It was a first for Bainbridge and Decatur County Saturday, December 8, when the Southern Snowflake Pageant was held at the Kirbo Center.

Event Directors Misty Floyd and Katlin Cone say it was more than just a pageant. They are calling it a ministry, as the purpose of the event was to raise money to help those in foster care have a merry Christmas.

They were very excited to have two celebrity guest judges, Angie and Marah from the former Lifetime show Kim of Queens.

Another famous guest was Santa who came to watch the show and mingle with everyone at the meet and greet.

The categories included entries from Babies through Misses. Winners in each category were: Miss Queen -Cassie Long, Teen Miss Queen – Megan Breeden, Junior Miss Queen – Sadie Cox, Young Miss Queen – Zoey Gunn, Little Miss Queen – Madelyn Meredith, Tiny Miss Queen – Ava Castro, Toddler Miss Queen – Khinslee Worthy, Baby Miss Queen – Zoey Clark.

Profits from the event are earmarked for the Department of Family Children’s Services (DFACS) and Westhaven, to aid foster children.

Donations of toys and clothing were also received from those who attended.
