The 28th Annual Mother and Daughter Pageant, which is slated for May 11, is expected to be much bigger and better this year with the introduction of a red carpet show.
The red carpet affair, which is being made possible through a partnership between the organisers of the Mother and Daughter Pageant and MovieTowne Guyana, will be a pre-show to the actual pageant.
The 2019 theme of the event is “The superpower of love” and as such, the event will be celebrating and tailored around “love”.
Twenty-two pairs of mothers and daughters will be competing in three categories: The Always Senior, the Middle category and the Igloo Junior category.
According to Dr Sulan Fung-Browne, who organised the pageant with her mother and founder of the event, Ingrid Fung, the aim this year is to incorporate public interest in pulling off a successful event.
“We always like to orient our show around the theme of love. This year, I see through MovieTowne, a lot of adults are into the superheroes, Avengers and all these other things, so I have decided to talk to the people in the language they know because even though these superheroes, everybody has their own strengths, if you demonstrate love, it will be the best strength ever demonstrated. So the superpower of love is definitely the thing that we want to celebrate” Fung-Browne explained.
Fung-Browne noted that Guyanese will finally have that Oscar/Grammy’s type of experience with the event that the Mother and Daughter Pageant is hoping to pull off.
The new red carpet event and show will be hosted by popular radio and television personalities Feliz Robertson and Gordon Moseley.
“It’s something that you definitely want to be a part of. We have noticed that the patrons dress to death for this show and so we want to put the spotlight on them for a change so before the show will be the red carpet from 6 to 8 where you can come, have your interviews, take your pictures, you hang out a little bit in the lobby and you have a fun time…don’t let us just look at the TV and see the Grammy’s and Oscars and wish that we could’ve been a part of it, you can be a part of it this year” Fung-Browne noted.
Meanwhile, The New Nigel’s Supermarket, another partner, will be handing out massive prizes not only to the contestants, but also to the attendees.
Additionally, Nigel’s Mommy and Me promotion is allowing the Guyanese public to win prizes for their mothers on Mother’s Day.
In that promotion, persons are asked to write about what makes their mother special and to drop those letters in boxes located at their various branches countrywide.
