On Saturday night October, 16,  beautiful House of Sweden right on Potomac riverfront was receiving huge crowd of beauty connoisseurs. Second Miss Sinergy was about to be crowned that night which made everybody so nervous and excited! First Miss Sinergy ever was Ally Rose (who is, by the way, is about to compete for yet another crown soon, Miss Maryland).

Miss Sinergy is an annual beauty pageant benefiting breast cancer society.

Twenty finalists, chosen by public voting earlier, got to compete in final “battle for the title”. Swimsuit competition, evening gown competition, and then final questionnaire for the best six. In between the competitions viewers were entertained by comedian Tehran SoParvaz, magician Josh Norris, singer Krista McClellon.

The judging panel included: former Project Runway cast member Emmett McCarthy, star of Blonde Charity Mafia Katherine Kennedy, Miss Slovak Republic Anna Amenova, director of Sustainable Iceland LLD Baldwin Jonsson, adjunct professor of trial advocacy Justin Daniel, assistant coach for the women’s rowing team at Columbia Malcolm Doldron, author Matthew Christian Davis, social entrepreneur Nakeva Corothers, Miss Universe New Zealand Ria Van Dyke, fashion  entrepreneur and stylist Robin Fleming, Miss Maryland USA 2010 Simone Feldman, Miss Universe Sweden 2009 Renate Cerljen. Event was hosted by comedian and reality-television personality Dan Renzi and Miss Oklahoma USA 2010 Morgan Woolard.

Christa Taylor Aiken was titled as “Miss Photogenic”, Dana Filatova – as “Best in evening gown”, Lauren Ashley – as “Best in swimsuit”  and Chardelle Moore as “Miss Congeniality”. And (********drum roll**********)  Miss Sinergy 2011 became Megan McConville!!! Congratulations, well deserved!
