Crowns & Gowns Ball

June 15, 2018 served as day that will always be remembered. 500 guests gathered to pay tribute to a Minnesota icon, Miss America 1948, BeBe Shopp. 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 forever Miss Minnesota's and Outstanding Teens.

Event Emcees, Kevin Doran and Natalie Davis, led the audience through a delightful program which consisted of a welcome from Cara Mund, Miss America 2018, a keynote address from Gretchen Carlson, Miss America 1989, a performance by Dorothy Benham, Miss America 1977, and an impactful reflection from BeBe Shopp. The evening culminated with the incredible surprise crowning of BeBe Shopp, a moment that was cherished by all.
