First Yemeni-Canadian pageant contestant will unveil a new look, transforming from politiecono-nerd to groomed beauty, while performing her Persian dance as a preview at Persian Express Cuisine in Ottawa for the 2010 national competition in Toronto, June 12, 14. The Canadian pageant has just officially released the photos and biographies of the contestants. She made international headlines for the decision to wear a sari over her bathing suit, due to cultural and professional reasons. Much like Al-Masani, Persian Expess Cuisine aspires to bring the Canadian dream to life through the beauty and richness of a multicultural mosaic.

Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) April 22, 2010 -- Maria Al-Masani, a beauty contestant who made international headlines for wearing a sari over a bikine, will hold a fundraising dinner to highlight her two humanitarian initiatives: Alternative Dispute Resolution and the Borama Fistula Hospital at Persian Express Cuisine at 340 Laurier W, on Thursday, April 22, 6:00-7:00 pm cocktails; 7-9 dinner. Complimentary Persian extraordinary food and drinks at bar from 6 to 7 with a press pass. Al-Masani is the first Yemeni-Canadian to compete in a Miss Universe or Miss Earth pageant.

Al-Masani chose Persian Express Cuisine, a 4.5 out of 5 stars restaurant conveniently located in downtown Ottawa (intersection of Laurier and Bank), as she will be performing a Persian dance reserved for the talent component. “This is one of my favourites, a restaurant with historic elegant décor and exquisite cuisine. The event is also an excuse to indulge in my favourite food, delicious fassenjoon that no one makes better than Persian Express.” Fassenjoon consists of meat marinated in a decadent walnut and pomegranate sauce served with most delicious rice.

Al-Masani will be unveiling a new look, Hair Extensions by Joseph’s, makeover by Holt and Renfrew, dress by draping-couturier extraordinaire Adolfo of A&B Couture, beauty treatment by Crystalis Clinic. A doctor and a representative of women’s fistula hospital in Somalia will be present to discuss the project after the kebab koubadiah and other Persian delicacies are served. Al-Masani aspires to eventually have Dr.Qaws of the fistula hospital appear on Oprah. Brigadier General Ford will talk about the applications of alternative dispute resolution created by aboriginal Canadians, and their application in intractable conflicts of the world, from Bosnia to Israel-Palestine to Somalia.

Ms.Hashemi, co-owner of Persian Express Cuisine says, “The pageant shows the diversity of our community, and we support the decision of Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu and other Canadian women who chose to wear the sari or to wear the swimsuit alike. With their decisions, Miss Universe-Canada embodies the Canadian dream.”

Al-Masani has escaped an arranged marriage at 14, and has written in the Hill Times on child marriage and Canada's contribution to G8 MDG 4 and 5.

Adolfo, Al-Masani’s couturier, might drape and sew an evening gown on a live journalist in five minutes! There will be an array of exotic appetizers, live Persian music, intriguing Persian dishes, deserts and famous Persian tea to accompany the performance of Maria Al-Masani’s dance.

Maria is one of 62 contestants for Miss Universe Canada
