Nassau, Bahamas -
Just days before she will be off to London to represent The Bahamas
at the Miss World Beauty Pageant, Sasha Joyce, Miss World Bahamas, attended
a special function for the athletes of Special Olympics. They
were celebrating EKS Day (in honor of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder
of the Special Olympics Movement) as guest of the U S Ambassador, Hon.
Ever since winning the Miss
World Bahamas title in May, Sasha has adopted Special Olympics, and
has attended all of their events. Most recently, she organized
a fund raising souse-out with all proceeds going to Special Olympics.
The athletes were again thrilled
to see their queen, and encouraged her to win, as they did recently
at the Special Olympics World Games in Athens this summer. The
Directors of the Movement were truly impressed with the time and effort
the queen has taken to support Special Olympics, and felt proud to have
been selected to be her favorite charity.
