Alpha Gamma Delta sorority members are to host their annual Mr. UPJ pageant at 7p.m., April 10 in the Cambria Room.
Junior Kathleen Blough, an Alpha Gamma Delta member, said she will be an escort and speaker at the event.
Proceeds from the event go to the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, which helps diabetes patients.
Blough said there are 14 participants, which is a higher number than past years in which there are usually no more than 10.
She said two weeks before the show there is to be a Penny Wars competition.
UPJ community members will be able to put pennies in a jar for their favorite candidate, to raise more money for the foundation.
The Penny Wars result is used to crown the Spirit Award champion during the competition.
Blough said there are four parts to the competition; sportswear, talent and formalwear, as well as an interview portion.
The competition has been held in the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center in the past, but it has been moved to the Cambria Room.
