RAHWAY — On the evening of April 28, Rahway High School’s Blue Tri Club sponsored its annual benefit, the King of Hearts, in order to raise funds for the Olympic Day for Special Needs Children, an event held annually in Rahway during the month of May.
Senior class gentlemen were volunteer participants in this event; the incentive was for the winner’s prom bid to be paid in full. During the show, these gentlemen competed in three categories: Tuxedo Modeling, Talent and a Question/Answer Session.
In the modeling portion, the seniors were judged on their modeling skills as well as the quality and originality of the autobiographies that were read as the contestants were introduced in their tuxes. The Forum, located on St. George’s Avenue in Rahway, has provided the tuxedos each year for the event.
During the Question/Answer Session, the participants all answered two questions, including one that was identical for all of them and known ahead of time. That question was “Of all your memories at Rahway High School, what is your most memorable and why?” The other question was pulled from the crown for each contestant, requiring each participant for an extemporaneous answer and showing how well he could think on his feet.
The judges assessed the talents and the answers to the two questions that had been asked during the Q/A session to determine who would become the King of Hearts. This year’s winner was Daniel Vargas. Judges were two parents of Rahway High School students, Donna Farrell and Cindy Zatorski, and Annie Peters
