Last Tuesday the Georgia Theatre hosted Greek students for the 7th annual Mr. Milledge pageant. Students from several University of Georgia sororities and fraternities came to support a cause.
All proceeds from the event, which was put together by Alpha Gamma Delta, went toward the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation. The foundation helps support Meals on Wheels and Feeding Athens. At the end of the evening, $10,000 had been raised for the event.
Attendees came dressed in everything from T-shirts to evening gowns. Freshman J.P. Efferth said he and his friends from Beta Upsilon Chi came out to support Nick Cho, one of the pageant’s participants.
“We’re going to be super loud and obnoxious when he is onstage,” Efferth told The Red & Black. “We’re going to go all out.”
Performer Aspen Countryman also performed numerous covers and originals for the audience.
When time came for the contestants to perform, the crowd was much larger. Each contestant was judged on three categories: best gameday outfit, best pickup line and best talent.
They would win Mr. Milledge, Mr. Congeniality or Crowd Favorite, which was determined by how many likes their post got on Alpha Gamma Delta’s Instagram account.
Some of the outfits were odd, some pickup lines were sweet and there were several musical performances for talent.
The evening concluded with the presentation of the awards. Xander Davis, representing Phi Kappa Theta, won Crowd Favorite for his memorable gameday outfit. The title of Mr. Congeniality went to Cho from Beta Upsilon Chi for his musical talent. And the title of Mr. Milledge went to Caleb Ellison from Theta Chi.
