» IN THE AUDIENCE: Miss Cape Coral USA & Teen USA Pageants

The Road to Hollywood ventured to the lovely Oceanside community of Cape Coral for a fun day of pageantry. Set in the lush and lavish Yacht Club the delegates enjoyed the 300+ attendees who were vocal and supportive with signs and cheers. It was fun to see how Lee County has become pageant crazy. We even had both the Mayor and director of The Chamber of Commerce judge and the reviews were outstanding!


Under the direction of Suzi Hosfeld and supported by her hard working volunteers the event felt and looked like a state pageant. That concludes the Envy Pageant Productions circuit of Sarasota, Fort Myers and Cape Coral as it’s now all about preparing for state and being active in their communities. Congratulations to all who made this years season an eventful one.
