Greetings from the Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce.
Drumroll, please! Congratulations to our 2019 Peach Queen, Ms. Marandy Burrow! We are also pleased to congratulate Ms. Sadie Waldrep, this year’s runner up. The Chamber is thrilled to announce that this year’s candidates raised $73,938.70. That’s a 150% year over year increase. Last year the girls raised $28,000+.
This year’s candidates worked very hard, and all of them should feel very proud of their accomplishments! Please congratulate them when you see them.
The money raised by these young ladies will be applied to scholarships and will also support tourism and economic development in Pittsburg and Camp County. Congratulations ladies. We thank you for all that ‘you’ve done to help our community!
