Miss Loris Bog-Off Festival Teen, Deegan Hudson will be representing Loris in the Miss South Carolina Teen pageant in June in Columbia.

The platform for Miss America and Miss South Carolina Organization is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Deegan has been working very hard to raise funds for this amazing organization. These wonderful programs have given her many outlets, helped her to discover her true purpose and inspiring others to reach their dreams through her unique gift of ventriloquism. Through this experience, she has learned all about Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and how much the network impacts millions of families across America.

It is because of the Miss America Organization and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that she has found who she is and what she wants to do in life. Deegan and her elephant sidekick, Peanut, have been visiting hospitals delivering smiles, love and hope. Deegan is determined to earn a PhD in child psychology so she can one day give back to the these programs that have truly changed her life forever.

There are four Children Miracle Network Hospitals in the state of South Carolina. Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital in Columbia, Greenville Children’s Hospital in Greenville, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston and McLeod Children’s Hospital in Florence which also includes McLeod Loris Seacoast. All funds raised in our community stays in our community.

These hospitals help injured and sick children in our community. Sixty-two children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute. Whether they suffer from common childhood afflictions like asthma and broken bones, or fight bigger challenges like birth defects or cancer. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provides comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids. In fact, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals treat one in 10 children in North America each year.
