Annual Diamonds & Pearls Gala
Our annual Diamonds & Pearls Gala is not just another reason to dress up during pageant weekend! It's an awards gala at which we announce and crown our People's Choice winner and present her with a big check for her non-profit organization of choice; and award a non-contestant individual or organization for their commitment to humanitarian efforts and women's empowerment. The recipient of this honor will be presented with our crystal Diamond Service Award at the gala and be asked to provide a keynote speech about their work, organization and/or provide an inspirational talk about why they chose this path in life and how other women can get involved for the betterment, not just of women's lives, but the betterment of the world in which we live.
We are pleased to announce that this year's Diamond Service Award recipient is Wendy Bird, the founder of Pearls With Purpose. for her humanitarian efforts to improve the lives of women on a global platform.
We can all make an indelible impact on the lives of others with the right direction, commitment and willingness to serve!
