October 19, 2015

OVERLAND PARK, KS (October 15, 2015) -- Max Evans won a Frank Sinatra Look-a-Like contest held today at Tallgrass Creek retirement community. The contest celebrated Sinatra's 100th birthday.

Evans moved to Tallgrass Creek from Des Moines, Iowa, and is a former farm manager and agricultural appraiser. He won bragging rights as being the day's honorary "Chairman of the Board" in Kansas.

Contest participants were George Lund, Lynn Brown, Max Evans, Dave Thomson, and Jim Graham. They sang Sinatra's hit song "Come Fly with Me."

All participants received a bottle of bourbon (Sinatra's favorite drink) and an ample supply of Tootsie Rolls (Sinatra's favorite candy).

The contest was held in conjunction with a Kansas University Osher Lifelong Learning Institute presentation "Sinatra: The Man and His Music" attended by more than 100 people.
