McKensie Garber, Miss Missouri 2015, holds a baby receiving care at Freeman Health System's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Joplin. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is the official platform for the Miss America Organization. Participants competing in Miss America-sponsored pageants raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Miss America Scholarship Fund. Since 2007, the partnership has raised more than $10 million for Children’s Miracle Networks Hospitals across the United States. Garber will continue to represent Missouri until the next winner is crowned in June 2016.
