On April 13th at 7:30 pm, the Avalon Theatre will be alive with the sounds of music, but the people on stage won’t be singing. For their second installment of the Concert 4 Shelter series, Talbot Interfaith Shelter (TIS) is hosting a Lip Sync Battle to raise money for their shelter and transitional housing program. The event is presented by Wells Fargo Advisors’ Easton Branch, and is sure to be a hilarious and fun time for the whole family.
TIS has gathered individuals and teams from all over the community to duke it out in a Lip Sync battle royale for the ages. The contestants include TIS Executive Director Julie Lowe, Mike Endzel of Johnny Bling, Team Eastern Shore Brewing, Rob Pierce of Pierce Home Builders, Team Shore United Bank, students from The Country School HOHO (Helping Others, Helping Ourselves) Advisory Group, and Team BAAM (Building African American Minds). These brave souls have been preparing for weeks to perform their hearts out and compete to see who can raise the most money for the shelter.
Adding to the fun will be co-hosts Laurie Forster, also known as The Wine Coach, and local musician and shelter board member Jayme D. The always entertaining DJ Groundhog will be on stage providing the soundtrack to this unforgettable night. If you want to support your favorite contestant, there are many ways to “vote”:
• Buy a ticket to the show. The night of the event, your ticket will be your ballot, and the $27 purchase price will go towards helping your team-of-choice win. As a bonus, just by purchasing your ticket, you will also be providing a “win” for a man, woman or child in need in our community by covering the cost of shelter, food, and services for one day!
• If you’re attending the show, come early and come hungry! The incredible Eat Sprout will be providing light fare, snacks and beverages, and every dollar you spend on food will be counted as a vote for your contestant!
• Make an online donation. If you can’t attend the show, or just want to help push your contestant over the edge, you can vote by making an online donation to TIS.
