2019-2020 Royalty Contest

Behold, the annual Royalty Contest!  This is the chance for you to become true Royalty of the Abominable while raising money for the Endowment.  And, it’s a chance for Friends of the Abominable to get in on the fun by supporting their favorite candidate!!

Up for grabs are three titles: King, Queen, and Royal Pain in the Ass.  The candidate who raises the most funds gets to choose the title they most desire… second-highest fundraiser chooses from the remaining two titles… and third-highest fundraiser receives the remaining title.  The goal of the Royalty Contest is to raise $5,000.

Royalty candidates will be accepted NOW through the evening of December 17, 2019, when the money will be collected, tallied, and winners revealed during the Abominaball.  Contact any member of the Endowment board to throw your name in the hat as a candidate — no previous experience or band membership required.

Want to join me in supporting a good cause? I’m raising money for Seed & Feed Marching Abominable Endowment Inc and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps.

Since I am an Elvis impersonator, I am running to be the KING!! Thank you! Thank you, very much!

Each year the Seed & Feed Marching Abominable Endowment raises donations to support the Band and music programs in our community through the Seed & Feed Royalty Contest. This year I am running for Queen of the Band to complete my life goal of winning back the title that was stolen from me during the Poultry Princess Contest in 1971.

Please consider joining my campaign this year. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps.

Hi, I’m Chris. 😁 I am a super awesome, always smiling kind of guy. I am brand new at Seed & Feed this season and while I have been in other bands and still perform with other bands, I can tell you: I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it! So now I am part of both the gay band in town and the gayest band in town… you figure out which one is which.

You know I got what it takes and nobody better at stirring up trouble than the new guy, right? Vote for me — with your wallet — and I promise a wave and a kiss from my royal throne at the Inman Park Parade this spring.

I want to give back to this community who has welcomed me and made me feel at home since day 1 AND in turn contribute to their cause of spreading music and joy through the world (starting with Atlanta). For this reason, I am running for Royal Pain in the Ass. That’s right! That’s a thing!
