Welcome to the Elmira Rotary Club Lip Sync Battle!
The Elmira Rotary Club is hosting our fifth charity event. This year’s event is modeled after Spike TV’s new hit show, “Lip Sync Battle” and the Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon’s frequent lip sync challenges. Performers (individuals or teams) select their favorite song and perform their version of it. Judges will vote on the overall best performance of the evening. The community and audience will vote to determine their top three favorites.
What will participants win?
Each performer (or team) will be eligible to win ONE of four prizes (listed below) to be given in their name to their designated charity (only one prize per performer/team).
First Prize: $1,000 to the performer (or team) who generates the highest total number of votes both online prior to and during the event.
Second Prize: $750 to the performer (or team) who generates the second highest total number of votes both online prior to and during the event.
Third Prize: $500 to the performer (or team) who generates the third highest total number of votes both online prior to and during the event.
Judges Choice Award: $1,000 prize to be determined by a panel of independent judges who will decide the overall best performance.
All performers (or teams) who do not receive one of the four prizes listed above will receive a $100 donation, to be given in their name to their favorite charity.
How Does The Community Benefit From This Event?
Thanks to our sponsors and community support, 100% of the proceeds from Elmira Rotary Lip Sync Battle will go directly to help serve local and international service projects of the Elmira Rotary Club. The bulk of the money is invested right here in our own community. All performers (or teams) will be competing to benefit their chosen charity.
Over 50 different local charities and community service projects have benefited from our previous fundraising efforts. Some of those past charities and projects include: Health Ministry of the Southern Tier, Community Kitchen, Children’s Miracle Network, Southern Tier Hospice, The Glove House, American Cancer Society, Able2, EOP, Autism Speaks, Wounded Warriors, Arnot NICU, Chemung County Humane Society & SPCA, Diven Elementary Partnership, Camp STAR, All Kids Play Place, Susan G. Komen, Catholic Charities, YWCA playground, and many more!
