CAMP Rehoboth and The Beach House Restaurant would like to thank all the individuals and businesses for their generous contributions to the fight against breast cancer. Also to Suzanne & AJ of Red Letter Day for taking a 50/50 collection at the Frogg Pond and matching the total cash raised there. Dominique Taylor did a fabulous job as auctioneer, making all the dinner datesNatalie Moss, Diana Hansen, Terri Rayne, Lynn Foraker, Mark Thompson, and myselffeel at ease on the auction block. With Tommy Walton spinning everyone's favorites, we danced the night away. We look forward to next year's event, and hope to tie it in with an annual women's weekendexploring issues such as mental and physical well beingplus the usual live and silent auction, DJ and dancing.
The Miss Gay Delaware 2000 pageant, produced by Leighanne Richards, a.k.a. Lee Cook, was a night to remember at the Renegade Resort. Contestants Maxine Chambers, Monique Lamour, Naija Dupree, and Rebecca Finn were not only stunning in their elegant evening wear, but wowed the audience with their talent and originality. With a difficult decision before them, judges Kenny Russell, Jordan Ashley, Georgiana Staley, and Sandy Thompson crowned Rebecca Finn the new Miss Gay Delaware 2000. Special performances throughout the evening were made by Christopher Peterson, Gladys Kravitz, Dominique Taylor, and Leighanne Richards.
