Former Miss Chios Pageant







March 2010




It is my distinct honor to welcome all the young ladies ages 16 to 26 to participate in the Miss Chios 2010 Pageant. As we all know, the MISS CHIOS Pageant is one of the special events hosted by Panchiaki Korais Society for more than thirty years. It will be held at the SAND CASTLE of Long Island, on Sunday, Aprill 11th 2010 at 5:30 pm. On this special night a lucky, as well as beautiful and intelligent young Chian lady will be selected to win the title of Miss Chios 2010.


I have many memorable experiences as Miss Chios which I will cherish for life. It was a great honor for me as Miss Chios to March down 5th Avenue at the Greek Independence Day Parade, participate in the Ronald MacDonald marathon, attend the Eleftheria celebration (Chios Independence) and present a $2,500 check on behalf of Korais to the children of special needs in Chios.


I am thankful to Panchiaki Korais Society for giving me this opportunity and hope to visit Chios again many times over. I realize and appreciate Korais educational and philanthropic goals in supporting Greek culture, our schools and our youth.


This year the winner of the pageant will have a choice of selecting a $1,500 scholarship towards college expenses or a roundtrip ticket to Chios, Greece compliments of Korais Society and a week stay at the Chandris Hotel.


The first runner up will receive $300, the second runner up $200 and all other participants $100. In addition all applicants will be refunded their ticket to our Annual Dinner Dance.


So, please take a few minutes of your time to fill out the attached application and mail it to the Panchiaki Korais Society, Inc. at: 43-15 202nd Street, Bayside, NY 11361, or send it via e-mail at koraisny @ verizon.net. You may also bring the application with you the night of the pageant, but I strongly suggest that you mail it in advance before April 11th 2010. You never know, you might be the lucky girl of the night. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Mrs. Elisavet Tzoumaka at (718) 224-4846 or at (917) 209-3330.


Thank you and good luck to all of you!
