GOOSE LAKE — Several brave Northeast High School students will participate in a male pageant for a good cause. The Mr. Bodacious Competition will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at Northeast High School to benefit cancer research.

Ten bodacious young men will compete for the crown. Areas of competition will include casual wear, formal wear, talent, an on-stage question and the popular swimwear category.

The Mr. Bodacious Competition will be held at the Northeast High School cafeteria. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and tickets can be purchased at the door for $5. There will be a 50/50 raffle, refreshments and a silent auction featuring items donated by more than 30 local businesses. All proceeds will be donated to cancer research.

The event is being organized by Ashley, Brandy and Cassandra Herrington. The sisters live in Clinton, and are all current and former Northeast students. The girls have been involved in pageantry for several years and are all current state title holders.

The Herrington sisters were motivated to organize the event after a good friend was diagnosed with leukemia in January, at the age of 13. After witnessing the friend’s courageous struggle, the sisters decided to use their experience to organize a pageant of their own in order to help raise money to fight this disease.

The Herringtons say they have excellent contestants, and the evening promises to be an enjoyable event for the entire family.
