Brian Cagle, of Beverly Hanks and Associates, Dan Fangmeyer, Tim Freeman, of Haywood Builders Supply, Dr. Michael Hogan, of Blue Ridge Chiropractic, and Preston Tinsley, of the Gateway Club were the competition for the Man of the Year fundraiser.

REACH of Haywood County raised a grand total of about $39,000 at its first annual Man of the Year gala benefit last week at Laurel Ridge Country Club. During the mock pageant, five local men strutted their stuff on the red carpet, answered on-stage questions and performed during a talent show, all while raising money for REACH to fight domestic violence. Tim Freeman, operations manager at Haywood Builders Supply and husband of Julia Freeman, executive director of REACH, won the competition.
