Womanless beauty pageant raises money for the American Heart Association

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A group of special “ladies” showed off their talents and strutted their stuff to raise money for a good cause.

Coliseum Northside Hospital hosted its first ever “Womanless Beauty Pageant” Monday night at the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon. Men dressed as women, including wearing high heels, stockings, and dresses. They are part of the hospital’s nursing staff, leadership team, and doctors.

41NBC’s Amanda Castro helped judge the event. The pageant included a question and answer portion as well as a talent part.

Hospital officials say this was a fun way to raise money and awareness for the American Heart Association.

“Everyone is touched by heart disease,” Kim Mancin with the Coliseum Northside Hospital Orthopaedic & Spine Institute said. “I have a father who had a heart attack and several months later my mom had a stroke. So its so important that we raise money and that we touch the community with it.”

The American Heart Association is hosting the Central Georgia Heart Walk Thursday, September 25 at Tattnall Square Park in Macon. It starts at 5:30 p.m. There is no registration fee but you are asked to raise money or make a donation.
