Karaoke For Big Brother & Big Sisters Aug 18

Warm up your vocal chords and get ready for a night of karaoke and fun to help raise money for Big Brother Big Sisters of North Central Arkansas on Saturday, August 18th at 2485 Harrison Street (the former location for Aaron’s Furniture next to Jonathan’s Fine Jewelry). 
 Citizens Bank is proud to present this year’s event and invites you to take part as a sponsor, contestant or patron!  The Karaoke theme this year is “Totally 80’s”.   Remember big hair bands like Poison and Def Leppard?  Did you own a Rubix Cube, Swatch Watch or Atari?  If so, this year’s karaoke event is for you.  Karaoke contestants are encouraged to impersonate an 80’s artist.   “We urge everyone attending to go “back to the future” with us and dress in 80’s attire, get a group together to come as an 80’s band, movie or tv cast or show off your best mullet”, says Amanda Roberts, Development Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Central Arkansas. “We want to create a retro 80’s atmosphere that is totally 80’s and totally rad”. 

 Karaoke For a Cause is an evening of competition, great food, silent and live auctions.  The 2012 event will have two categories of competition:  the soloists’ category and group category will allow individuals or duets, quartets and the like to compete.  At the event, each performer or group raises money as they perform.  The audience donates money to the performer or group of their choice during the night’s competition.   The contestant bringing in the most cash receives the BBBS Karaoke Traveling Trophy.   Contestants can begin raising money as soon as they enter the competition through online fundraising. 

 Karaoke competitor packets are available by calling 612-8888.  Sponsorships opportunities are still available and anyone wanting to donate to the live or silent auctions is encouraged to do so by August 15th.  Tickets to the event are $40.00 per person which includes your meal and the show.  To sponsor a singer(s), get sponsorship information, purchase tickets, or to learn more about BBBS contact the Batesville BBBS Office at 870-612-8888 or email amanda@bigbrothersbigsistersnca.org.  Become a fan of Karaoke for a Cause by visiting our facebook page at www.facebook.com/events/list#!/KaraokeForACauseBbbs.
