The Miss Friendship Ambassador Pageant 2013 doubles as the Chinatown Chamber of Commerce's biggest fundraiser.

The biennial event, one of the chamber's biggest fundraisers, takes place Nov. 3 at the International Ballroom of the Hilton Chicago hotel, 720 S. Michigan Ave. There will be prizes in several categories: first, second and third, plus Miss Congeniality and Miss Photogenic.

The Audience Choice award, where the crowd can help select a winner, is new this year.
