Former Saturday Night Live Alum Terry Sweeney has agreed to host the upcoming Beaufort Beauties Pageant 2011 for Main Street Beaufort, USA, which raises money for five local charities. Nine local men have already signed up to put their best “heel” forward by dressing as women, with the help of their wives, and competing in talent and evening gown competitions. Terry Sweeney will be performing as his comedic character “Lucinda Ravenel” — a sharp-tongued, grey-haired Charleston matron of the “old school.” Sweeney said, “I am always ready to put my girdle back on for a good cause.”
The event will benefit Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Club of the Lowcountry, Beaufort Film Commission, Main Street Beaufort, Zonta Club of Beaufort and Senior Services of the Lowcountry. The event will be held at the Dataw Island Club, Saturday, June 18, at 7:30 p.m.
The tax-deductible tickets, at $30 each, are available for sale now at Main Street Beaufort, USA. The event is expected to sell out. For more information and to purchase tickets call (843) 525-6644 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
