Mr. BC: Boulder Creek High School pageant showcases talented seniors while raising money for charity
Boulder Creek High School pageant showcases talented seniors while raising money for charity.
The Mr. BC pageant returns to Boulder Creek High School on April 26. The annual charity event features 12 well-known male seniors taking the stage for an evening of fun, lighthearted performances.
In addition to being a rousing school-spirited event, Mr. BC participants get the community involved by soliciting funds for charity. This year, the event benefits local Daisy Mountain firefighters, specifically the families of fallen or injured members. Previous beneficiaries have included Little Kids Rock, which works with low-funded schools to bring them money and instruments to aid their music programs and Halo Animal Rescue, a no-kill facility that provides refuge to pets.
Contestants vie for various titles including Mr. Generous, awarded to the participant who raises the most money by going around the community in the time leading up to the event to solicit donations. Meanwhile, during the pageant, audience members are encouraged to donate and crown one of the contestants as Mr. Popular.
The public is invited to join in the Mr. BC festivities, which start at 7 p.m. Tickets may be purchased for $10 each at the BCHS auditorium on the evening of the event.
