Mr. Legs is a parody a beauty pageant featuring male contestants in ridiculous costumes and shorts. Participants romp the runway in crazy getups, collecting laughter and tips for Bridge House/Grace House. The contestant that raises the most funds the most through ticket sales, sponsors and donations is appointed Mr. Legs.
Men of all ages dressed themselves in wacky attire and strutted their stuff on the runway for a wild crowd of several hundred. Each contestant raised pledges before the event to support Bridge House/Grace House. Additionally, the event featured a silent auction, a raffle, music and an open bar. Heather Evans and Karen Tipton chaired the event this year.
The mission of Bridge House/Grace House is to provide gender-specific treatment to men and women who have become dependent on alcohol or drugs so that they may lead sober and productive lives. Long-term residential services are offered in an atmosphere that promotes dignity, honor and respect. These services are offered regardless of one’s ability to pay.
