Kelly Donlon knows SafeNet. This past year, the crowning champion of Miss Roar on the Shore 2010, has assisted the charitable organization with numerous fundraisers geared towards supporting their Big Backyard Children’s Garden project.

“I will always be their Miss Roar on the Shore,” she said.

Watch a video of Donlon recapping her experience with the charity on our StreetView player.

Each year, Roar on the Shore collects money for a beneficiary. Last year, SafeNet’s Big Backyard Children’s Garden project received a $75,000 donation from the Manufacturer & Business Association, who organize Roar on the Shore. Over the past four years, Roar on the Shore has raised more than $250,000 for regional charitable organizations.

Lisa Dean, Miss Roar on the Shore 2011 contestant.

 

Lisa Dean almost quit the Miss Roar on the Shore competition after moving past the initial round at Coconut Joe’s.

She was told that she couldn’t ride in the parade and compete in Miss Roar on the Shore.

After “making a huge stink,” she said, she got the green light to ride.

“If I can’t do it with my bike, I said I’m not going to do it at all,” she said.

Until this year, Dean was the only licensed rider in the competition. Last year’s winner Kelly Donlon had a permit, but at the time of Roar on the Shore 2010, she hadn’t gotten her license.

Dean said she wanted to get involved for two reasons: “I thought that this should represent this generation of women riders,” she said, listing her reasons. “And the charity, Flight 93, that was huge.”

Dean rides a 250 Honda Rebel, a bike that is noticably smaller than the other bikes that surrounded her in the parade lineup.

“It fits me,” she said.

See a clip of Dean minutes off her bike from the Bringin’ in the Roar parade on GoErie.com/streetview in the Roar on the Shore video player.

Watch the Miss Roar on the Shore finals and crowning at 8:30 at the Hub at the Perry Square main stage.

Experience at Roar on the Shore last year made Rachel Timmons of Erie get involved.

“It’s not a beauty competition, it’s for a good cause,” said Timmons.

Timmons works at Presque Isle Downs & Casino as a model/cocktail waitress. “I worked it last year selling pops, and found out Roar on the Shore is this huge fundraiser.”

She said it’s fun being part of the competition.

“All the girls get along,” she said.

“Hey! It is not a beauty pageant. It is a scholarship program,” insists Sandra Bullock as undercover cop Gracie Heart in Miss Congeniality.

For Miss Roar on the Shore 2011 contestants, they say the Miss Roar competition is more than what than just a beauty pageant.

Every year, Roar on the Shore has a beneficiary, and Miss Roar on the Shore participants collect money for that cause. In 2011, Roar on the Shore benefits the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, PA. At the Bringin’ in the Roar pre-party at Presque Isle Downs & Casino, these woman collected for the Flight 93 Memorial, exchanging pins for a minimum $5 donation.

According to Raine Raven, Miss Roar 2011 contestant, Miss Roar is based on three things: judging, crowd participation, and fundraising. Finals take place at 8:30 downtown at the Main Stage in Perry Square.

Let’s take a look at this year’s six contestants.

Lisa Dean, Katie Marzka, Rachel Timmons, Emilee van Scoter, Raine Raven, and Jordyn Toplovich in the running for Miss Roar on the Shore 2011.
