“Our partnership with Miss USA has been one we cherish at SeneGence,” said Joni Rogers-Kante, SeneGence founder and CEO. “Our philosophies of allowing women to feel their most beautiful and powerful by being their authentic selves are completely aligned. SeneGence is always looking at ways we can support women and children in need, so it was an easy decision to develop this custom color duo with Miss USA that would give back to these specific organizations that are focused on this same mission.”

“Smile Train is built on the power of partnerships, and we are extremely grateful for the generosity and support from The Miss USA Organization and SeneGence,” said Susannah Schaefer, President & CEO of Smile Train. “Their donation will have a long-lasting sustainable impact to support the global cleft community in more than 70 countries, giving individuals with clefts an opportunity to live a full and productive life.”

“Best Buddies is incredibly grateful to partner with SeneGence and The Miss USA Organization in support of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” said Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Chairman, Founder and CEO of Best Buddies International. “Their generous donation and dedication to Best Buddies’ mission of inclusion will help expand our programs and bring an even greater awareness to the infinite abilities people with IDD possess.”
