The city of Doral is shelling out $2.5 million for Miss Universe 2014 pageant, which is going to be held  on Jan. 18, 2015. Mayor Luigi Boria, anticipating event, stated that it will be “an important economic stimulator for the community.” Seventy-six delegates have been confirmed yet to participate in the contest, in which Gabriela Isler of Venezuela will crown her successor at the finale. Read on for further details.

The noteworthy point is although some events, including the Coronation Ball, will be held in Doral, the pageant won’t in fact be happening in Doral. Approximately 90 contestants from around the world will gather at Florida International University.  Contestants are expected to stay at the Trump National Doral Miami golf resort.

“In just two weeks, we already collected more than $1 million in sponsorships,” said Boria, mentioning the sponsors of the pageant including Badia, Baptist Health South Florida, Pan Am World Airways and the developer building downtown Doral Codina.

While Doral has $500,000 in taxpayer funds, Boria is hoping to raise another $2 million from private contributors to support the Miss Universe pageant.
