AROUND TOWN ❖ HUNKS IN HEELS Photos by Rick Barbero Local men from across the area slipped on their most fabulous pair of high heels and strutted across the stage at the Beckley Moose Club as part of the 6th annual Hunks in Heels competition. The event was a joint fundraiser for the local chapter of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life and The Register-Herald and Bluefield Daily Telegraph's Newspapers in Education (NIE) program, which offers newspapers to southern West Virginia classrooms for educators to use in their curriculums. TJ Salango was named Mr. Hunks in Heels, as he raised the most money for the event. Beckley Newspapers Circulation Director Ernie Horn said the event raised approximately $20,000 after expenses. 70 ❖ SOUTH ❖ APRIL-MAY '19
