The Miss Texas World America Organization has selected McAllen to host its 2019 Miss Texas World America and Miss Texas Teen World America Double Pageant. The event will be held August 2 & 3, 2019 at the McAllen Convention Center, and is expected to have approximately 500 attendees (including state-wide participants and audience); generating an estimated $262,500 for local businesses.
“We are delighted the Miss Texas World America Organization chose McAllen for its 2019 Double Pageant, and we are especially grateful to Della Fay Perez- Texas State Director,” said Lisa Ramirez, Convention Sales Manager at Visit McAllen. “Attracting events like this are conceivable with buy-in from local representatives.”
The winners of the Miss Texas World America and Miss Texas Teen World America will advance to the National Pageant in Las Vegas this September 2019. The National winner of the Miss competition will move on to Miss World. The Miss World final show will be in Thailand in December 2019 where the reigning Miss World, Vanessa Ponce de León, will pass the crown on to the 69th Miss World.
“Since 1951 Miss World has inspired and empowered thousands of young women to use their talents to support the poor, sick and disadvantaged through its ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ charitable program,” said Della Fay Perez- Texas State Director of the Miss Texas World America Organization. “The longest-running international pageant, Miss World is not just a traditional beauty pageant, but rather a platform for women from across the globe to raise awareness and funds in aid of humanitarian causes. The organization prides itself on its philanthropic focus with millions of dollars being raised for good causes every year.”
