Carousel Center’s 20th Anniversary of the “Making Legends Local” GALA & Lip Sync Battle is the MUST-ATTEND event of the year!

Proceeds from this event aid child survivors of abuse and neglect, and their families in the everyday work that we do, whether it is through victim support, medical services and forensic interviews, therapeutic services, case management, or a host of other activities that ensure that children who are survivors of abuse can heal, recover, thrive, and shine. Learn More About What We Do HERE

Red Carpet Reception at 6:30 pm ~ Step into the spotlight at the Red Carpet Reception and kick off an exciting evening benefitting the Carousel Center. Come dressed to impress! Attire is Black-Tie Optional, but we encourage you to draw inspiration from the 2023 Theme to be Announced in January!  Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be provided from Angie’s Catering, Sweet D’s bakery items, and beer and wine selections from Waterline Brewery and Lighthouse Beer and Wine. 

Lip Sync Battle Begins at 8:00 pm ~ You will be entertained by locals taking the stage with their best lip-sync routine and competing for the coveted 2023 Lip-Sync Legend of the Year title.

Are you interested in performing? Individuals, and groups are encouraged to participate! You don’t have to be a professional superstar. All you need is a groovy song and some killer dance moves.  Contact Laura Pawlewicz to sign up to perform! Each Act/team/group/individual/organization has two ways to win!

  1. Ka’Ching Challenge Where the ACT that raises the most donations wins! 
  2. Lip Sync Legend of the Year Where the audience will decide which act will be crowned the winner during the show’s SURPRISE final performance!
