Relay Team Focuses on Fashion, Comedy in Peaches 'n' Creme Fundraiser

These models are man enough to sport women’s clothing for charity.

More than a dozen male models have volunteered to participate in the Peaches~N~Crème Fashion Show and Comedy Hour, which will be held from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Friday, May 13, at The Palace Theatre, 2 E. Main St., Lockport. Doors will open at  6 p.m.

The family-friendly event will feature the “MANgels” showing off women’s styles from Maurice’s in Lockport in a comedy-type atmosphere. Shannon Steele of KISS 98.5 will serve as the host, and Nick Siracuse of the Tonight Show will perform his stand-up routine. A basket raffle, 50/50 split, cash bar and refreshments also will be available.

The event is a fundraiser for team “Maurices Angels,” which will participate in this year’s Relay for Life of Lockport on June 18 at Emmet Belknap Middle School. The team hopes to raise a good deal of money, so members felt a gala event would help with that goal.

“This is a fundraiser close to our hearts,” team member Renee Zapp said. “Each of us has been touched by cancer; we all want to fight to find a cure.”

Tickets are $10 presale or $15 at the door and are available at Maurice’s, Home Depot Plaza, Caruso’s Hair Salon, Peer Plumbing and Heating, all in Lockport, and from Relay team members and the MANgels.
