Brian Bergeron, second from right, and Father Alfonso Gutierrez, right, watch as other participants in the Relay for Life "Male Beauty Revue" parade across the stage of the Tift Theatre Thursday night in Tifton.

The second annual Male Beauty Revue sponsored by “Survivors and Supporting Cast” to benefit Relay for Life will be even more fun than last year’s, according to organizers. The family event is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. April 12 at the Tift Theatre.

“Last year was a lot of fun and it will be again this year,” said Sue Patton, one of the event’s organizers.

This year, Joe Courson will serve as master of ceremonies and Garfield Rhaney will again provide the music for the night.

According to Patton, 15 men have already signed up to don women’s clothing and make themselves up to look like women for the revue. The “Hoochie from Willacoochee” was crowned queen of the revue last year. Patton said that he, or should she say she, won’t be able to participate this year.

“We’re expecting her sister from Willacoochee this year,” Patton said.

Those already committed include: David Morris, Lee Turner, Dale Nichols, Mike Beeman, Van Thornton, Mark VanBrackle, Craig Matthews, Billy King, Andrew Pyles, Don Copeland, Toddrick Webb, Kyle Pack, Francisco Agostino, Lonnie Lewis and Craig Sellers.

Judges will choose a “queen,” first runner up and second runner up and contestants will vote for the winner of Miss Congeniality. It’s not too late for men who are interested to sign up to compete.

Tickets to the revue can be purchased at the door, from the Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce or by calling Patton at 229-382-7058 or Jeanne Creel at 229-386-1933.

Anyone who is a cancer survivor and wants to join the “Survivors and Supporting Cast” group can call Patton or Creel for more information.

Proceeds generated from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life program.
