Dressed in ball gowns and heels, male Shorewood High School students strutted their stuff on the stage Friday, raising $2,700 for the MACC Fund.
This year, the pageant, organized each year by the student council, is apart of the Shorewood Games — a two-week fundraising campaign to benefit the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).
Every four years since the 1980s, the community has united for the games, and over the decades, raised $135,000 for the MACC Fund. Hopes are to bring the total to more than $150,000 this year.
Last year, the pageant proceeds benefited the Wisconsin chapter of Greyhound Pets of America, which helps ex-racing greyhounds find adoptive homes.
The pageant included an introduction of the Miss Shorewood contestants, a question and answer segment and a talent show. The audience then bid on the Miss Shorewood contestants, with the bid money going to the MACC Fund.
Miss Roberta Kohl, also known as Bobby Kohl, was crowned Miss Shorewood this year.
