This year, more than 20 brave souls will grace the stage Sun., Aug. 11 at The Canyon in Agoura Hills for the second annual Charity Karaoke: Sing for a Cause fundraiser hosted by the Conejo Senior Volunteer Program.
Ryan O'Quinn will emcee the event. The actor/producer/comedian is a Calabasas resident and is also president of Damascus Road Productions in Westlake Village.
The brainchild of CSVP volunteer Laura Conway, the event pairs nonprofits with singers who compete to see who can raise the most money and who can win the most votes for best performance.
In Charity Karaoke, participating organizations choose singers as well as collect donations. Their organization keeps 80% of what they bring in and the remainder goes to CSVP. The organization collecting the most money receives a cash prize, awarded the night of the event.
Singers also compete for best performance based on audience voting. Both in-person audience members and those watching via online streaming will be able to vote via text.
Thousand Oaks native Carly Bracco, who played the role of Elsa for “Frozen Live” at Disney, will perform in Charity Karaoke for Conejo Community Outreach. Bracco also performed in 5-Star Theatrical’s “Peter Pan” in 2017
“American Idol” finalist David Hernandez, will also sing on behalf of Paw Works. In all, at least twenty local singers will represent the 20 charities.
Doors open at 5 p.m. at The Canyon.
Tickets run from $20 to $40 each and residents are encouraged to visit The Canyon box office, 28912 Roadside Drive, Agoura Hills or purchased online through ticketmaster.com
