THE annual Mother and Daughter Pageant takes place at the National Cultural Centre on the Saturday, May 12.
This year’s pageant is being held under the theme “Love’s Kaleidoscope” and has brought together 44 contestants in the three categories in Mother and Daughter pairs.
The Pageant is organised by Supa Stylistics Promotions, which is headed by Dr. Sulan Fung-Browne and her mother, Mrs. Ingrid Fung.
From its inception, the pageant has guided the light on the bond between mothers and their daughters and that is one of the reasons behind its success over the past two and half decades. This year’s programme will be packed with lots of entertainment by some of our best artistes and of course the audience will be dazzled by the creativity of the mothers and daughters as they compete in the junior, middle and senior categories of the show.
This year’s pageant will also focus on the scourge of domestic violence in Guyana. A special tribute will be paid to Reona Payne who was killed in April. Her reputed husband is before the courts for her death.
Reona is a past contestant of the Mother and Daughter pageant, so, according to the pageant organisers, the tragedy of her demise has left the team heartbroken, but strong to continue to raise awareness on the problem.
