FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. -- Parents and students say the show is absolutley hilarious. It's a beauty pageant without girls.

Tough wrestlers dress up in hose, make-up and evening wear from their moms' closets. One guy even shaves his legs.

And the tough coach last year put on a little black number for the stage. This year organizers say it will be another terrific event.

You can call it guts for a cause.

The wrestlers understand breast cancer can steal away moms, grandmothers, sisters, and best friends.

One team member's mother is a breast cancer survivor.

Hats off to the guys for saving lives. 

The event is this Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center.

It begins at 7 p.m., and tickets are $6 per person, or $25 for a family.

The money will help give mammograms to women in Nassau County. Part of the proceeds will also help a student with cystic fibrosis and cover costs for the wrestling team's school activities.

Also, hats off to Southside Elementary in Fernandina Beach. The teachers wear pink on Buddy Check 12 day and pay $5 each to donate to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
