Mr. Kaneland 2011 pageant set for Feb. 18

By on February 18, 2011

KANELAND—Mr. Kaneland 2011 will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 18, in the Kaneland High School auditorium.

The Mr. Kaneland event is a male pageant created by Kaneland Peer Leadership to raise money for the Delnor Center for Breast Health. This event has raised more than $10,000 for the Delnor Center for Breast Health since it was first held in January 2007.

Members of the 2011 Mr. Kaneland court include: Matt Berland, Michael Caballero, Joe Camiliere, Kyle Clausen, Brock Feece, Tom King, James Lim, Sam Meyer, Nathan Rehkopf, Kendall Renaud, Jake Rosko and Andrew Tobin.

Each member of the court will complete in a formalwear, talent and casual-wear segments, as well as a question-and-answer portion. Each of the contestants can earn points in these categories, but most points are earned in the fundraising category. The boys have been collecting donations around school and town to benefit the Delnor Center for Breast Health. The boy to earn the most points will be crowned Mr. Kaneland 2011.

This year’s ticket will once again be a bracelet, but it will be a thicker black band, printed with a pink Kaneland Knights. Each bracelet is $5 and allows entrance to the event and helps to support both the Knights and the Delnor Center for Breast Health.

Community members and their families are invited to join in the fun. Bracelets may be purchased from any of the Mr. Kaneland Court, members of Peer Leadership, or by contacting Beth Trafton at Beth.Trafton@

Doors to the auditorium will open at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 18, with ticket sales beginning at 6 p.m. outside the auditorium.
