On April 29, 2011, Liberty High School’s Leadership Class presented the 19th Annual Mr. Liberty competition. This show was a success due to the support of the Liberty community and Brentwood community at large. This event could not have been possible without the support and donations of many local businesses and individuals. On behalf of the Leadership program, I would like to thank the following:
His and Hers Formal Wear has generously donated the tuxes of the Mr. Liberty contestants for the last five years. The kindness and generosity of Annette Beckstrand and her staff goes above and beyond the expectation throughout the school year. We truly appreciate their support.
Diggers Diner sponsored the Mr. Liberty breakfast again this year. The management and staff at Diggers opened their doors to us at 7 a.m. and provided an unmatched service and attentiveness. This year they have supported our Homecoming Court, Liberty Idol and Mr. Liberty breakfasts, proving that they truly have “Lion Pride.”
Contra Costa Floral Design & Gifts and Good Scents Florists generously donated all flowers for the evening’s event, including bouquets for the winners, coordinators and crew. Their donation served to lessen the financial strain of our event, and for this we are truly grateful.
Ace Hardware donated the paint for our backdrop, and continues to be a strong supporter of not only the Leadership program but of Liberty High School in general. Thank you.
Finally, we would like to thank the following businesses for their donation of gifts for the various winners within the Mr. Liberty competition. As a result of their donation, we were able to donate all funds raised to the Student Emergency Relief (SERF) Fund. Thank you to Boardwalk Bar and Grill, Brentwood Auto Spa, Brentwood Hand Car Wash, Byron Inn Café, Extreme Pizza, Harvest Park Bowl, Loard’s, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Safeway, Straw Hat Pizza, and Yogurt Pizzazz.
The following individuals and businesses helped to ensure the success of Mr. Liberty 2011. Without their hard work, support and diligence, we would not have had such a positive event. Thank you to Oak Tree Screenprinting for the production of the Mr. Liberty shirts; Prestige Press for the production of the Mr. Liberty tickets; Maddy Benner and Katelyn DiGiorgio, who choreographed the group dance; the Mr. Liberty technical crew, including Hayley Axel, Morgan DuPee, Toni Vargas, Taylor Miller, Emma Holmes, Zac Friedman and Hanna Johnson.
Finally, I’d like to thank our MCs for the evening: John Romeis and Beth Decker. John and Beth help to make Mr. Liberty what it is. Their wit, humor and candor make the night a memorable one.
I hope that the community of Brentwood enjoyed this year’s Mr. Liberty and will continue to join us in the years to come. It is a tradition that binds this community together and raises money for local students and families, which is essential in these tough economic times.
