Three Generations of beauty!

"Family Values" is something Carol Staub knows a lot about, the youngest of thirteen children; she has learned to appreciate every moment she is given with her family. She has a wonderful daughter Yvette, Ms. Woman Petite America 2010, a beautiful granddaughter Chelsea, Miss Petite America 2010 and a great son-in-law Eric who are a there supporting her in every adventure she partakes in. She is proud and honored to carry the title of Lady Petite America and wants to share her message of "Always Follow Your Dreams.
Although retired, Carol keeps herself busy helping people in her community, rescuing animals, maintaining her expert level on the Wii game and dancing to stay fit. She also enjoys her four cats, scuba diving, restoring furniture and just being around people and having fun.
Carol looks forward to working with many charities and continuing to support the Valerie Fund, Relay For Life and most especially our Veterans which is close to her heart. Her father was a WWI Veteran and two of her brothers were in the military. She also wants to spend this year bringing awareness to the issues we currently face with Social Security.
She believes life is to be lived and that age is just a number. Her motto is "Always Follow Your Dreams" and she is living proof you are never to old to do so!

U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program
Mission: The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
Goal: The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
Objectives: The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable resources - our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
Activities: The principal Toys for Tots activity which takes place each year is the collection and distribution of toys in the communities in which a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located. In communities without a Reserve Unit, the campaign can be conducted by a Marine Corps League Detachment or group of men and women, generally veteran Marines, authorized by Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a local Toys for Tots campaign. Local Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year, which include golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.

A letter of thanks from the event organizers to our Petite America representatives!


The Valerie Fund's mission is to provide support for the comprehensive health care of children with cancer and blood disorders. The Valerie Fund is a not-for-profit organization established in 1976 in memory of nine-year-old Valerie Goldstein by her parents, Ed and Sue. Families turn to The Valerie Fund because of the unique combination of medical care, counseling, and other services it provides. The Valerie Fund Children's Centers comprise the largest network of healthcare facilities for children with cancer and blood disorders in New Jersey, and one of the largest in the nation. We host over 25,000 patient visits each year. Today there are seven Valerie Fund Children's Centers for Cancer and Blood Disorders located in major hospitals in New Jersey, New York, and the Philadelphia area providing caring, comprehensive, state-of-the-art outpatient health care to more than 5,000 children and their families each year. This network means that sick children are able to receive care close to their homes. Before The Valerie Fund, many children�such as Valerie Goldstein�had to travel long distances because the treatment they needed was available only at major medical facilities located in large cities. At The Valerie Fund Centers, patients receive far more than treatment for their physical illnesses. Our philosophy is that to truly heal the children with whose care we are entrusted, we must treat them emotionally, socially, and developmentally, as well as medically. Childhood disease strikes not only the child, but the entire family. When a child is a patient at a Valerie Fund Center, a staff of social workers, counselors, psychologists, and child-life specialists enfold the child and the family in a blanket of ongoing, individualized care. We firmly believe this approach is the most effective way to fight childhood disease. For more information: www.thevaleriefund.org.
