Namiss girls raise money for Susan B Komen

Remember a few weeks ago the fun picture of the two girls holding up the big check for the Susan G Komen foundation? I've got a couple more pictures of the two young ladies who did the fund raiser, Victoria Knight - 2009 NAMiss Washington Teen Queen and Kennedy Miller - 2005 NAMiss Washington Princess Queen.

Victoria and Kennedy co-founded a program called Queens for a Cure. (cute title!) The event they held raised $10,111.07 for Susan G Komen for a cure. Victoria and Kennedy had set a goal of $5,000.00 and said "we were overwhelmed when we saw the final amount raised. We had survivor's at the event and they were all recognized and given a pink rose. It was so moving to see the crowd of people with tears in their eyes when the Big Check was brought out with the total."

One Journalist at the event said, "The money is going to the Susan G. Komen for the cure. When the announcement was made I stood up and clapped along with the rest of the audience and my eyes filled with tears. All of this love and support for women they've never met -- hoping someday there will be a cure. That is my hope, too. "Michelle Millman-KIRO News.

National American Miss and Washington are so proud of these young ladies. I'll keep you posted on their next event!
