Children's Miracle Network Hospital Visit

What a special morning! I had the chance today to bring my platform and my love of the incredible children at CMNH together! We had a fantastic time making cards to send to soldiers while sharing tons of laughs! I signed autographs, took pictures, and helped color and design cards! I even got to meet the famous therapy dog Abby and introduce her to a few children!

Albany Children's Hospital Radiothon

Another day volunteering with fellow sister queens! We had such a BLAST at the Children's Miracle Network Hospital Radiothon in Albany today! Working alongside the sisterhood is part of what makes this organization so special! Not only did we get to spend the afternoon with some of our class but we also got to help more individuals become miracle makers by manning the phones! I love every radiothon I do just a little bit more, so here's to the next one!

Drug Crisis in Our Backyard

This morning I helped to stop the stigma against drug and alcohol addiction! The organization is run by a group of selfless individuals who have lost family members and/or friends to addiction. We walked almost 4 miles on the Walkway Over the Hudson, which is a gorgeous part of the community! Thanks to all who joined in and helped raise funds for this awesome message and nonprofit!

Princess Tea Party

Such a wonderful event for a fantastic cause! We worked hard (or as hard as princesses do) to raise quite a bit of money for Children's Miracle Network today! All the proceeds will go to the Maria Fareri CMN Hospital right in my area! I got to be Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and had a blast with crown making, face painting, pictures, tea, and snacks! Just am awesome time working with a number of different organizations!

Miss America Serves Day

The girls in New York were busy today! We were spread out at a variety of events across the state doing service in a number of different ways! I chose to volunteer with some of the upstate and central state girls at our local regional food bank! We had a blast spending time together sorting and packing food to be sent off to families in need! The pictures speak for themselves!

Workshop weekend!

What a whirlwind weekend! Workshop was an amazing experience to say the least. Not only was the board extremely helpful and informative about the approaching week of Miss New York but all of the class of 2017 was united for a day of photos, meetings, fittings, and rehearsals! After learning about our requirements and schedules we had the chance to fit our official swimsuits for Miss New York made by the amazing Kandice Pelletier, a former Miss New York and Radio City Rockette! Then we got our official opening number dresses from the FABULOUS sponsor Coco Chateau! The Sherri Hill dress is navy blue and I can't wait for everyone to see it at Miss New York! Finally we ended our day with a few hours of rehearsal for our opening number! Our choreographer, Kimberly Cantoni is super!  In case you weren't excited yet, you should be now because it is going to be a blast! Looking forward to sharing the stage with all the girls of 2017 and especially the blue group, because my contestant number is #7!!!
