The American Heart Association is the official charity of the Mrs. Texas International Pageant. In 2008, the International Pageants joined the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement and each state titleholder will champion heart disease as a national platform in addition to promoting their own platform throughout the year.
Go Red for Women captures the energy, passion and intelligence of women, to work collectively to wipe out heart disease – the No. 1 killer of women.
While 1-in-30 American women die of breast cancer, almost 1-in-3 will die from cardiovascular disease. Our passion is to unite women in this fight. Our involvement in the movement can help save lives. For more information go to www.GoRedForWomen.org.
The current reigning "2009" Mrs. Texas is Bonnie Hubert of The Woodlands, Texas. As Mrs. Texas, Bonnie has dedicated her reign to promoting and recruiting volunteers for "CASA" (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for whom she is the state spokesperson. CASA’s mission is to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children so that they can thrive in safe, permanent homes.
Approximately 500,000 children in the United States are caught up in the court and child welfare maze because they are unable to live safely at home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their life - the one adult who cares only for them.
Approximately 60,000 CASA volunteers serve more than 240,000 abused and neglected children through 954 program offices in the United States. Bonnie’s goal is to help CASA increase the number of child advocates locally, across the state and throughout the nation so that every child who needs a CASA will have one. Bonnie placed 2nd Runner Up at the 2009 Mrs. International Pageant.
Contestants will compete in Personal Interview, Fitness Wear, and Evening Gown. (There is no talent or swimsuit competition and no experience necessary!!!)
