Miss Avery’s Angels Virginia Benefit Pageant

July 22 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for our second annual Miss Avery’s Angels Virginia Benefit Pageant.

EVERYTHING from this pageant will be donated to Avery’s Angels Gastroschisis Foundation! Including, entry fee, little angel award, additional photos, and door entries!

Avery’s Angels is a 501(c)3 NonProfit organization that helps families that have been affected by Gastroschisis. Whether its by sending care packages to expecting families, providing gas cards for families that live to far from the NICU, or just over all support Avery’s Angels is there for each person.

Gastroschisis is a birth defect that causes the intestines to protrude from a hole in the abdomen, typically to the right of the umbilical cord. Occasionally, other organs are involved as well. This must be repaired surgically after birth, although surgery is not always possible immediately and depends on many factors including the amount of bowel outside of the body. While approximately 90% of affected infants survive in industrialized nations with proper medical care, there is still a 10% mortality rate due to complications or related defects and infections – even with the best medical care.

This pageant is open to Boys and Girls of all ages with no experience neccessary! Nobody will leave empty handed!
