History of the Pageant
In late 1974, Mrs. Sally Copeland of Georgia Care Nursing Home in Tifton was named Mrs. Goober by the Georgia Peanut Commission after a local pageant involving nursing home residents. Due to the highly favorable media attention that this pageant received, GHCA and the Peachtree Atlanta Kiwanis Club sponsored the first Ms. Georgia Nursing Home Pageant in May 1976. The reigning Miss Atlanta crowned Mrs. Sophie Weiss of The William Breman Jewish Home as the first Mrs. Nursing Home. The pageant later broadened to be a statewide pageant and has remained an annual event of the Association, giving nursing home residents a fun event to participate in, while recognizing their contributions.
For those staying overnight, GHCA has secured a discounted block of rooms at the Marriott. Click here for online reservations.
