Local law enforcement officers are planning to participate in the second annual all-male Beauty and the Badge beauty pageant fundraiser to benefit Pink Behind the Thin Blue Line and several local police officers and their families.
"Come out for a fun-filled night of entertainment and shenanigans while our local officers strut their stuff in wigs, heels and dresses for a good cause," said Chasity Russell of Pink Behind the Thin Blue Line.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the show starts at 6:30 p.m. April 13 at the Elks Lodge, 4701 Garland Ave., Texarkana, Ark. Donations will be taken as an entry fee at the door. The event includes a baked potato dinner, cash bar, 50/50 raffle, door prizes, People's Choice Award and a silent auction.
Agencies involved include Texarkana, Ark., Police Department and Miller and Bowie county sheriff's offices. More contestants will be added.
Officers in need include Detective Jason and Stephanie Haak, Lt. Billy Bohannan and Officer Eric McMillan.
