Guys Dress Up to Raise Money to Fight Cancer

March 15, 2013

An event to raise money to fight cancer with men dressed to impress.

The "Guys In Gowns" pageant took place in Fluvanna County on Thursday.

All the proceeds from the show benefited American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.

People could donate, or shop and refreshments.

Andi Cumbo, an organizer for the pageant, says the event fights cancer while keeping a sense of humor.

"One of the things about cancer is it's very sad and it brings a lot of grief," said Cumbo. "So when we can have a good time and raise money to fight it we try to do that as much as we can."

Fluvanna's Relay for Life takes place this spring.
