Football players to dress like girls for fundraiser
Placeholder Image

The Warren County High School football team will be getting in touch with its feminine side while competing in a Womanless Beauty Pageant this Friday, Nov. 16, in the WCHS auditorium.
The boys will go all out by wearing dresses and high heels in order to raise money for Chelsea Clark, who has been diagnosed with osteosarcoma, commonly called bone cancer.
All proceeds from the pageant and the preceding soup and chili supper will go to Chelsea, sister of high school football player Josh Clark. Chelsea is the daughter of Tom and Vickie Clark.
Chelsea had surgery at the end of October to remove a five-inch tumor from her left arm. The surgeons also removed a one-inch margin of bone close to the tumor that was free of cancer. Spots have been found on her lungs which doctors are monitoring. Chelsea is presently taking chemotherapy.
Zech Clark will be wearing a pink sparkly dress because his dad signed him up to compete. “I’m not thrilled about walking around in a dress, but my dad said it’s for a good cause,” said Zech.
The cheerleaders will also switch gears and dress up like guys in order to be escorts.
This is the second Womanless Beauty Pageant. According to Football Booster Club secretary Tabitha McKinley, last year the pageant raised over $4,000 to help fund a trip to Africa for WCHS football coach Tommy Johnson’s family to adopt a baby girl.
“We hope everyone comes this year to help support Chelsea. She is a brave little girl,” said McKinley.
The soup/ chili supper will begin at 6 p.m. in the Warren County High School cafeteria and will cost $5. The pageant will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the WCHS auditorium and will cost $2.
