Never again will I attend this junkyard pageant system.

People sing her praises but she is a joke.

she have you bring in cat, dog an cleaning items for her pets and home instead of for the shelter. She then bribes you and let you know that she will add an extra 10 points on your dd's score.

She caters to all of the well known girls in the 'pageant industry" and anyone who travels from afar to attend this junkyard system she will treat better because she thinks she owes them for traveling a few extra miles.

Reasons not to go:

  • Completely unorganized and unprofessional

  • she uses the other big directors who run shady pageants too, like Madonna Durbin, Diana Carter, Michael Booth, Etc. to help her bring in pageant big names. 

  • If your child is just starting out in pageants do not take her to HEAVENLY ANGELS ran by grace james or you will watse time and money.

  • she claims that the cost is $150 but it's actually is way more than that. 

  • she gives piss s**t awards, but lures the kids and moms in with cheap toys from China and even cheaper crowns.

  • she has adult bingo in which she allows parents to get sloppy drunk in front of their kids.

  • She has Mr. Tim emcee who is  a known pervert and should stay far away from kids, especially people's sons- him and Billy Newsom are known predators of kids.

This system needs to be shut down.

message me and i will give you full details about this system.

This is slanderous and defamatory

AUTHOR: Director - ()

There are so many untruthful statements made by the original poster


1. All SPCA donations picked up by Harrisburg humane society - number to call to verify 717-564-3320

2. Calling Tim witmer and Billy Newsome pedaphiles is very damaging

3. My prizes are not cheap. American girl dolls are over $100 we gave ten away

   We gave 8 battery operated ride on vehicles away

   Mac makeup

   Coach products

   many other name brand items

4 parents were not drunk in front of children at any time. 


there are numerous other untruthful damaging remarks , we have a website that pictures of the crowns can be seen,

pictures of the prize tables showing the hundreds of prizes that were top quality name brand items. 

I find it hurtful to my business that when a google search comes up this site pops up first. I have had my pageant since 2000 and never ever have had any type of complaint filed against me. We ran over 14 pageants this year alone. 

Go to my website and see pictures of the prizes tables, crowns, staging,

if we were unprofessional our set up alone would also be.

Someone sounds mad their kid didn't win

AUTHOR: pageantmom - ()

 My children and I have attended Grace's pageant several times.  We drive about 8-9 hours to attend.  She runs one of the best systems out there--I had a hard time fitting all the gifts in my car!  My daughter's entire divison won Mac Makeup and Coach purses!  Cheap prizes?  Try again.  Also, her crowns are custom and are beautiful!  Eveything ran on time and was very organized--we would not waste our time and money going back if it wasn't!  She has a great kids' party the night before with bouncy things and face painting, etc.  She makes sure EVERY child is recognized on stage regardless of placement.  By the way, sometimes my children win big and sometimes they don't.  Different day, different outcome!

Also, I cannot believe such horrible thing were said about Mr. Tim!  That man is nothing but kind!  I have a son and a daughter and would trust him to care for either of them.

Overall, this is one of the best pageants out there, and the report filed is filled with lies!

This is one of the best pageants out there.

AUTHOR: nikitarn69 - ()

My grandaughter has been doings since she was 4 she is now going to be 9 years old.

Grace's pageant is our favorite pageant by far. My grandaughter has never won big at her pageants but we still love going! I can say one thing that Grace has a organized and well put together pageant.  Grace really thinks about the kids and the entire family for the entire weekend.  Please do not take what one person says about this pageant because it is not true! Every child leaves her pageant a winner.

Go to the Heavenly Angels \face book site and u tube .  U can see for yourself.

Sorry you had a bad experiance- Here are the facts though

AUTHOR: Director - ()

I am the director of Heavenly Angels Pageants. I have ran this sysyem since 2000. First off let me address the 10 donations for the SPCA. These go DIRECTLY to the Humane society and if you were present at the pageant you would know they came Saturday during comrption to both the Pennsylvania and Dauphin ballroom and thanked the contestants for such great donations. We do not keep any of the items. They were picked up as I stated from the Harrisburg Humane Society you can call them directly to get verification.


Now To address the prizes- I purchase quality brand name prizes. Prizes consisted of MAC Makeup, Victoria Secret lotions, sprays, Bath and Body, American girl Dolls from the New York City American Girl Doll Store, Melissa and Doug name brand, TY, Disney Store items, Adora Dolls, Folkmanis, and many other store brands. I am insulted to see you post such lies. We had battery operated Barbie Ride Ons, Mercedes Benz Ride ons, Cinderella Bikes, La La Loopsy items and so much more..


YES the Price is $150.00 IF you met the Early bird price you recieved the registration fee and Supreme package for $150.00 if registered by the first early bird deadline. If you registered after the early birds than yes you paid more. The extra events at the door ARE NOT REQUIRED , it is your option to enter the optionals at the door. They are not mandatory nor required to win the BIG titles.


Lets address Mr Tim. He has been in the industry for over 25 years. There has never been an allegation against him. That is slander and defamation against his character. Mr Tim is a very professional and kind man.


Billy Newsome Do not know him so I do not know why his name was even menthioned.

You stated I use directors to get Name kids-- Who is Diana Carter never been to one of her parents, nor has she attended any of mine. Do not even know who she is.. Madonna Durbin has done Hair and Makeup at Heavenly Angels for years , Michael Booth HAS NEVER ATTENDED. 

ADULT BINGO- Lets address this issue. First off it is at 11pm at night. ADULTS ONLY.. NO KIDS!It is an adult only get togethor no one is forced to come or required to attend. Yes parents may drink if they choose to do. Once again it is an adult get together so what is the harm in that. Also babysitters names are given out to parents ahead of time so children are NOT left unattended! PARENTS SLOPPY DRUNK IN FRONT OF KIDS YOU STATED! THERE ARE NOT KIDS THERE!


Lets talk about the crowns- The crowns are $55.00 a piece plus shipping... NOT CHEAP at all!


Lets talk about the winners-- I have nothing to do with the outcome. I hire a judges coordinator who gets qualified NON CIRCUT judges. My judges are very well qualified and are given the judging criteria ahead of time, Score sheets and judges meeting with coordinator. They have no idea who a contestant is or any so called political connections. Your comment makes no sense!


Unorganized? We gave every contestant a time schedule it is ran within 5 minutes of times designated. It is very well organized and run well --extremly well. We had 12 staff members plus a Production company from Nashville Tennessee that did our Video and Photograghy. There is nothing disorganized about this system at all. I strive to make it professional and well ran from the time you register, to competition to partuy to crowning. Everything flows very good!
