What a night! This event definitely put the “fun” in fundraiser. If you weren’t able to attend the 2012 Mr. Canine Carolina Pageant at Jillian’s, you missed an evening full of high heels, wigs, make up, and creative costumes. Ten local celebrities and pet lovers dressed as female characters and strutted their stuff to raise money for homeless pets. And boy did they strut! Before we showcase our winners, take a look at a few of the contestants:
These courageous contestants gave their all for the homeless pets. The put aside their fears and inhibitions to get in touch with their feminine side (or at least attempt it). Austral Salon helped our lovely contestants look their best before they pranced in heels, worked the crowd, and competed for the crown. They must have been inspired by the recent Miss SC Pageant. The evening was full of grace and poise……just kidding! The contestants had the more than 100 attendees roaring with laughter and applauding their efforts.
After a night of fierce competition, the contestants were narrowed down to the Top 5 for the interview portion of the pageant. Contestants Katy Hairy, Sharon Husbands, Ru Paw, Grace Ventura and Loose La-Rae answered challenging questions to show the crowd their dedication to the cause.
And the winners are……..
We appreciate all of our contestants participating in our 2012 event. Thank you for showing your compassion towards the homeless pets and helping to raise money on their behalf. Visit our Facebook page for more photos!
