QUEENS FOR A CURE
Started in 2009 by then 17 year old Victoria Knight (Puyallup) and her young friend 9 year old Kennedy Miller (Mukilteo), Queens for a Cure is a benefit pageant for Susan G Komen for the Cure. Proceeds from the November 2012 pageant will go to benefit the 2013 Seattle Race for A Cure. Since 2009, this group of young girls and women have raised $39678.69 for the Puget Sound Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. Girls compete for titles in two ways. A Divisional Queen title is given to the best representative during the pageant portion of the event. Girls compete by age division in modeling any length dress and providing an introduction. Optional Supreme titles are awarded for the girls who raise the most money regardless of division. The princess title is awarded to those contestants who raise a minimum $100 donation. The royal princess title is awarded to those contestants who raise a minimum $500 donation. At the 2012 Race for the Cure event in Seattle Queens was honored as the TOP Nonprofit fundraising team and boasted four girls in the coveted TOP 100 club: including founders Knight and Miller as well as Supreme Queen Alexa, all TOP 10 honorees. www.queensforacure.com
