The Annual Community Events Staff (A.C.E.S.) and the Trinity College chapter of Relay for Life have partnered for a lip sync battle to raise money for the American Cancer Society. A.C.E.S., an on-campus club dedicated to organizing events for charity throughout the school year, has organized the event to be both dedicated to an important cause and entertaining for the community.

“This event is important because it is a chance for students to get together and have a fun time for a great cause! We hope to raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society” commented A.C.E.S. president Lexie Axon ’19. The organization will award prizes to the best student performers. First place will be awarded $500, second place will be awarded $250, and third place is a collection of gift cards to local restaurants. A.C.E.S. will also hold a raffle for audience members to participate in that will include gift cards, and items from the Trinity College Bookstore.

“Normally, Relay for Life holds a mini lip sync battle in April. Students love to participate, so I wanted to make the battle its own event. We partnered with Relay for Life to hold a larger version of what they normally do,” explained Axon.

The lip sync battle is the first event organized through the two organizations and will be held in Vernon Social on April 6 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. Admissions cost will be $5, and tickets will be available to purchase outside of Mather throughout the week. Students are encouraged to sign up for a lip sync performance at alexandra.axon@trincoll.edu.

The Lip Sync Battle will be in Vernon Social on April 6th from 730-930pm. Students are encouraged to sign up by emailing me at alexandra.axon@trincoll.edu. We will also be charging for attendance, and will be tabling outside of Mather from April 2nd to April 6th. The admissions cost will be $5 if you buy your ticket before, and $7 at the door. All the admissions costs will go towards the American Cancer Society. All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society.
