The Queen Team - fundraiser for the National Kidney Foundation

Joy Araujo, your 2006 National American Miss Indiana Teen Queen, has quite a story. She endured a kidney transplant at age 17 after nearly a decade of debilitating chronic kidney disease. Joy and her sister have launched the "Queen Team" project to help others who are suffering.

Here is some information about the upcoming event that Joy e-mailed to me: "The Queen Team, formed in 2007, is comprised of current and former pageant girls and for the second year is hosting the annual Queen Team fashion show. This year to raise money for The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana, we are having the fashion show at the Conrad Indianapolis in downtown Indy on May 2nd, 2009. We will have an hors d'oeuvres and champagne reception along with a silent auction that begins at 2:00pm, with the actual fashion show to be from 3:00-4:30pm. Tickets will be $25 purchased in advance and $30 at the door."
If you are interested in attending the event or supporting the cause, check out their website: http://www.thequeenteam.org/.
Awesome organization Joy, we are so proud of what you are doing.
