Miss Isis hi­lar­i­ous

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS - By MELINDA BRAD­FORD

BRAVE men got in touch with their fem­i­nine side to raise funds for the Isis Com­mu­nity Pre-school and Kinder­garten on Satur­day night.

The lo­cal lads strut­ted their stuff on the cat­walk as they took part in the hi­lar­i­ous Miss Isis 2014 Hairy Beau­ties Pageant.

Eleven con­tes­tants from the Isis district took part in the pageant, where they per­formed in front of a packed crowed at the Isis Cul­tural Cen­tre.

Fundrais­ing co-or­di­na­tor San­dra Lyons said the night had been a lot of fun and it was hoped al­most $5000 would have been raised for the kindy.

Mrs Lyons said she was hum­bled by the sup­port from the pub­lic and was grate­ful to the lo­cal lads for par­tic­i­pat­ing in the event.

“The con­tes­tants put a lot of time into per­fect­ing their char­ac­ter. It was so hum­bling to see that,” she said.

“They were all about fundrais­ing on the night.

“They prac­tised and it all paid off.”

Mrs Lyons ad­mit­ted the com­mit­tee was a bit ap­pre­hen­sive about what sort of “talent” the men would come up with, but was pleas­antly sur­prised.

“The talent that came through was re­ally ex­traor­di­nar­ily funny,” she said.

“I was re­ally overwhelmed by the ef­fort they put in.”

Mrs Lyons thanked lo­cal businesses for their con­tri­bu­tions, es­pe­cially Marry Me Coun­try-Wed­ding Hire and Sales.

“We had some hand­some do­na­tions that we weren’t ex­pect­ing, but it wasn’t just do­na­tions, it was people’s time,” she said.

“It was a nice big sur­prise that people were donat­ing their time and re­sources.”

“Twirk­ing Tammy” (Tim Kay) was crowned Miss Isis 2014 and Miss Fundraiser 2014 was awarded to “Miss M” (Sam Ed­wards).
