High Stakes Karaoke Event Planning Committee Member

Save to Favorites

Canopy Center

If you’re a music lover, you’re in for a treat with Canopy Center’s high-stakes karaoke night! Stand Up and Sing for Kids is an annual event featuring performances by local celebrities as well as members of the audience. Enter your friends in the karaoke drawing, but be careful! If you don’t have your karaoke insurance, you might be next up on stage.

Even if you’re more of a behind-the-scenes type, this is a fun and entertaining event with a live and silent auction, hearty hors d’oeuvres, and a decadent dessert buffet. Beyond all of that it also serves a very important purpose. The proceeds from the event benefit the Canopy Center, an agency focused on child abuse treatment and prevention that serves over 500 people annually.

As a member of the Stand Up and Sing for Kids event planning committee, you would be contributing to the organizational and fundraising tasks leading up to the event, which are critical to its success and Canopy Center's funding. There will also be opportunities to provide support on the night of the event.
