Miss America Prep is underway for Victoria!

Many of you have asked how you can help Victoria in her quest to become the second Miss North Carolina to earn the title of Miss America. Here are a few opportunities she’s asking for YOU to help make her dream come true!

Donate to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in Victoria’s Honor: Throughout her participation in the Miss North Carolina Organization, Victoria has continuously set the bar high in fundraising for CMNH. A four-time Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals “Miracle Maker” Award Recipient, Victoria earned the honor this year at the 2017 Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant in June through raising over $7,000 as Miss Greater Sampson County. As the state ambassador for this incredible cause, Victoria’s goal is to raise $25,000 prior to leaving for Atlantic City. Together, we can make this goal a reality! Share with all your friends on social media and businesses in your community. Let’s help Victoria become the National Miracle Maker!

Contact Jacob Godwin to make your contribution to show the nation how much love and faith we have in Victoria to bring home the Miss America crown to the Tar Heel State!

Purchase Victoria’s official Miss America Support Shirt: T-Shirts to commemorate Victoria’s journey to Miss America will be on sale during her wardrobe showing on 8/27 at the North Carolina Museum of History.
