Miss Mississippi Trunk Show 2011

A month from today, Miss Mississippi 2011, Mary Margaret Roark will be heading to the Miss America pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sunday afternoon in Vicksburg, Miss Mississippi previewed some of the wardrobe she will take to the national competition. She will have to be prepared for a pancake breakfast, press events, balls, concerts and the actual on stage competition.

Miss Mississippi has been busy since July when she was crowned, promoting her platform, J.E.W.E.L.S for Alzheimer's. Her grandmother has Alzheimer's and she designs jewelry to help raise money to find a cure and provide support for families dealing with the disease. She also talked with us about some of her favorite outfits.

"The purple dress is one of my favorites, my jewelry that I have actually made, that I'll be show casing, one of my passions which is J.E.W.E.L.S for Alzheimer's, and my evening gown is everything I could have imagined and more. So its definitely at the top of my list of favorite outfits as well", said Roark.

Miss Mississippi recently presented a check from the sale of her jewelry to the Mississippi Alzheimer's Association. She did not model the gowns she will wear for talent and evening wear Sunday. Alterations are still being made to have them finished in time for the miss America pageant.
