You’re Never Old – But You Can Be Wise

Aureo do Nascimento beat 21 other contestants aged 62 to 94 at the Thursday pageant sponsored by the State Health Department.

The 63-year-old Nascimento said the pageant helps older men “improve their self-esteem and overcome the prejudices others feel toward the elderly.”

Awards also were handed out for Mister Elegance, Mister Smiles and Mister Shyness by a jury of five women.
