Watch out, Ms. Georgia. Ms. Senior Athens is coming!
This Saturday, the Athens Community Council on Aging is hosting the Ms. Senior Athens Pageant. The pageant will celebrate the gift of aging and express how proud the contestants are of their growth and maturity.
ZoomWorks Photography had the wonderful opportunity to donate our talents by providing hair and make-up styling for these lovely ladies and photographing their headshots for the pageant. These women certainly embody what it means to age gracefully.
The contestants for the pageant include: (From top left) Rubielen Norris, Susan Wiley, Judy Sloan, Carol Shelnutt, Elizabeth Nevil, Annette Barfield, Consie Ellington, Bobbie McKeller, Jane Parrick, Wilma Jeffers, Helen DeLong, Catherine Harden
Kicking off the event at 6 p.m., there will be a cocktail hour and silent auction. The pageant includes two judging categories: personal style and evening wear. During the pageant, guests will enjoy a dinner buffet and live music by Kyshona Armstrong.
The winner of the pageant will be awarded a $500 cash prize, a $100 gift certificate to Belk, and an engraved crystal bowl provided by JWR Jewelers with fresh flowers from Flowers, Inc. The newly crowned Ms. Senior Athens will also represent Athens and the surrounding community over the next year at special events in partnership with the Athens Convention and Visitors Bureau.
All proceeds from the event support the Athens Community Council on Aging and its diverse programming, which includes Meals on Wheels, Adult Day Health Care and Senior Center.
