2010: In March of 2010, GeJoe Offutt, Marissa Miller, and Marcus Sanders began to brainstorm an idea that would soon manifest into the Miss Grand Prix Pageant. Gejoe and his entertainment group, New Life Entertainment Group, partnered with Brothers United Inc. to produce Miss Grand Prix 2010. GeJoe immediately placed a call to the talented CoCo Van Cartier who accepted the title of Miss Grand Prix Emeritus.
Grand Prix, which was held at the Ten Night Club, featured three contestants and hosted several hundred patrons. The event was hosted on the last Sunday in May, which is where the pageant received its name. The last Sunday in May is historically known as “Indy 500 Day”. Miss Grand Prix was named in honor of one of the largest sporting events in the world, the Indy 500.
2012: In 2012, Brothers United teamed up with Yella Boi Productions and the birth of the very 1st Mr. Grand Prix soon followed. Since its inception, the Mr. and Miss Grand Prix Pageant has continued to grow tremendously. Thank you for joining a distinguished group of entertainers.
2015: The Grand Prix system is growing into one of the largest pageants in the region. Grand Prix now hosts three preliminary competitions and an annual toy drive, “Because we care”. In addition, Grand Prix has moved to Celebration weekend, and will be the grand finale of a weekend full of events. Grand Prix’s continued growth is due largely to the support of the community. Grand Prix is excited to have so much growth, that we are moving to the historic Antheneum Theater this year!
