Miss Minnesota Connections
"Sister to Sister" is a new Miss Minnesota Alumnae organization made up of all of our former Miss Minnesotas. It will be a vehicle for the former title holders to offer their talents to create a stronger program.
The former Miss Minnesota's started out pageant week with the Prelude to the Crown event hosted by the Radisson Hotel Bloomington by Mall of America. Several former Miss Minnesota's attended to welcome the 22 contestants competing for Miss Minnesota. What a great way to start out Miss Minnesota week! For photos, click on the photo gallery button!
On Friday, June 14, the Sister to Sister organization of Miss Minnesota Alumnae presented the first Crowns and Gowns Gala, at the beautiful new Radisson Blu Hotel at the Mall of America. Highlights of the evening included welcoming our three Miss America’s, Gretchen Carlson, Dorothy Benham and BeBe Shop. Guests were treated to a red carpet arrival, a display of the anniversary Miss Minnesota’s crowns and gowns, and the Miss Minnesota portrait gallery. There was a silent auction and a program featuring all 22 contestants in a “Show Us Your Shoes” parade. Over $10,000 was raised for the Miss Minnesota Scholarship Fund. We hope to see you at the Gala next year!
