FMSU Update2020 FMSU Candidates had numerous Filipino Delicacy Fundraisers e very 3-4 weeks. Orders were picked up in front of Lynns Oriental Store and distributed throughout the community. This was their way of pageant contestants sharing Filipino delicacies and spreading Filipino treats. This raised money for the upcoming Pageant. A portion of the donations are earmarked for Bantay Bata 163 which helps disadvantaged children in the Philippines. Thank you for your continuous support of our BBFAA candidates. UPDATE ON 2020 FMSU “Pageant for a Cause” FIRST COUNTING WINNERS announced last May 15, 2020. Miss Tallahassee Joella Mosley and Princess Melissa Foster won top fundraiser in their categories. Second and Third countings will be announced soon. Thank you for all your support for Team Tallahassee Candidates. Recently, Riza Solis – FMSU Pageant Coordinator, had conducted a survey among candidates on the proposal to have a virtual pageant. It was suggested to have a Virtual Pageant/Coronation based on the success of the Miss Earth Philippines Virtual Pageant. The outcome of the survey: Candidates voted for a live competition like previous years. There will be no virtual coronation. The previous coronation date of August 1, 2020 has been POSTPONED to a later date. Due to the unpredictable nature of Covid-19. They will wait until mass gathering are allowed in Florida to hold a coronation. Pageant officials will make sure that the candidates will have enough time before that yet-to-be-determined date. For now, contestants will wait patiently and do all that we can to ensure everyone’s safety. Let us hope and pray that this pandemic will end soon. God bless and be safe. Lally Mosley FMSU Team Tallahassee Pageant Coordinator
