Spotlight: Local lovelies strut their stuff to fight cancer

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — With music like Van Halen’s “Beautiful Girl” or ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” blaring and stage lights pulsing, the fourth annual Peaches n’ Crème Fashion Show welcomes nearly two dozen lovelies to compete for the coveted title of Miss Peaches n’ Crème. When the lights go on at Lockport’s Palace Theatre on the evening of May 10, an array of dazzling fashions will be modeled by some enthusiastic, fashion conscious, talented local … men.

Teams taking part in American Cancer Society Relay For Life at Lockport have come up with some creative fundraising ideas, but this one took on a life of its own.

This is the fourth year for the hugely popular show, which gets bigger and better every year. WKBW Channel 7’s Rachel Elzufon returns as the guest emcee for an evening of fashion, talent, music, raffles and fun to support the programs and research of the American Cancer Society.

Judging has changed a bit this year. Audience vote will determine the finalists and two celebrity judges will make the final selection. “We welcome WKBW’s Tiffany Lundburg and WYRK’S Clay Moden to the judge’s chairs,” said organizer Anne Scinta LaSota.

Maurice’s Angels have had a Relay team for five years. Three years ago, they had to come up with a major fundraiser on short notice. Good friend Jay Zimmerman, of the Cat Hair Brownies team, provided inspiration. “I looked at Jay and pictured him in a dress for the cause, and immediately thought of doing something really funny and unique. I ran the idea to have a fashion show by the team and everyone loved it,” LaSota said. “Surprisingly, we were able to round up 17 men and 25 competed last year.” A regular feature at the June Relay event is the Miss Relay Contest, where males dress in women’s clothes and travel the track to solicit donations to be crowned Miss Relay.
