WVU Children’s Hospital to host breakfast with Miss America

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Every year, girls across the country tune in to see the glitz and glamour of the Miss America competition. On June 20, girls in the Morgantown area will have the opportunity for a more personal experience: breakfast with Miss America 2009, Katie Stam.

West Virginia University Children’s Hospital and the Miss America Organization are teaming up to host Breakfast with Miss America at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 20, at 154 Benton Grove Road, in Morgantown’s Goshen Grove Estates.

Each guest will have breakfast with Miss America and the opportunity to take a picture with her. They’ll also receive a ticket to the Miss West Virginia 2009 Pageant plus a chance to win a limo ride to the pageant. One guest will be selected for a private lunch with the newly crowned Miss West Virginia and a visit to the school of the guest’s choice.

Katie Stam, 22, was crowned Miss America 2009 in January. As Miss America, the Indiana-native is the National Goodwill Ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network. There are more than 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals worldwide. WVU Children’s Hospital is the only one in West Virginia.

Since her crowning, Stam has participated in several Children’s Miracle Network events promoting her platform of community service and involvement. In February, she participated in the IHOP National Pancake Day in Los Angeles. In March, she attended the Children’s Miracle Network Champions Celebration in Orlando and the Champions Across America event in Washington, D.C. She has also visited children’s hospitals in Philadelphia, Indianapolis and Memphis. Most recently, she attended the Children’s Miracle Network Golf Tournament in Dayton, Ohio.

Tickets for “Breakfast with Miss America” are $50 each and must be ordered by June 15. For more details on the event or to purchase tickets, call WVU Children’s Hospital at 304-598-4346.
