Anna Grace Smith, Miss Tennessee Pre-Teen 2012, organized and directed the second annual Queens for a Cure “Think Pink” Benefit Pageant which was held Oct. 22, 2012. The purpose of the pageant was to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation as well as raise awareness about Queens for a Cure. This year over $3000 was raised for Komen for the Cure and 6 division queens were crowned as well as 1 overall queen. These girls will participate in various events serving their communities throughout the next year as representatives of Queens for a Cure. Anna Grace is the national President of Queens for a Cure which is an organization for pageant queens and contestants to come together and use their crowns to be positive role models in their communities. Anna Grace and her members organize and participate in many events every month.
Anna Grace also volunteers monthly at a local Second Harvest Food Bank Pantry and participates in annual mission trips with her church youth group. On December 1, 2012, Anna Grace volunteered at the Jingle Bell Walk in Franklin benefiting the Arthritis Foundation.
