The 5th annual Beaufort Beauties Contest fundraiser event is set for March 29th at 7:30pm, at The Shed in Port Royal.
We watch for the fifth year as local men put their best ‘heel’ forward by dressing as women and competing in a beauty pageant sponsored by Main Street Beaufort, USA to raise money for four local charities.
Ticket holders will be entertained with an opening number, talent and evening gown competitions, and Q&A with judges Nan Sutton, Holly Jahn, Representative Shannon Erickson, Kevin Cuppia, and Scott Dadson.
This year’s line-up includes locals Jeff Feus – Moe’s Southwest Grill, Greg Rawls – Dragon Boat Beaufort, Kyle Warren – Rapid Refill, Danny Williams – Lady’s Island-St. Helena Fire District, Joel Garrett – 94.5 The Coast, Christopher Geier – Attorney at Law, and Justin Lane – Lady’s Island-St. Helena Fire District.
The event will be hosted by Beaufort City Councilman, Mike McFee.
To fill you in on the whole concept, Main Street Beaufort has asked influential men in the community to ask friends, neighbors, and business partners to support them and dress as women for a show we’ll never forget. Each contest’s goal is to raise $1,000 that will be donated to the efforts of Main Street Beaufort, USA as well as Dragon Boat Beaufort, Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity, and Healing Heroes of the Lowcountry Fund.
‘Miss Congeniality’ will be crowned according to the man/woman that raises the most money. The event itself will be like a real beauty pageant with an opening choreographed number, talent show, evening gown competition, and one-on-one interviews.
Tickets can be purchased from Main Street Beaufort at (843) 525-6644 or by visiting the office at 101 West Street Extension in downtown Beaufort. Tickets are $35 each. Tables of 10 or 12 are available for reservations as well as a new VIP on-stage seating this year for $250, includes seating for 5 and drinks. You can also donate money towards a specific beauty’s quest to become Miss Congeniality.
Always a fun time…and always a sellout, we look forward to the 5th annual event.
