June 30, 2017

Anniston, AL :  The successful event which put the 'fun' in fundraiser returns for a second year to The Oxford Civic Center on August 19!

The Arc of Calhoun and Cleburne Counties' Lip Sync Battle promises to bring more live acts ot the stage as it riases money for the Arc' programs for people with intellectual disabilities.

The Lip Sync Battle is modeled after the popular game that began on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show before morphing into its own spin-off on Spike T.V.

The television versions feature a mix of movie and televisions stars, musicians and other celebrities facing off in lip-synched performances of popular songs.  The local version will include a similar format as the televised versions but will feature a mix of any individual or group willing to have fun and raises funds for a good cause, according to event organizer Pati Tiller.

“We wanted to give anyone and everyone who loves the Lip Sync Shows, loves to perform, loves to have fun or loves the work of The Arc a chance to participate” she says.

A $25 entry fee into the contest will give an individual or a group of up to six people an opportunity to perform and win one of three trophies;  Judges Pick, Audience Favorite and Top Fundraiser.  Audience members will have an opportunity to get in on the act by literally buying votes for their favorite performers for one dollar each.

The event begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for children ages 12 and under and adults aged 65 and over.

All monies raised for the Lip Sync Battle will be used to suppor The Arc’s programs for individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities in Calhoun and Cleburne Counties.  A 501 (C)3  non-profit agency, The Arc provides such programs as Special Olympics. Family Advocacy, Training and Recreational Activities, Art Programs and other supports to individuals with I/DD and their families.
