Lip sync battle returns

ELLSWORTH — The 2nd Annual Grand Mouth Off Battle 2017, a fundraising event, will be held at The Grand on Saturday, April 8, at 7 p.m.

The 2016 event was a success, raising approximately $9,000 and crowning Darling’s of Ellsworth the winners after spirited performances of “Greased Lighting” and “Runaround Sue.”

After the first year’s competition, The Grand received requests for another event. The competitors, featuring both veterans of the first year’s lip sync battle and new teams, include Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, Down East Family YMCA, Stanley Subaru and Machais Savings Bank.

There’s still room for more competitors. All Lip Sync teams will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges, and the audience can add more votes with their dollars. Special thanks to the Bangor Savings Bank Bucket Brigade for their volunteer help in collecting and tabulating the dollars/votes.

To reserve a spot in the competition, contact Kimberly Fitch at 667-9500. The first 15 to register will be guaranteed a place. Any additional businesses or individuals will be added to a wait list in case of any openings. Tickets for reserved seats cost $15 for adults and seniors, $10 for youths 12 or under.
