Three Pacific Queens Go Up The Sky Tower...

13 September 2004

Three Pacific Queens Go Up The Sky Tower….. And Come Down Very Fast!

Three contestants from the Queen of The Whole Pacific, a Very Queer Beauty Pageant, are showing their dedication to fundraising for the New Zealand AIDS Foundation by jumping off Auckland’s Sky Tower fully dressed in their frocks and wigs. Miss Malaysia, Miss Tahiti and Miss Panama are taking the big 192 metre Sky Jump plunge today Monday 13 September at 2pm.

Queen of The Whole Pacific shows at SKYCITY Theatre on Saturday 18 September 2004.

A beauty pageant like Auckland has never seen before and certainly will never forget. Contestants representing Pacific Rim nations have been together now for the past couple of months, strutting their stuff in preparation for the big night. Nobody’s thrown a handbag in the works yet but as the big night approaches, tensions mount and we can’t guarantee that the Pacific Misses won’t be prone to a little tripping up from a grand height…..

Be there to catch the action!

Note: replacement MC on the night, Helen Medlyn
