Mr. Amador competition offers fun, entertainment tonight at high school gym

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

Sophomore to senior boys will show off their dance and fashion talents tonight at Amador Valley High School's 5th annual Mr. Amador Showcase.

Taking place at 7 p.m. tonight in the school gym, students have organized the show to raise money for the Stanford Oncology Center. In years past, the event has raised 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.

What a great event! It is so nice to see students working so hard to raise money for charity. I have had the honor of having these kids rehearse at my house, and I have to say, they are an amazing group of kids. Pleasanton should be proud! Come on out tonight and support the "good" that these Pleasanton kids are doing. They have all worked many hours to put this show together, along with all of their "advisors". :)
