WINSLOW, Ariz. - It's time again for Winslow's premiere event, the "Alice's Guy" Beauty Pageant. Contestants will parade past a five-person panel to be judged in four categories including swimsuit, talent, evening gown and Q&A. The pageant is scheduled for Saturday, May 7 at 7 p.m. at the Winslow High School Performing Arts Center. The cost to attend is $10 per adult and $5 for children under 12.
Contestants will compete for the coveted "Alice's Guy" title, currently held by Miss Alignment (aka: Dr. Greg Hackler). Contestants will perform a number of spectacular displays of grace, beauty, talent and silliness for the whole family.
"This event is going to be filled with lots of fun and surprises" says Connie Hackler, who is serving as the Special Events Chairperson for Alice's Place. "In addition to the contest, during the intermission we will be auctioning off local men for their domestic chore talents to the highest bidders." This year's auctioneer is Tom McCauley.
Everyone who has a seemingly never-ending "honey-do list" should participate in this opportunity. If you just can't seem to get that garage cleared out or your junk hauled off or even that yardwork which needs tending, you can bid for one of these men to do it for you. This donation not only help take care of that "honey-do list," it is also tax deductible and for a great cause. You will also have lots of laughs. How can you beat that?
Contestants this year include Jim McLean, Mike Duran, Bob Schlesinger, Dr. Tom Greenwood, Chris Alexander, Dr. Greg Hackler, Blake Grimm, Marshall Losey, Jason Twede and Jeremy Henling.
Local beauticians will donate hair and make-up assistance to ensure that the contestants look their very best. "These guys will look absolutely lovely" Hackler says. Bob Hall and Judge Allison Kolomitz will serve as emcees. The panel of judges this year will include Mary Campbell, J.R. DeSpain, Jesse Thompson, Marcia Garnett and Helen Butler.
This event will raise money for the operational expenses of Alice's Place, an Empowerment Center who is dedicated to helping victims and survivors of domestic violence through emergency shelter, 24 hour crisis phone lines, advocacy, education and more.
