Would you like to see some of our local police officers going undercover dressed as women? Yeah, that's right! The non-profit organization "Pink Behind the Thin Blue Line" is proud to present the first ever police beauty pageant "Beauty and the Badge" hosted by yours truly, this Friday, March 10, 2017 at the Elks Lodge 4701 Garland Ave. Doors open at 6PM and the show begins at 6:30PM.

I'm sure before the night is up there will be a few laws broken -- or heels broken -- for that matter.

Detective Jason Haak's wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2010.  Although she went into remission, last year doctors discovered tumors on her brain and the cancer has now metastasized to her spine, liver and bones. She has been unable to work for about a year and is currently undergoing a clinical trial that requires a weekly trip to Houston.

"We are praying for this beautiful family and hope to help them with travel expenses they are having to endure for her to receive the treatment through this clinic trial said," Christy Pettit event organizer for (PBTTBL).

"Bowie County Sheriff's Office Deputy Russel Crawford's son was hit by a drunk driver a year ago and suffered several injuries, including a traumatic brain injury that requires him to wear a helmet until they can afford the $10,000 prosthetic plate needed to protect his brain. Without this plate any fall or hit to the head will cause death. There was no auto insurance to help with any of the families extensive medical costs. It has been a long road, but they were finally able to get him into a brain injury facility in Tyler, Texas where he will receive the care he needs for now."

The idea for a beauty pageant involving police officers came from a detective with the Miller County Sheriff's Office who wanted to do something to help out his brothers in blue.

There will also be a couple of things within the event that will benefit  the group and help  cover the expense of the pageant  There will be a silent auction, baked potato dinner and a 50/50 table where everyone who attends has chance to win a pot of money at the end of the night.

No tickets will be sold -- only donations at the door.  All of the proceeds from the door donations will benefit two local law enforcement families with medical expenses.

"We have some pretty amazing door prizes that will be given out at the end of the pageant as well.  We are hoping to see a big crowd there to show support for these officers, who have dedicated years serving our cities," said Pettit.  Not only are our officers going to entertain the crowd while they strut their stuff in heels and dresses, the Liberty-Eylau dance team will entertain us with their dance moves and Magician Darryl Miller will amaze us with his magic."
