“Mr. Healdsburg” finalists selected
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.
