ORANGEVALE CA - Casa Roble High School gymnasium was rumbling with cheers as 10 senior male contestants vied for the first title of Mr. Casa Roble on Thursday, April 12. The event was planned and executed by students Lily Goodell and Courtney Hill, for their 2012 senior project. The Mr. Casa Roble event wasn?t just handing out crowns; it was giving back to a worthy cause. The event raised more than $1,000 from admission sales and Mr. Charitable donations which was donated to the Keaton Raphael Memorial, a non-profit organization located in Roseville, that supports children with cancer and their families by providing emotional, educational, and financial support, while increasing awareness and funding research toward a cure. The event consisted of four different rounds where contestants had to showcase their favorite sportswear, swim wear, talent and formal wear while answering questions about their experience at Casa Roble High School and their plans for the future. The contestants were battling to win the titles of Mr. Casa Roble, Mr. Congeniality, which was determined within the contestants themselves, and Mr. Charitable, which was determined by who raised the most donations. Lily and Courtney created the entire event, from d?cor, event scripts and timelines, judging process, volunteer management to the overall day-of event execution. Nate Baley was crowned Mr. Congeniality, Tyler Anderson was Mr. Charitable and Jordan White was crowned Mr. Casa Roble.
