In October 2022, Mia Glassco won the Casa Italia Foundation’s Miss Italia of Ohio 2022-2023 pageant.
“Not only did I have an amazing experience, but I got to learn so much about my culture and family history. I dedicated a part of my proceeds to the Northern Italian American Foundation (NOIA) to support preserving the culture in the Cleveland Area. I grew up in Cleveland and have been going to Little Italy since I was a baby. I really would love to start getting the younger generations involved in the beautiful culture that we have. If there is anything that I can do to support Little Italy in the future please let me know.”
