She has helped with the Ferrari and Friends Concorso, which works closely with the Children”s Medical Hospital and the “Make-A-Wish Foundation”; Susan G. Komen, Walk for The Cure events; and, Habitat for Humanity as her charities of choice.
Brady is engaged to fiancé Tony Capasso. The couple were scheduled to marry on November 9, the same day as Erin will now compete in the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. And in accordance with the Miss USA rules Brady and Capasso now have to wait until Brady has completed her year as the titleholder.
