“There were so many great sponsors and competitors it’s hard to list them all, but Bozard Ford really stepped up; leading more than one brave guy to humble himself for a cause,” Jaime Parham, St Johns Young Republicans President said. “It really took some guts to get up and put yourself out there like that,” Parham told local reporters. “The competition was rough, they all tried their hardest to win for their charity.”
Young Professionals reported raising almost $23,000 for St. Augustine and St. Johns County charities. St Johns County Commissioner Bill McClure raised almost $10,000 for Bay View Health, and was the winner of the pageant competition.
