You never know when you meet someone who is going to have a great impact on your life. In fact, I met this wonderful woman as a contestant for Miss PA International while she was competing for Mrs. PA International in 2010. Little did I know that I would have the blessing to meet someone so inspiring again when I first competed for Miss New Jersey International in 2012. Her name is Dani Micale, and she was giving up her title of Mrs. New Jersey that year.
For the past 8 years, Dani has been hosting a fundraising event for Alzheimer’s in memory of her grandmother. This year, Movin’ for Millie was a disco themed party with raffles, silent auction ideas and lots of disco dance moves!
It was a pleasure to attend the event as Miss New Jersey International! Not only did Dani’s event inspire me for my own Celiac Disease fundraiser, but she also gave me some tips for when I do!
