Mz. Judged returns for another year

Northern Society for Domestic Peace searching for new contestants.

The Mz. Judged pageant is back for 2014.

The Northern Society for Domestic Peace, in conjunction with the Hudson Bay Lodge, will hold the third, bi-annual Mz. Judged pageant this November.

The competition features men that will dress in drag and strut their stuff in eveningwear and bathing suits. They will also have to impress the judges during the talent competition.

“We are hoping for a great turnout and hoping to put on a great event,” organizer Carol Seychuk said.

“We want to thank our past contestants and encourage new people to come out, have some fun and do something positive for their community.”

2012 winner Cache Harris, aka ‘Boom Boom Raven,’ will be judging the upcoming event.

“It’s a great cause for a local society,” Harris said. “And I’ve never laughed that hard in my life.”

Harris won with his Evolution of Dance talent.

Tickets will go on sale later in the year. This time around they will be limiting the amount each person can buy.

“It was very popular last time and we sold out really quickly,” Seychuk said. “People bought in huge quantities and some people weren’t able to get any.”

Seychuk hopes the event will raise somewhere between $25,000 and $50,000. The last event raised $30,000.

The society is now accepting applications for contestants.

All proceeds from the event support programs that address domestic violence in Smithers.
