Vote for Mr. South Whidbey soon

The seventh annual Mr. South Whidbey Pageant returns at 7 p.m., Oct. 6 at Freeland Hall. The cost is $25.

Join emcee, Sue Frause, as this year’s candidates do their best to win votes and raise money for the Friends of Friends Medical Support Fund. This year’s candidates are Christian Albright, John Auburn, Rocco Gianni, Brian Vick, Nick Welles, and Jim Wills.

The competition rules are simple: The candidate who raises the most money for Friends of Friends at the event wins.

Every dollar donated to Friends of Friends in a candidate’s name counts as one vote. And people can vote as often as they like.

A $25 ticket buys a seat at one of the most original fundraisers on South Whidbey. Advance tickets are available at Moonraker Books in Langley, and Timbuktu Java Bar and Gallery in Freeland.

Food is not being served this year at the event.

Friends of Friends Medical Support Fund is a nonprofit, medical safety net, offering financial help to South Whidbey residents with uncovered health-related expenses.

Those who need help with medical expenses or would like to donate to this locally based safety net can call 360-221-4535, or write Friends of Friends Medical Support Fund, P.O. Box 812, Langley, WA 98260.
