Leaps of Love, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving families affected by childhood cancer, will host the Ms. L.O.L. pageant in Highland this May. The pageant will feature 10 courageous men from the Highland area competing in three categories of competition: mini skirt, talent and evening gown. To help keep costs low, the organization is seeking donations. Founder and Organization President Traci Riechmann told WGEL the community can help through monetary donations but also by donating items such as flowers and decorations to help lower pageant expenses.
Riechmann said all proceeds from the pageant will help Leaps of Love advance their mission of helping families through family retreats, social events, workshops and family assistance.
The Ms. L.O.L. Pageant will be May 10 in the Highland Upper Elementary Auditorium. Tickets for the pageant are $15 each and are available for purchase at First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust in Highland. To make a donation or for more information, contact Traci at 410-7212.
