Jill Conner Browne with Cardinal Queens Sharon McIntosh and Judy Ollis and
program director Kay Hensley.
The original "Sweet Potato
Queen" Jill Conner Browne arrived in Asheville Friday night aboard her big
travel bus as part of a forty five day nationwide book tour. Rather than read
from her new novel she entertained the crowd with stories of her queenly
career. What she describes as her only talent - a queenly wave- has propelled
her into the national spotlight. Browne's "Sweet Potato Queens" from Jackson
Mississippi in cooperation with her home church, Wells United Methodist, have
raised over fifty thousand dollars for the hurricane Katrina recovery effort
along the gulf coast. There are currently over five thousand chapters of
queens. Some of them only have fun celebrating mid life but some of them enjoy
raising money for good causes. Sharon McIntosh organized the Cardinal Queens
in 2005 to help raise money for the March of Dimes. Since then the queens have
raised money for several causes. They are currently accepting donations for
the Jason and Kathy Wheeler family who were involved in a serious car accident
in the Riverside community. Sharon can be contacted at 682-2365 for more
