    Faye's Favorite Friends is a 501(c)-3 non-profit organization where the mission is to show individuals with Special Needs that they are loved and appreciated for who they are! One way we do that is through our Born Beautiful Special Needs Pageants! This event is more than just a pageant... It is a celebration of your amazing children and your family! The night starts off with a red carpet entrance, followed by the chance for participants to get their hair and makeup done, then the pageant itself and then crowing ceremony-- where every participant has their crowning moment-- and the night ends with a dance party!
