According to Kelli Mock, this year’s event was in honor of the late Terry Gordon, and all the proceeds from the night went to KIDZ-ETC.
“Our organization helps pay for scholarships for worthy girls at the end of their high school career,” she said. “Our pageants are a great starter for girls who have never competed before, and all of the contestants leave with a trophy and a goody bag.”
Mock went on to thank participants, sponsors and everyone who helped.
“We thank our judges, Mrs. Debi Smith and Dana McManus, our emcee, Jessica Chambless, our tabulators, Timi Horne, Michelle Lewallen and Debbi Gaitten, for making our banners and for decorating our stage. And a special thanks to Town and Country Beauty/Floral Shop for their help, and all of our parents, contestants and sponsors.”
The next pageant in Ludowici is the Miss Christmas Holiday Pageant, which will be at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, in the Long County High School cafeteria.
