‘Raise Your Mic’ set to raise dollars and soothe the soul

LA CROSSE, WI – Two local nonprofit organizations are coming together to collaborate, raise dollars, and bring excitement to the Coulee Region.

The Salvation Army of La Crosse County and the La Crosse Community Theatre will hold ‘Raise Your Mic’ on Thursday, July 19th.  The event is an open-to-the-public singing competition where competitors will battle for the right to be crowned the ‘best vocalist in the 7 Rivers Region’.  All dollars raised from the event will benefit the day-to-day operations of The Salvation Army and the La Crosse Community Theatre. ‘Raise Your Mic’ is presented by Gundersen Health System and John and Linda Lyche.

“This is a great opportunity for our community to come together for a fun, community-wide competition while also raising dollars for two great organizations,” said Grant Golson of the La Crosse Community Theatre. “Both La Crosse Community Theatre and The Salvation Army are excited for this collaboration and are anticipating wonderful things from this partnership.” 

Online registration for finalist auditions opens on Thursday, May 10th.  Auditions will take place at the La Crosse Community Theatre from 6-10pm on Monday, June 25th and Tuesday, June 26th. People interested in auditioning will be asked to pay a $10 registration fee and can sign-up for a time slot by visiting www.SalvationArmyLaCrosse.org or www.LaCrosseCommunityTheatre.org.

More details on ‘Raise Your Mic’, including prizes, important dates and ticket information will be made available in the coming weeks. To stay up-to-date on all event announcements, follow The Salvation Army of La Crosse County and the La Crosse Community Theatre on Facebook.
