We had the beautiful NEW Miss New Jersey, Kaitlyn Schoeffel from Egg Harbor Township, in our studio last week, when she mentioned how she would love some help in raising money for Miss America's Partnership with Children's Miracle Network!

The Miss America Organization has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to raise funds and awareness for children’s hospitals throughout the United States.

Contestants competing in Miss America-sponsored pageants are expected to raise donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Miss America Scholarship Fund as a part of their service requirement.

In addition, each new Miss America becomes the goodwill ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, speaking on behalf of kids treated at children’s hospitals and raising awareness around the country. It’s just another way the Miss America Organization helps young women leave a legacy of service, scholarship, and support.

How can YOU help? 

Well, join us! We'll be with Miss NJ at Naomi's Cafe on Tilton Road in Northfield THIS FRIDAY for another one of our Selfie Stops. But with a special twist and with a special cause.

Joe and Rachel will be broadcasting LIVE from there, starting at 7am, where you can come and take selfies with US (free of charge). And then, Miss NJ will be joining our selfie stop from 11am-12am, where you can take a selfie/picture with her with a $5 donation to benefit the Children's Miracle Network, to help raise money for the cause!

Join us for some selfies, great food, great fun, and a great cause this Friday with Miss New Jersey!
