Each year during the Miss World contest there is the so called Family charity dinner, where families of the contestants gather with them, The judges and other MW staff for a night out.  Contestants bring special gifts from their home country which then are auctioned for charity.  Hope these photos give you little glimpse into the night.


Below text is from the Miss World site:

One of the annual traditions of Miss World is the Charity Gala Event, where all Miss World contestants bring with them a special gift, be it a personalized painting or a valuable token from their country, and auction it for a good cause.

Just over ¥260,000 (over $40,000) was raised through the auction, raffle and ticket sales on the night, providing vital funds for those in need.


All proceeds of the Charity Gala will go to benefitting the Sanya Orphanage founded by Miss World Chairwoman, Julia Morley, in 2005 that houses and nurtures over 60 orphaned youth. To open the show, the children of the orphanage sang modern renditions of classic Christmas jingles, which had all of the contestants and audience dancing and clapping along!

Many VIP’s were in attendance, including Chief Mandela, grandson of Nelson Mandela, and several Miss World’s including reigning Miss World Rolene Strauss, Miss World 2013 Megan Young, & Miss World 2012 Wenxia Yu, Miss World 2001 Agbani Darego, Miss World 2002 Azra Akin, Miss World 2008 Ksenia Sukhinova and Miss World 1988 Linda Pétursdóttir.
