Lisa Riedel: Well, let me first explain how I became aware of the Queen of the Universe Pageant and I how I became acquainted with Joyce Giraud de Ohoven. We found out about the event through a contestant last year that was looking for financial sponsors. We wanted to make sure it was a legitimate event so I did the research and was very impressed with the owner (Joyce) and her cause which is charity based with all proceeds benefiting UNESCO is the United Nations Education Science and Cultural Organization. I decided to contact them to see if they would be interested in having Corky Kouture as a product sponsor; without telling them that we were also a contestant sponsor as I didn't want to mix the two. I wanted Corky Kouture to be chosen on its own merits. I heard from Joyce herself and that’s how it happened. We didn't attend last year but were able to this year and I am so glad because it really is a very glamorous and exciting event. Joyce Giraud has created something very special and I am really proud of involving the Corky Kouture brand in The Queen of the Universe Pageant.
