An uplifting evening

Victor's Secret Pageant event raises funds for cancer charity.

PORT McNEILL—With a canister of confetti and flurry of feather boas, more than a dozen local men strapped into women’s bras and strut their stuff before an appreciative audience in the second Victor’s Secret Pageant at the Community Hall.

The event, organized by Cheryl Verbrugge, featured the uniquely decorated bras donated last summer to the Bras for a Cause fundraiser hosted by Flower Shoppe owner Lyn Skrlac.

Each contestant appeared twice before a panel of judges, showing off a different bra while competing in evening wear, swimwear, talent and question-and-answer categories.

Glenn Moore was crowned Mr. Victor’s Secret by Tammy (Beech) Beek, the last Miss Port McNeill, after portraying a 1960s hippie in his first trip down the runway, then crooning the Randy Travis hit Forever and Ever (Amen).

First runner-up was crowd favourite Kelly Jones, who got so carried away with his striptease routine that he removed even the bra he was supposed to be showing off. Second runner-up was Don “Harpo” Rudd, who donned a curly blonde wig and nylons to shake his stuff as the crowd whooped.

The show was sold out for the second straight year as the audience contributed to cancer research and to benefit local patients by buying tokens to toss to their favourites or bid on raffle baskets donated by local businesses.

The total raised was still being tallied by organizers earlier this week.
