March 31, the Curvy Divas of Picayune gathered at New Orleans Seafood Restaurant to unveil the pink Soapbox Derby car they are sponsoring to their membership.
The car features the “Curvy Divas of Picayune” and the Red Hat Society logo on its sides and will race on May 21, in the Moss Point Deborah Washington Memorial Soapbox Derby Race.
Driving the car will be Madison Isabella Krieger, granddaughter of red hatter, Cathy Krieger.
Soapbox Races are held annually in numerous cities throughout the United States. Winners of the local races,such as the one held every year in Moss Point, receive a trip for themselves, their parents, and their car to Akron, Ohio to compete in the National All American Soapbox Derby.
Cars are assembled from kits obtained from All American Soapbox Derby Headquarters and there are three classes: Stock (like the Curvy Divas’ car); Super Stock (a larger car for older competitors); and Masters’ (for even older youngsters). Drivers must be between the ages of 8 and 17 to compete.
