Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/03/2019 -- Gary Barbera, founder of Barbera's on the Boulevard, sponsored the 2019 Miss Philadelphia Competition held at the Venice Island Performing Arts Theater in Manayunk on Saturday night. 20-year-old Alysa Bainbridge of Leesport, PA, was crowned Miss Philadelphia 2019.
In addition to scholarship awards and prizes, the new Miss Philadelphia will make over 100 appearances over the next year on behalf of charitable organizations and as an ambassador of the city. The Miss Philadelphia Scholarship Organization is committed to the educational, professional and personal development of young women in the Greater Philadelphia region.
"I am thrilled to be able to support this awesome event," said Gary Barbera. "The Miss Philadelphia Scholarship Organization helps to encourage and empower women, and I'm excited to support this important chapter of their lives."
Barbera, who was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia and whose business is right on Roosevelt Boulevard, immediately saw the opportunity to sponsor the competition as a great way to help his community and is a perfect fit with his "Barbera Cares" program
His program is focused on the local community and the wants and needs of the people who live in it. According to Barbera, he "found a quote from Teddy Roosevelt that sums it all up." The quote is, "Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care."
