18 Jan DABC Member Spotlight: Beauty Brains and Heart
~Beauty, Brains and Heart is a trademark company owned and operated by Mrs. Jackie Russo. Her daughter Typhani assists in helping and together this “dynamic duo” mother/daughter team are dedicated to promoting positive pageantry and organizing unique community events. We want to reach out to young ladies who are more than just a pretty face! Those woman who love competing in pageants but also are inspired through the pageant world to be involved in promoting their platform issues, are active in charitable organizations as well as within their community. These girls are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. They possess all of the necessary attributes to be positive role models and leaders. They are beautiful both physically and spiritually, intelligent, career-oriented, talented, virtuous and compassionate! These girls who are so very comfortable being in the spotlight with their make-up, spray tans, beaded gowns and high heeled shoes can be just as comfortable out of the limelight with a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers volunteering their time and talents. Amazing young ladies who wear their crowns on their hearts! We are the current director’s of the Miss Beauty, Brains and Heart Team Queens group, Pennsylvania’s Heart Inspired and Beautiful Pageant, Pennsylvania’s Benevolent Jr. Teen, Teen, Miss and Woman Pageant, Miss Holly Jolly Charity Pageant for Toys for Tots, Miss American Liberty Pageant and our very fun Which Witch Is Which Pageant. BBH is extremely proud to organize an annual benefit Fashion Show each year too! We have produced and directed the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Pennsylvania U.S.A. Ambassador Pageants and also the 2008, 2009, 2010 and also the 2011 Pennsylvania’s Perfect Jr. Teen, Teen, Miss and Woman Pageant and Pennsylvania’s Little Miss Perfect Pageant. We have produced the Pawsitively Purrfect Benefit Fashion Show, TNT Talent Showcase Production as well as having appeared on several reality show events. We are available for judging and Typhani is also available to choreograph, perform and emcee your events! ~ There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in your heart. ~
We started this business as a hobby to share with young ladies that may not otherwise have this kind of opportunity and experience within the world of pageantry and also to promote and encourage the importance of volunteerism and giving back. We enjoy mentoring the girls that we work with and my daughter’s extensive background is inspiring to them.
What makes us unique is that we are a for fun business and not a for profit one. We should have probably made this a non-profit organization but at my old age I did not want the mounds of paperwork so we do what we can with what we have to work with…and enjoy every minute of it.
We have been operating for over 10 years and in that time we have supported many charitable organizations having raised over $50,000 at different fundraising events in our community and surrounding areas.
Moving forward we will continue to support numerous charitable organizations through fundraising and continue our own efforts to work hands on planning our own creative events. We are currently striving to increase our pageant group as well.
As for upcoming events we will have a table at the Mirror Moms Superhero event in March and we look forward to being a sponsor for the upcoming March of Dimes Signature Chef’s Auction.
