Positive Message! Jenni From "Flipping Out" To Host Miss You Can Do It Pageant
After two years of judging and three years of hosting the Miss You Can Do It Pageant, actress and longtime supporter Jenni Pulos returns to this beloved event, serving once again as the host of this year’s empowering pageant.
Held since 2004, the Miss You Can Do It Pageant provides a supportive and inspiring evening for women and girls with special needs and challenges. On July 22, 2017, contestants will gather at the Adler Theater in Davenport, Iowa, to experience the challenge and compete for the crown.
Jenni Pulos, who is best known for her hit Bravo TV show "Flipping Out," has been a big part of this non-profit event for five years, and is thrilled to assume the role of host for this year’s pageant. The pageant and the non-profit organization hold a very special place in her heart, as both a mother and an advocate for women’s rights. Pulos will lead an evening of smiles, laughter and fun for each contestant and their families.
Founded in 2004 by Abby Curran, who won the Miss Iowa USA 2008 pageant, the Miss You Can Do It Foundation is designed to instill confidence in the minds of women and girls with challenges and/or special needs. It's a celebration of feminine strength and resiliency, created to remind them that anything is possible – if you just believe.
Curran, who has Cerebral Palsy herself, was the first Miss Iowa USA contestant and winner with a physical disability. Before her journey, she recalled feeling as if she shouldn’t even enter the competition, but after being inspired by the words of former Miss America Shirley Cothran Barret, who simply said, “I’ll try,” she jumped right in. The Miss You Can Do It Foundation that Curran spearheads works to show girls of all ages exactly what it suggests, that they, too, can do it.
The pageant begins at 5 p.m. CST at the Adler Theater in Davenport, Iowa.
