More than one hundred contestants attended The Arkansas Angels Pageant

More than 100 were contestants in the event, several from Faulkner County. However, five states had contestants. One family, the Phillip Ventura family, said they drove 300 miles from Texas allowing their 5 year old daughter Audrey Rose to participate. Two set of grandparents also drove—one driving more than 400 miles.
“We just wanted Audrey Rose to be able to do this,” Phillip Ventura said. “This is the first pageant that we have found for her. She’s loved it.  It has just been wonderful.”
Contestants walked on stage, they rode in wheelchairs and they were carried. They smiled, they cried tears of joy and so did the audience. Boxes of tissue were available on every isle.
