Mr. Habitat Event

Tuesday, September 14, 2021 | 5:30 - 9 p.m.

Peace Lutheran Church, 1710 N. North Road

Our eleventh annual Mr. Habitat competition will pit our five Mr. Habitat contestants against one another in a fun, good-natured fundraising competition. The contest culminates in our Mr. Habitat pageant on Tuesday, September 14th, where our five contestants will compete in the categories of Formal Wear, Beach Wear, and Talent. Who will be the victor when the dust settles? It's up to you!

The Mr. Habitat event is a dinner, pageant, dessert auction, and raffle all rolled into one. This fun evening is made possible by volunteers and sponsors like you! If you are interested in making salads or desserts or donating to the event, please contact Stephanie at 308-385-5510.


Thank you to this year's Mr. Habitat Event Sponsors!
