The Miss Mackenzie Show fundraiser attracted some stunners on Saturday night. 

Four hundred people came to see Mackenzie’s beauties on the catwalk at the sell-out event.

Heartland Services co-ordinator Anne Thomson explained the show invited men to "dress up as women and parade around in sportswear and evening gowns ".

Thomson herself sewed nun's habits for a musical act while MC for the night was senior rugby coach Justin Geary.

The evening was a fundraiser for Mackenzie College, Fairlie Primary, St Joseph’s Fairlie, Albury Primary and the Mackenzie Kindergarten.  

Last year $15,000 was raised.
