The 11th annual Marion County High School Beta Junior Mister competition will be at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 22, in the MCHS gymnasium.
This year's theme is "A Starry Night.” There are 18 young men in the show this year.
All proceeds for the event will go to the Make-a-Wish Foundation to grant the wish of a child. This year’s Make-A-Wish child is Madison of Greensburg. According to her bio, she loves the color pink and enjoys swimming, playing Candy Land with her family and dancing to Hannah Montana. She is recovering from a recent liver transplant, leaving her tired and frequently visiting the doctor. Despite her condition she remains positive throughout her continuing treatments.
Her wish is to visit Walt Disney World. In July, Madison’s wish came true, as she traveled with her family to Orlando, Fla. While at the park, Madison was able to eat a special lunch with the Disney Princesses and see her favorite animal, the giraffe, at Animal Kingdom.
Advance tickets to Junior Mister will be on sale for $5 at MCHS on Thursday and Friday, March 20-21, or at Kroger's service desk Saturday, March 15 to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 22. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $7.
