SPECIAL GUESTS

The 20187 Beach Revue not only features 40 beautiful bathing beauties, but also a great lineup of judges, emcees and guests!

EMCEE

ALICIA CAHILL

Returning for her eighth year as emcee, Alicia Cahill brings her quick wit and vintage style to this year’s Revue! An “Islander By Choice” herself, Alicia arrived in Galveston in 1996 to attend Texas A&M University at Galveston. After graduating she couldn’t imagine giving up island life and decided to put down roots. Alicia is the owner of The Kitchen Chick, a boutique kitchen wares store in downtown Galveston that offers gourmet-caliber tools and accessories. Prior to that Alicia worked for the City of Galveston as their Public Information Officer and spokeswoman. When she is not busy running her business you can usually find her in the kitchen, cooking up something incredible!

JUDGES

SUMMER
SANDERSON

Summer is our reigning Miss Bathing Beauty 2018! Hailing from Beaumont, Summer swept the judges attention at last year’s revue and will be bringing her contestant experience to this year’s event. She loves Galveston’s unique character and the “in the moment” feeling that still respects it’s historic past.

DENISE
ALEXANDER

We take pride in our history, which is why there’s always a seat for a rep of Galveston Historical Foundation. This year, that honor goes to Denise Alexander, Chief of Museums and External Relations. A longtime supporter of the event, she’s ready to put pen to paper as she decides our 2018 winner!
