Fundraiser Events

Karaoke Contest


 April 1 | 8-10PM

🎵Just a small town girl, livin’ in a Karaoke world! 🎵

Grab your friends, grab some cash, and vote for your favorite musical talent at our additional Karaoke Contest. See you at Florence's Oak Creek Tavern for this 4th of July Fundraiser! Winners will walk away with NEW prizes and bragging rights (of course). All proceeds go to our July 4th Event; but no, that doesn’t mean you need to sing the National Anthem.

Bring cash for voting! The more money you earn, the more votes you get!
