Guests viewed a video during the pageant that highlighted the services that the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation provides to the Houston community and beyond:
HRRF guests & friends were very proud to help to launch the first Miss Venezuela Houston 2015 beauty pageant on Sunday.
The objective of this event came from the hope of the Venezuelan community living in the city of Houston to expand and preserve their culture in the exterior as well as to establish relationships with other countries by portraying the beauties and the future of Venezuelans or descendants of Venezuelans in the United States; This while giving back to the community and enriching this city through social and cultural events in which the winner of the pageant will participate in.
This was certainly a wonderful opportunity and it provided to participants an experience where the beauty of Venezuelan women was highlighted.
This project fostered a union of citizens and the participation of all the Venezuelan community. It also helped to establish friendship between the participants and Venezuelan citizens living in the United States.

ABOUT THE HOLLY ROSE RIBBON FOUNDATION:
The non-profit was established in 2004 in honor of Holly Harwood Skolkin and now in her memory by Dr. Franklin and Cindi Rose. The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that provides 100% free reconstructive surgery to un-insured post-cancer patients. The HRRF offers grief counseling, college scholarships to cancer survivors or to those who have lost a parent to cancer, breast reconstructive surgeries at no-cost to the survivor, and arts in medicine activities for children currently undergoing cancer treatment at area hospitals. During the ten-year history of the Foundation there have been no salaries, both Cindi and her husband Franklin have volunteered their services and time to the organization as a whole. All funds collected through this event go for the many costs associated in providing reconstructive surgery like nursing care, hospital stays and anesthesiologist costs.
To continue to provide these life-altering services to future patients we look to serve, including individuals, families, and children alike, we need your support to assist in furthering our mission. Thank you.
