All hands on Duck! “Applause For The Cause” Black Duck Karaoke 25 Year Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser

Posted by Leigh Henry on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 5:58 PM

This year marks the 25th anniversary of our weekly Tuesday karaoke show at the Black Duck Café.   “Eat, drink, sing, go nuts – not necessarily in that order!” has been our motto and we’ve sure done a boatload of that in the past 25 years!   To celebrate this milestone we’ve teamed up with the American Cancer Society (ACS)/Relay For Life for a karaoke fundraiser with a goal of raising $10,000 to help save lives and support cancer victims.  And we need your help!   

Here’s our plan and here’s how you can participate or support us:

The event will be held on two consecutive Tuesdays,  June 13 and 20, at the Black Duck, 9:00 to 12:30

June 20  “Sing-a-Thon”:

This  night will feature four time slots per hour over a three hour period.   Each time slot will allow the team leader three songs to sing (up to 15 minutes total)

Become a Team Leader:

The team leader will set a goal of raising $500 in donations.   Donations can be made directly to their team through the ACS/Relay “Applause For The Cause” website

Team leaders can do whatever they like with their time slot - perform solo, duo or more – or donate it to another singer.   You DON’T need to be a singer to be a team leader! 

The team leader will have their own web page in which to securely solicit and keep track of donations, contact people and promote the event.  

    Or support a team leader by donating to their team! 

June 13 – “Only A Pay-Per-Tune”  

Make a $25 donation for each song you sing - or donate your song to another singer.
