POINT PLEASANT — An epic battle is about to begin.
This battle will feature elected officials, school administrators, as well as members of the faith and business communities who will duel on stage to a tune (or two) of their choosing.
On April 2, 16 well-known local figures will pick up the microphone for the inaugural Lip Sync Battle at The Meeting House, located in the former St. Paul UM Church at 2434 Jackson Ave.
Doors open at 5:15 p.m., event starts at 6 p.m. and tickets are $5. All proceeds benefit The Kitchen Table organization which offers free, community meals at The Meeting House.
The Lip Sync Battle is being organized by members of the The Kitchen Table as a fundraiser to not only provide free meals to the community, but to provide non-perishable food for individuals in emergency need. All money raised at the event will stay local.
The Lip Sync Battle will include two individuals facing off per round and the audience deciding who wins until there is a grand prize winner. Emceeing the event will be personalities from 93.1 The Wolf.
The order of the lineup, and just who will be facing off, will remain a secret until the event, but just who is participating is a “who’s who” of local figures.
Getting ready to throw down at the battle are: Mason County Commission President Tracy Doolittle; PPHS Principal William Cottrill; Point Pleasant Mayor Brian Billings; Jenny Shirley from Peoples Federal Credit Union; Assistant Prosecuting Attorney R.F. Stein Jr.; Scott Justus from Crow-Hussell Funeral Home and youth sports coach; Roosevelt Elementary Principal Tim Click; Mason County Schools Superintendent Jack Cullen; PPHS basketball coach Josh Williams; Pastor Matt Dotson from Good Shepherd UM Church; Pastor Rich Blain from Life Spring Community Church; Sharon Stapleton from Peoples Bank; Point Pleasant Councilman Keith Sargent; Kenny Grady, local stylist and community events organizer; Pastor Chip Bennett from Bellemead UM Church; and Chad Foreman from the health care community.
Also providing live musical entertainment is Sammy Doolittle. Concessions will be sold in the basement of The Meeting House.
