The past few weeks have been SLAM-PACKED between schoolwork and pageant prep! I enjoy being busy though, so I feel very fortunate to be doing what I love! The process of getting all of my wardrobe together for Miss Tennessee has always been one of my favorite parts of the preparation process. We've been hard at work shopping around to find just the right things! This past weekend I had the opportunity to come to Nashville and attend a Children's Miracle Network Fundraiser that Johnny D. put on downtown. It was great to serve as a representative of the organization and to witness the outpouring of the community for such a worthy cause. Aubrey Collins, Florida/Georgia Line Band, and Parker Welling were amazing in their performances! I'm getting super excited about my CMN Fundraiser Gala! We stopped by the beautiful Palm Restaurant in downtown Nashville to finalize a few of the details for the event. For those of you who don't know, the gala will take place Saturday, April 24th at The Palm Restaurant in Downtown Nashville. We'll have great food, music, a silent auction, and performances by Erika Grace Powell, Savannah White, Johnny D, and myself! We're looking forward to a GREAT event and raising some good funds for CMN! For those interested in attending, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 615.400.4892. I hope to see a lot of you out there!!! This coming weekend I'll be back in Nashville to tie up some final preparations for the gala and to do some more pageant prep. I'm also really looking forward to a birthday trip to New York City in Early May! I'll be organizing a small team for the New York City AIDS Walk on May 16th...if you're in the NYC area I'd love to have you join my team! Stay tuned for more details!!!
