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 information.
