Save the Date for Beaufort Beauties

Last year, I attended about every single charity event in Beaufort and I can tell you hands down that the most laughs came from “Beaufort Beauties,” the event where prominent businessmen dress up as female beauty pageant contestants and compete in order to raise money for their favorite charities. This year’s event will benefit the Lions Club, Thumbs Up and Friends of Caroline Hospice.
Seriously, folks, this is  a truly laugh-out-loud event and will be hosted by “Saturday Night Live” alum Terry Sweeney who appears as Lucinda Ravenel — a super snobby, poison- tongued, old Charleston battle-ax. The men do some hilarious dance numbers, have a “talent” contest, evening gown competition and answer “important” questions for a panel of celebrity judges.
This year’s contestants are: Mike McFee, Hometown Realty and City of Beaufort Councilman; Will McCullough, Low Country Real Estate; Karl Wells, 104.9 The Surf; Bob Cunningham, Merry Maids; Warren Florence, Palmetto Bluff Resort Tennis Pro; Hank Herring, Green Herring Art Gallery; and Worth Liipfert of Griffith, Saddler and Sharp Law Firm.
The $25 tax deductible tickets can be purchased from Main Street Beaufort at (843) 525- 6644 or 101 West Street Extension downtown. You can also donate money towards a specific “beauty’s” quest to become Miss Congeniality (the person who raises the most money for their charity).
For inquiries, call the Main Street office at (843) 525-6644 or email info@downtownbeaufort.com. Tickets will also be available at the door. Beaufort Beauties will be held at The Shed, 809 Paris Ave. in Port Royal, on Saturday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. There will be a cash bar and great silent auction items. Don’t miss this laugh-out-loud event!
