Miss Connecticut United States - 2019

Francine Donahue

Though I volunteer with many charities and raise awareness for many causes such as suicide prevention awareness, endometriosis, homeless, ect... My platform lies close to my heart. The Andrea Rizzo foundation is in honor of the late Andréa Rizzo, Andréa survived pediatric cancer but had her life taken from her by a drunk driver at the age of 24. Andréas dream was to become a dance therapist. Her dream lives on through the Andrea Rizzo foundation which provides children with special needs dance therapy. This foundation is so close to my heart not only because Andréa was my half brothers cousin, but because when I realized that when I do events such as bake sales, coin drops, fashion shows, and even setting up scholarships in honor of the foundation , it truly makes an impact on these kids!
