The event must have brought her good luck because afterwards Molly Hunter went on to win the Miss North Yorkshire title she had been working so hard towards.
As part of the preparation for the final, the 18-year-old Harrogate woman took part in a charity ball at the Masonic Hall in Harrogate, helping to raise £1,800 for Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice in Middlesbrough.

There she will have the chance to win a national title to represent England at either the World Supermodel or the Top Model of the World international finals.
Molly, who also has modelling experience, said victory would enable her to do even more for her favourite charities.
She said: “Hearing my name over the microphone at the Miss North Yorkshire final made me feel extremely overwhelmed but proud at what I had achieved.
“I am feeling super excited for my year ahead as Miss North Yorkshire, especially working alongside different charities and be able to make a difference.“
Molly works at Nippers Nursery in Knaresborough and is doing an apprenticeship with children to get her NVQ level 3 qualification.
Her mother Clair is an sales administrator for Lookers Ford and Skoda Harrogate while father Gordon is an after sales performance manager for Nissan (GB) Ltd.
She has two brothers, eldest Oliver, 21 works for Mercedes Benz in Harrogate as a technician and younger brother jay, 16 is at school at King James’s in Knaresborough.
