I planned to take lots of pictures at the Miss Bienestar 2008 pageant, but I forgot to bring by spare camera battery, and it died after 3 shots!
Miss Bienestar 2008 had some of the most impressive costumes I have ever seen, all with a theme of Central and South American pride. And I have seen a lot of amazing outfits in my day!
Bienestar is a grass-roots, non-profit community service organization established in 1989. Bienestar originated as a direct result of neglect and non-existent HIV/AIDS services for the Latino community. Since our establishment, Bienestar has evolved into a multi-service, multi-center agency, offering services throughout Los Angeles County, San Bernardino County, and San Diego.
