ASK Wellness Society executive director Bob Hughes called the event an evening that will challenge gender stereotypes and misconceptions.

“ASK Wellness Society believes in the importance and value of an inclusive, compassionate, and tolerant community and all our programs and services strive to bring people together through finding our common purpose and humanity,” he said in a news release.

The event is being presented in collaboration with Kamloops Pride and will serve as a fundraiser for the creation of safe suites for women and clients in crisis — those who would otherwise be left out on the streets without food, health care or employment.

Contestants include the United Way’s Danalee Baker, Mastermind Studios’ Peter Cameron-Inglis, Nick Curnow, Laura Hsu, Michael McDonald, Adrienne Romeo, Dakota Taylor and KTW staffers Tara Holmes and Max Patel.

The show will take place Saturday, May 11, at The Rex, 417 Seymour St.

General admission tickets are $50 each and include a $25 tax receipt. Cabaret table floor tickets are $150 with a $100 tax receipt and other goodies. Tickets are available online at
