On Sunday, August 5th, I was honoured to have been able to host a high tea “tea party” in support of WE Charity at The Golden Teapot at Glenhyrst Gardens. We had a fantastic turnout, and it was so great to have been able to thank some of my supporters in person and talk to everyone about my journey to Miss Teenage Canada. The venue, The Golden Teapot, could not have been more perfect! Located at Glenhyrst Art Gallery, it was surrounded by beautiful gardens and art pieces. Everyone seemed to love the gorgeous display of food and tea, it was almost too pretty to eat! The flower shaped sandwiches were especially good, if I do say so myself. I mean, I know I went up for seconds maybe once or twice. The hostess, Linda, was also incredibly kind and accommodating throughout the entire event which I was so thankful for. After high stress levels among my parents and I for the last few weeks, getting everything ready and advertising, it was nice to be able to relax and enjoy the tea itself.
We also had a few special guests attend. I was so excited to have the 2017 Six Nations ambassadors attend! I started my pageant journey competing in Miss Preteen Six Nations, later winning Miss Teen Six Nations when I was 13. It was a great year and such an honour to be an ambassador for the community I am proud to call home. Kyleigh, Miss Six Nations, was so kind to organize it so all the ambassadors could make an appearance at the tea. She will also be competing at the CNE Ambassador Pageant the same day as the Miss Teenage Canada finals, which is a funny coincidence. Kyleigh is a fantastic role model and ambassador, and I know she’ll make Six Nations so proud! I’ll be anxiously awaiting the results during finals night, that I know for sure!
Overall, it was a great afternoon, and I can’t express how blessed and thankful I am for everyone’s support. I will be accepting donations for WE Charity until this Saturday, so if you couldn’t make it today and are still interested in donating, feel free to contact me at my Facebook page, Miss Teenage Ontario 2018, or my email, email@example.com. To everyone who took the time to attend my fundraiser or have already donated, THANK YOU! I am so excited to say I have currently raised a little over $2000, and I could not have done it without the support I have been so thankful to have received. There are only 9 days until Miss Teenage Canada begins, and I cannot wait! I have appointments booked all week and I have been very busy with planning, events, practicing, working out, and preparing for university on top of all the pageant stuff! The upcoming weeks will be very busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you so much for reading!
