United Armed Forces Foundation’s Children’s Holiday Party!

This past Saturday I was a special guest at the United Armed Forces Foundation’s Children’s Holiday Party!  I was invited by Dawn Hicks, Mrs. Pennsylvania International 2011, who served in the United States Air Force for 9 years.  The event kicked off with a magic show that was a ton of fun.  Next, there were arts and crafts, a Moonbounce and a DJ to keep the party going.   Julia Pauline, Miss Pennsylvania International and Margo Huffman, Miss Maryland International, danced the day away!   I have to admit that Miss Maryland International, Chardia Murray, Mrs. Maryland International 2011, Sandra Bryan-Grier, and I had a blast in the Moonbounce!  

Different stations were set up throughout the room. Kids could get “Princess Makeovers,” “Rambo Transformations,” or even decorate cupcakes!    The room was alive with fun!  Then, there was a performance by the US Air Force Honor Guard!  They were absolutely amazing!  I can’t twirl a toothbrush; forget a rifle :)  Talk about skill!  It was a privilege to give back to my military community and to do so with my International sister queens. 

Gearing up for the day’s activities!
