This year the Men of the Desert Fashion Show and Charity Luncheon event has a new element.
We are introducing the (valley’s most) “Handsome Hound. ” This is a new feature added to our already exciting event supporting Animal Samaritans.
We invite you to submit a photo of your friend, boyfriend, husband, brother, father or son as a contestant to Men of the Desert Contest website.   The submitted photo must be a non-photo shopped picture of the candidate, and must include the candidate’s name, age, occupation and a working phone number.   We will be advertising the event on radio and television.

Submission will go through Go Go Photos on line contest platform.  Click below to enter the photo contest.

Each submission requires a $25.00 submission fee; submission fees support Animal Samaritans and are tax deductible. Only online submissions will be accepted, and each eligible submission will be placed online for all to view.    Each submission counts as one vote for a candidate. Online viewers may vote as many times for as many candidates as they like.  Each vote will cost $1.00.  Voting ends October 30, 2017.

The Top 3 Vote Getters will be “Man of the Desert” Finalists.  Each finalist must be available for a brief interview prior to November 5, 2017 with members of Palm Springs Life to be considered for selection as the 2017 “Man of the Desert” winner.  (these dates might change)

Prior to the event, Palm Springs Life Magazine will select one finalist among the 5 finalists as the 2017 “Man of the Desert.”  Judging for the Man of the Desert winner will be based upon a brief interview covering each finalist’s personal background (story), animal affiliations, and appearance.
