LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - There are few things in life more essential than food. Sadly, in our community 1 in 5 children have no idea where their next meal is coming from or when their next chance to eat will come. While the thought of a child going hungry is morally unsettling, we at "A Recipe to End Hunger" realize there is an answer to this problem. We can end childhood hunger in this community.
In 2015 you may have helped us by contributing a recipe to our first "A Recipe to End Hunger" cookbook. We raised almost $30,000 in our first year of fighting childhood hunger with your help. When you support our efforts to feed children here in our community, 100% of the funds collected will go to the support of weekend food backpack programs in the city.
Our very first cookbook was a best seller on Amazon. It featured 55 different restaurants and businesses in our area as well as 66 local and national celebrity recipes. It is 164 colorful pages of good food and handy tips in the kitchen.
We now invite you to join us in our efforts to help solve childhood hunger one meal at a time as we raise funds with the "Sing for their Supper" Community Karaoke and Lip Sync Battle thanks to support from Kosair Charities. Everyone is invited to come sing their favorite song in a karaoke square-off while competing for grand prizes provided by local businesses. The first prize in the karaoke contest is a Doo-Wop Shop VocoPro DVX-890K karaoke machine including 2 wired microphones. Karaoke competitors will also have a chance to be the Community Champion by collecting as many votes as they can in the form of dollars. One dollar equals one vote.
Local celebrities will be on hand for the most exciting showdown of the century with the Celebrity Lip Sync Battle. They will wow the crowd with costumes, props and friends to enhance the show. It will be a showdown of cataclysmic proportions! "Sing for their Supper" is June 25th at PLAY Theater at 1101 East Washington Street in Butchertown. The doors open at 6pm. You must register to participate in the karaoke contest. First come, first sing. The evening will not only be a night of fun and fellowship, but it will bring us one step closer to solving childhood suffering one meal at a time. We would appreciate your support. Thank you for your time and attention to this notice.
