2023 Mr. Owosso Candidates are preparing for an UNFORGETTABLE Contest!
Mr. Owosso is an annual fundraising event for The Curwood Festival that greatly benefits local service organizations and charitable agencies throughout Shiawassee County.
The Mr. Owosso Contest Kick-Off is scheduled for May 12th, at 7pm, at the Knights of Columbus. Candidates are busy organizing fundraising events that will elevate them to victory and the title of the 2023 Mr. Owosso. Once the contest is officially kicked off, the fundraising begins.
The Contest has been a Curwood Festival tradition since 1980, when Bob Stone was the first to be crowned. Candidates commit 3 weeks of time and energy to raise as much money as possible for an area nonprofit. Various fundraising events include, dinners, parties, golf outings, concerts, 5K races, car washes, auctions and numerous other creative and fun opportunities to raise money.
Candidates and their teams design and proudly wear campaign t-shirts to build spirit, support and generate awareness for their cause. The true spirit of generosity is revealed throughout the entire contest experience.
The culmination of the event is at the Curwood Beer Tent at Sidelines on June 3rd at 6pm. The Contest Finale has candidates entertaining the crowd with talent and swimsuit contests, as well as a formal interview. Once the final tally has been completed the 2023 Mr. Owosso will be crowned.
Contest organizers are Joe Petersen (1992) and Joe Holden (2010). For contest information see the Curwood Festival website or call Joe Petersen at 989-277-6860.
