Pharaoh of Fluff

The Pharaoh of Fluff contest is taking a break for this year in order to roar back next year for the 10th annual event in a big way. What is this anyway?  We crown each year a leader in Fluff love, someone who pledges to spread goodness across the land and unite us as fluff does unite two slices of bread.

Brian Agosta in 2011 sang and shimmied his way to glory, singing the song “September” for composer Allee Willis.

Dave Manganello, the “Whoopie Pie-rate” elected as the 2010 Fabulous Pharaoh of Fluff.




In 2010 we elected Dave Manganello by audience applause. Dave and his family, honoring that year’s theme, dressed as Whoopie Pie-rates and won everyone’s heart. Dave was crowned with the a magnificent crown creation by local masters CostumeWorks.

Cevin Soling, the 2009 Pharaoh, was on hand during the event to greet his sweet subjects and crown his successor.
