BENEFITING: BETTER FAMILY LIFE INC
EVENT DATE: Mar 31, 2016
Mr. Wash. U. is a charitable organization that selects 16 candidates every year to compete for the crown and title of Mr. Wash. U. As a part of the competition for the crown, these 16 candidates will fundraise as much as they can throughout the year to raise money for City Faces, a local non-profit organization. Additionally, candidates will participate in collaborative fundraisers put on by the Mr. Wash. U. Executive Council, develop stage-worthy talents and learn a number of choreographed dances throughout the year. All of these efforts will culminate in one spectacular event in March, the Mr. Wash U Show! It promises to be a fantastic show where the candidates will perform large group dances, class dances and individual talents. Before the winner is crowned, the fundraising total from combined efforts of the individual candidates and the Mr. Wash. U. Executive Council is revealed. Last year this number breached $20,000! Finally, based on their talents, credentials and fundraising, one of the candidates will be crowned Mr. Wash. U.
The Mr. Wash U show is the culminating event of all of the efforts of the Mr. Wash U Executive Council and Candidates. In the show, candidates perform two large group choreographed dances and each class year will perform a choreographed number. Intermittently throughout the show each individual candidate will perform a pre-chosen act which can include a broad range of amazing talents.
