Crowns & Gowns Ball 2018


PageantLife was thrilled  to be a sponsor of the 2018 Crowns & Gowns Ball. The Crowns & Gowns Ball honored the 70th anniversary of Minnesota's first Miss America BeBe Shop (1948). The evening was edified with music from the Big Band Orchestra under direction of Tom Morris, ballroom dancing from Dancer's Studio in St, Paul, anniversary gowns, and the surprise crowning of BeBe Shopp (see images here).

Also in attendance to help celebrate were Cara Mund, Miss America 2018 (North Dakota); Gretchen Carson, Miss America 1989 & CEO of Miss America Organization (Minnesota); Dorothy Benham, Miss America 1977 (Minnesota); Jackie Mayer, Miss America 1963 (Ohio), many former Miss Minnesota's, and current local candidates.
