.

The “pageant” continued with Debra and Maria modeling their fitness wear and concluded with the evening gown portion of the event.
Debra Jakowicz was crowned 2007 Wisconsin’s 40’s by Michele Peters, 2006 Wisconsin’s 30’s and Maria Belflower was crowned by Katie Hanacik, 2006 Beauties of America Teen National Titleholder. Jo-Anna had the delightful honor of being the emcee during this portion of the crowning ceremony.

Jo-Anna was not only thrilled to meet the new delegates, but to be reunited with Katie Hanacik and Michele Peters. With the Beauties of America Pageant, women meet and become friends for life. It was obvious that Katie, Michele and Jo-Anna were so happy to be together once again and chat as “old friends” do.

Special thanks to Jessika’s parents, Cindy and Jim, for attending the ceremony and helping with set up/tear down and to Dr. Bob and Dr. Bill for being such great photographers and company throughout the ceremony.

A wonderful time was had by all in attendance.
