Delta Sigma Theta Sorority’s Hinesville Alumnae Chapter recently presented its beautillion 2010 fundraiser, titled, "A Man Among Men: Destined Stars of Tomorrow." The beautillion showcased eight young, black men who excel in the areas of leadership, academics, athletics and community service.
Ron Wallace, a reporter from WTOC, was the master of ceremonies. The event included a promenade and a waltz by each young man and their escorts. Hinesville Mayor James Thomas greeted the participants and Georgia Rep. Al Williams, D-Midway, welcomed the young men into society.
The highlight of the evening was the crowning of recent Liberty County High School graduate Julian Stokes as Mr. Beautillion. Stokes is the son of Allen and Patricia Stokes of Hinesville. He will attend Georgia State University this fall. Stokes also was named Mr. Debonair by his peers.
Xanthus Lee, the first runner up, was crowned Mr. Crimson and Cream.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will fund scholarships and other public service activities in the community.
The Hinesville Alumnae Chapter recently celebrated its 23rd year of public service.
