You can purchase your votes for your favorite Real Man candidate up to the last minute at the on-site voting booth! Cocktail attire is requested, and superhero costumes are always welcome.
HOW "REAL MEN" WORKS
Ten "Real Men" have been nominated for their dedication to family and community. They help raise awareness of the domestic violence crisis and raise money to help Safe Harbor fund critical services to the Northshore community.
Nominees "sell" votes at a contribution of $10 per vote. The nominee with the most donations to his name will be crowned the "Real Man of St. Tammany 2018" at the Gala.To view this year's candidates and vote/donate, visit the Real Men Campaign Candidates site.
