Miss Rodeo Illinois 2023 Coronation Celebration
After several weeks of planning, my coronation celebration was held at the Quincy Eagles Club in Quincy, IL on January 21, 2023. I was so blessed to have the Quincy Eagles Club host this event. We started the evening with the coronation ceremony emceed by Katie Pfanz and Miss Rodeo Illinois 2022, Charlee Stewart. The moment the crown was placed on my hat for the first time was incredible! I had dreamed of this moment for years and it all started to feel real. We then had dinner that was provided by the Coach House Restaurant. The food was so delicious, and I am so thankful for their support during my big event. The rest of the evening was filled with dancing, a silent auction, and raffle baskets. A huge thank you goes to the many businesses and people that donated items to be a part of the fundraisers. This night would not have been as successful as it was without your generous support and donations! My family also deserves recognition for their support and time put into making this event one I will remember forever. My first outfit of the night was a stunning red dress with fringe across the shoulders altered by Cheryl Perry. My second outfit of the night was inspired by Rosemary Cooper with a show-stopping coyote fur vest. The night had so many wonderful people there to support my year ahead! I don’t think it could have been any more perfect! I am truly blessed with an incredible support system, and I can’t wait to make everyone proud throughout my year!
