KATE Goodwin, the ACT representative at the national finals of Miss World Australia 2014, is hosting a “Variety Shopping Extravaganza” fundraising event at the Hellenic Club, Woden, on July 18 2014.She says it will feature local businesses coming together under the same roof to provide a night of shopping “plenty of entertainment for all ages”.
The Miss World pageant uses the slogan “Beauty with a Purpose” and raises funds and awareness for children’s charities.
“I was awarded the ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ title for ACT in the preliminary rounds due to my outstanding fundraising efforts for Variety – the children’s charity, which fast tracked me to the national finals.
“Nationals will be held at the end of July in the Hunter Valley, where I will compete in sections including talent, fitness, Q&A, runway and photoshoots.”
Entry to the “Variety Shopping Extravaganza” is $15, at the door, and include a glass of bubbly. There will be raffles and door prizes and the first 200 guests will receive a show bag worth hundreds of dollars. It runs from 6pm to 9.30pm.
