"Often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." Lou Buscaglia
We have adapted this quotation as the basis of our organization and focus of our titleholder. We can make a difference, even if in a small way. It is our directive to give young ladies in our region an opportunity to do something unique and memorable while introducing them to a wonderful charity that benefits from our time and efforts. The opportunity to participate in a pageant is a memorable experience for a young lady, and the opportunity to incorporate a charity flavour is a unique and fulfilling achievement.
The Miss Teen Ontario East Pageant is a charity-based, not-for-profit organization comprised of a group of VOLUNTEER directors. We are proud to be an official fund raising and Awareness event for the CANDLELIGHTERS.
