Public Lottery To Be Held For Drake University’s 35th Annual Beautiful Bulldog Contest
DES MOINES, Iowa – Drake University will host a public lottery on Tuesday, March 25 to select 50 contestants and five alternates for its 35th Annual Beautiful Bulldog Contest.
Nearly 80 English bulldogs are in the running for this year’s lottery, all in hopes of being crowned the official mascot of the 2014 Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee. With names like Nugget, Linus the LoveBug, Roxie, Sugar Blossom, Blue Boy Biggie “Smallz,” and Titus Maximus, this year’s contest is already full of personality.
The lottery will start at 6 p.m. on the Pomerantz Stage in Drake’s Olmsted Center (2875 University Ave.). Huckleberry, the reigning 2013 Beautiful Bulldog and Drake Relays mascot, will be present for the lottery, showing off his cape and crown. For those that can’t attend the lottery, it will be available via a live online stream at www.GoDrakeBulldogs.com
The lucky lottery winners will advance to the official Beautiful Bulldog Contest on Monday, April 21 at the Drake University Knapp Center. Judging will begin at 10:30 a.m. with the pageant to follow at noon.
Drake University is proud to partner with several rescue organizations this year for the Beautiful Bulldog Contest. Eleven of the 2014 registrants are Bulldog rescues.
