“It was a real pleasure to be part of such an amazing team and to help raise money for great causes in Iowa.

Every year thousands of lives are changed through the generosity of the people. Iowa you are amazing!”




Reigning Miss World Mireia Lalaguna was in Iowa this weekend joining a celebrity cast in the annual Variety Iowa Telethon, helping to raise over $3.7 million for local charities!



Now in its 42nd year, this annual event has raised over $100 million in its history, and this year came very close to beating last year’s record haul of $3.8 million. A 24 hour event, the telethon sees local and international celebrities come together for a marathon of performances and presentations alongside individual appeals and of course major donation presentations!




Miss World’s participation included a stint in presenting on during the live telecast as well as manning the phones taking donations from the citizens of Iowa who annually turn out to provide for those less fortunate than themselves.
