Cumberland Valley Mini-THON announced the ten contestants for the annual Man Pageant. The ten senior guys are Hunter Allen, Nick Armbrust, Jacob Burkhart, Baraka Chanka, Gavin Conklin, Quinn Haverstick, Travis O’Keefe, Aiden Rimmer, and Luke Snyder. At this moment in time, no official date has been announced for the event itself, however the boys are vigilantly preparing so they are show-time ready..

Before the announcement, the guys had to go through an interview process so the Special Events Co-Chairs, Overalls, and Advisors could select the best young men to represent CV Mini-THON.

“I applied to be a part of Man Pageant after seeing the 2020 show. I’ve been to two Mini-THONs but never got onto a committee or raised any funds, but Man Pageant seemed like an amazing and enjoyable experience that would allow me to contribute to a cause greater than myself,” Allen said.

Every guy that was selected for the show demonstrated a passion for the cause, as well as a good-natured spirit that would represent themselves and Four Diamonds well. As the Man Pageant is a prominent event within the Cumberland Valley Community, it is important that Mini-THON is represented by young men like these seniors who embody the spirit of FTK.

The Man Pageant guys are preparing their talents while the Leadership Team awaits permission to move forward with in-person practices. The guys are practicing their wide range of talents at home, like playing the oboe or acting out the steps to wilderness survival. Very soon, the senior guys will also be learning their Man Pageant dance, which is used to start each show and kick off the FTK spirit. The guys are also fundraising and drawing awareness for the event despite the uncertainty of it even happening.

“I saw each year the comradery and friendships that came from the group of guys which made me definitely want to be involved. As of now I have my goal set at $18,000, it is a bit high but why not try my best to accomplish it,” Rimmer said.

Just as Rimmer is practicing and creating new methods of fundraising for the event, all the involved contestants are putting in new levels of creativity to make the 2021 Man Pageant a never-before-seen success. With the new use of live-stream technology, the increased preparation time, and the innovative new fundraising techniques, the Man Pageant guys are determined to excite the CV Mini-THON community with their show.
