Feb. 23: Mr. Healdsburg Pageant at the Raven Performing Arts Center


Far from the traditional male beauty pageant with bodybuilders and Speedos, the 10th annual Mr. Healdsburg Pageant features everyday members of the community. Each contestant creates a nickname and competes in the talent, eveningwear, beachwear and interview categories. This year’s seven finalists include 74-year-old Mr. Basso Profundo, who plans to blow the crowd away with his singing voice; Mr. Hot Stuff, who hopes to wow everyone with his winning looks; and Mr. Hotlicks, who started a Facebook campaign in attempts to seal the deal. Who will take home the plastic crown? Find out Saturday, Feb. 23, in a benefit for the Raven Performing Arts Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. 7:30pm. $40—$60. 707.433.6335.
