“Mr. Healdsburg” finalists selected

Monday, February 13th, 2012 | Posted by

Six contestants vying for “Mr. Healdsburg 2012″  have been named and the winner of the pageant will be crowned on Feb. 25 at the Raven Performing Arts Theater.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the Raven. Advance tickets are $40 and can be purchased online at raventheater.org or at the local Copperfield’s Book Store. The pageant has sold out in recent years.

The competition is a parody of beauty contests. Online voting and a panel of judges will determine the winner. The six finalists will parade on the runway in beach and formal wear. They will also perform and be interviewed on stage.

The finalists:

Nick Bertalon (firefighter)

Scott Lindstrom-Dake (owner/winemaker of Thumbprint Winery)

Chris Herrod (supplies exotic wood/tools to guitar makers, musician)

David Opperman (hairstylist at A Tres Beau)

Poss Pragoff (author, realtor director of Pat Paulson presidential campaign)

Jerry Strong (retired owner of Branscomb Nursery)

Brad Brenner (artist)

The reigning “Mr. Healdsburg” is Tejpal Sekhon.

  • Concerned Healdsburger

    Always like the Mr. Healdsburg thing, but what has happened to the rest of the Ravens unique events? Missing are multiple music and comedy acts, the annual Duct Tape Fashion Show, Sex Workers Art Show and many others. The grand old old bird now functions as little more then a high school auditorium. No more of the “edge” events that made the Raven a resource for the entire community, and helped separate Healdsburg as not just another generic wine country stop.

  • Lee

    This event has really gone downhill, for example contestant #4 does not live or work in Healdsburg!

    • Carol Noack

      Lee, Contestant #4 does indeed have a residence on Fitch Mountain. We don’t require our constants to work in town.

  • Cinderella

    #4; the Opperman Family are natives of Healdsburg
