Mr. Amador competition returns April 12

Young men perform in pageant-like show to raise money for charity

Several sophomore to senior boys are busy preparing dance, talent, fashion and interview segments for the fifth annual Mr. Amador Showcase.

Taking place at 7 p.m. April 12 in the Amador Valley High School gym, students have organized the show to raise money for the Stanford Oncology Center. In years past, the event has collected between $7,000 and $10,000 for charity. Local businesses, including Fiesta Taco and ProImage Picture Studios, have also stepped up to help student achieve their fundraising goals.

Practices have been going on since February, with hopes to provide a fun and entertaining show for the entire community, senior Rachel Miller said.

Participants include sophomores Evan Gum and Gabe Scholl; juniors Robby Potter, Justin Shotwell, Patrick Gibbons and Michael Mallory; and seniors Cory Thomas, Jon Ostlund, Chris Stiles, Christian Schlacte, Clint Roach and Tunde Olayomi.

Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door. For more information, contact the school at 461-6100.
