Miss'd America Pageant

The Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance and the Schultz-Hill Foundation in association with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa continues its annual pageantry this year in The Event Center at Borgata on Saturday, October 7th at 8PM. Through various fundraising events, this year’s pageant provides the largest cash prize in its 18-year history - $5,000. 

Tickets are $35.00, $65.00, and a $100.00 VIP Ticket, which includes one complimentary drink and admission to the post pageant meet and greet reception. A new $1,200.00 Diamond Tiara (table of eight) ticket level has been added this year, which includes bottle service, a complimentary bottle of champagne, and admission into the post pageant meet and greet reception. The $100 and Diamond Tiara $1,200.00 tickets are only available by calling the group sales office at 609-317-1138.

All other tickets can be purchased at the Borgata Box Office, by calling 866-900-4TIX (4849), or online at www.theborgata.com. A $10.00 reception ticket is available in addition to the $35 and $65 tickets. 

A not-to-be-missed entertainment event, the Miss’d America Pageant started in 1994 at a local Atlantic City club and was created as a spoof of the world-famous Miss America Pageant to raise funds for a local charity. It took place annually on the night after that famous beauty pageant, the joke being that the drag performers ‘missed’ getting into the real pageant at Boardwalk Hall.  It ended in 2005 and was absent from Atlantic City for nearly five years, before making its triumphant return on January 31, 2010 and has grown larger and more spectacular every year since.  

Carson Kressley returns again as the host of this year’s pageant along with the incredible Miss’d America Dancers, Special Musical Guest Frankie Z, Miss’d America 2017 Mimi Imfurst and the Melanie Rice Orchestra.  The show will be once again written and directed by the talented Mark Dahl.

Proceeds from the 2017 Miss’d America Pageant will be equally divided between the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance and the Schultz-Hill Foundation and then split among various charities. Since its inception, the pageant has donated over $300,000.00. For more information on either organization, visit www.acglbt.org or www.schultz-hill.org.
