First Annual Mr. Lionette Pageant Will Benefit THON

Calling all males who have ever wanted to join the Lionettes and their famous kick line, we come bearing good news: Now is your chance to become an honorary member of the team. This Sunday, November 15, the Lionettes are hosting the first annual Mr. Lionette Pageant, with all proceeds benefitting THON.

The pageant will include an interview, a Penn State wear portion, and a dance routine, but don’t worry — the jump-split isn’t required. The winner of the pageant will receive a crown, a gift card, Lionettes gear, a chance to performa with the team, and the honor of being named the first Mr. Lionette.

The event will be held in the HUB’s Alumni Hall and will begin at 7:30 p.m. The participation fee is $10 and admission is $7, 100 percent of which will be donated to THON. The Lionettes will be selling tank tops and calendars at the event and the Penn State Cheerleading team will be selling bows, the proceeds of which will also be donated FTK.

There will also be guest appearances by Mike the Mailman, the Nittany Lion, and the Penn State Cheerleaders. Come on out to see who takes the first ever Mr. Lionette crown, all while supporting a good cause.
