Lip sync battles for a cause.
On May 22nd 2015, I ran my very first charity fundraiser which was very fun and a great success. With just about two months to promote, the event had over 120 attendees, 15 participants and raised over $1200.
I planned the first event from A to Z:
- Booking the venue, talent, MC, DJ
- Finding sponsors
- Creating the posters, flyers, promo video
- Marketing the event on line and via Social Media
- Creating the order of proceedings and facilitating the show
- Coordinating food sales
Due to the success of the event, we launched LIP SYNC MTL. LIP SYNC MTL aims host Lip Sync Battle fundraisers a few times per year to help local charities in Montreal. The planning is more collaborative with the charities involvement. The second instalment took place on January 16th 2016 to support a Montreal based NGO called The Mercy Project.
