It was an hilarious, mind-bending, woman-less "beauty" pageant last night at the Calhoun County Park, raising over $1000 for the American Cancer Society. Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center's Relay for Life Team, called the "Heaven's Helpers" sponsored the contest which featured nearly a dozen men dressed as women.

The event concluded with the crowing of the pageant winner "Queen Queenie," a well-known local politician who said this could be the end of his public career. Several of the other performers received special recognition.

It was standing room only in the park barn, the audience more than amused at the performances of local men who volunteered to perform.

Could this be Aunt Bea?

WVRC Radio personality, a spectacle himself, was MC for the program, which called for the contestants to dance, participate in a "pretty" legs contest, answer questions, demonstrate talent and appear in evening wear.
