Meet Mrs. Minnesota International 2008!

Leisha Gust (Mrs. Burnsville) was crowned Mrs. Minnesota International 2008 on March 9th in St. Cloud. Minnesota, where she competed with other "county/city" title holders from across the state. These women are recognized for their achievements as individuals and as a vital part of the family unit.

Her Platform

"Encountering Magic: Make A Wish Foundation" This extraordinary organization grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota was established in 1982 and has since granted over 2,800 wishes, each one combining a bit of magic, a lot of love, and many wonderful memories.
Wishes can range from having a special toy to a family trip to Disney World; be as functional as a computer; or as exciting as meeting a favorite celebrity. Whatever the wish, it is the dream of the child. In fulfilling wishes, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota puts emphasis on the joy of having a wish come true... it has been said that doctors provide the medicine and we provide the magic.
