On Saturday, December 28th, the Fire & Ice Charity Ball was held in downtown W-S at Club Therapy. This event is an inaugural collaboration between the Miss North Carolina and Miss South Carolina Scholarships Pageants, with proceeds benefitting each state’s scholarship funds. Both states have 501C3 scholarship accounts that provide scholarships to contestants competing in their state pageants.
Guests arrived in fiery red or icy silvery white cocktail attire to coordinate and compliment the name of the ball—Fire & Ice. Guests were entertained by live music from the following entertainers—The Rose of New Orleans, Mary Jane Ewing (Grammy Recording Artist), The Monk Ewing Jazz Organism, Randy Johnson, Janice Price, and Reggie Buie Trio.
In special attendance were Miss America 2013, Mallory Hagan; Miss North Carolina 2013, Johna Edmonds; and Miss South Carolina 2013, Brooke Mostellar. Also attending were Miss North Carolina’s Outstanding Teen, Emili McPhail; Miss South Carolina’s Outstanding Teen, Brooke Sill; and Miss North Carolina 1988, Lee Beamon.
During the event, the Mayor of Winston-Salem, the Honorable Allen Joines, presented the key to the city to Mallory Hagan. There were also many local titleholders from NC that came to meet the two state queens and former Miss America. Beth Knox, Executive Director, Miss NC Scholarship Pageant and Ashley Byrd, Executive Director
of the Miss SC pageant, were also present for this amazing event.
