Md. Pageant Will Benefit Car Crash Victim

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — Two sisters are coordinating a pageant in Maryland to raise money for a teen injured in a car crash. 

The Miss Hope Eastern Shore Pageant will be held in May. Proceeds from the pageant will go to Courtney Bloxom who is recovering from a single car crash last year that left her in a coma for six weeks. The goal is to raise $19,000 to pay for specialized physical therapy equipment Bloxom needs. 

Miss America 2010, Caressa Cameron of Fredericksburg, Va., will be the pageant’s master of ceremonies. Registration for the event is $75. 

The pageant is the brainchild of Sara and Emily Pettine. Emily Pettine was Miss Teen Maryland 2009 and Teen Miss Delmarva 2011.
