The crown. The sash. The glory.
Mr. Westfield is an event run by the Class of 2017 in junction with the Class of 2019. Ten contestants including some returning members are representing different residential halls and class years. All are participating to become Westfield State University’s next Mr. Westfield and all have their eyes on the prize.
At the pageant there will be a talent portion, a formal wear category, and a Q&A with the contestants. President of the Class of 2017, Andrew Morin, didn’t reveal all the details beforehand, but he did give a couple hints of what we might see.
“We’re adding a twist this year, and it will involve the audience more in the selection process of our next crowned winner.”
The cost of admittance will be $3 for students and $5 general admission. This event is a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, so all proceeds will go directly towards this organization. During intermission children from Make-A-Wish will come around the audience collecting donations, so be sure to bring your spare change.
You can attend Mr. Westfield on Saturday, April 23 at 8 p.m. on Dever Stage in Parenzo Hall. What better occasion to kickoff the end of the year than watching your fellow male students strut their stuff to impress a live audience?
