Breanna McCrea and Parker Fowler won the titles of Little Miss and Little Mister Wendell respectively earlier this month during the Wendell Harvest Festival.
The 13 children competing for the titles were asked to raise money for four Wendell-area food pantries. The top fundraising boy and girl won the titles.
Together, the participants raised more than $10,000 to support the food pantries at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Wendell Baptist Church, Wendell United Methodist Church and Hephzibah Baptist Church.
McCrea, the 6-year-old daughter of Lamont and Kathy McCrea of Wendell, led all fundraisers, collecting $4,005. Fowler, the son of Ryan and Della Fowler of Wendell, raised $1,044 to outpace the other boys in the contest.
Never miss a local story.
All the contestants were recognized from the main stage at the J. Ashley Wall Towne Square during this month’s Harvest Festival.
