DAY 029 Cynthia Mahner photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP). 

It was after Katrina when Jesse and Kerrie renovated that I first came to the Hall. I had a friend Ken Murphy who was on the board and he invited us to a few things and I was president of the Arts and we decided to have the Tarts and Tramps gala here for a fundraiser. That is how burlesque started for the Arts Hancock Country. Then we did another year and a lot of women wanted to be part of it and so then it evolved into the Raw Oyster Marching Club. The burlesque dancing freed my soul and it was a magical moment at the Hall.
