Chester Rotary Presents: 1st Annual Womanless Beauty Pageant!

In Chester CT Events on March 8, 2011 at 10:15 pm


“Few Good Men”

Womanless Beauty Pageant

March 12th at 7:00 pm at the Chester Meeting House

Vote for your favorite “beauty”
How Voting works (two ways)
1. Between now and the evening before the event, each contestant is fund raising on their own and will turn those dollars in to be counted as votes. $1 equals one vote
2. The night of the event attendees will have two chances to vote for their favorite contestant by purchasing “vote” tickets, 1 ticket for a $1 or 10 tickets for $5. There will be collection containers for each contestant that attendees can put their “vote” tickets into. The two times to vote will be at the beginning of the event, before the show starts and during intermission when the “ladies” will be out in force working the room for donations.

The votes will be counted and used to determine the winnner and runners up.

No donation is too small or too large!
All proceeds go to the Chester Community Fund, supplying our neighbors in need
with fuel, food and basic everyday necessities.Thank you!


Tickets are $35 and may be purchased in advance at:

The Hammered Edge, Chester Package Store and The Villager

or at the door. Please note there are a limited number of tickets, so get them early!

Your support will raise money for the Chester Community Fund.
Thank you.
