The community’s help is requested in providing life’s necessities to individuals and families. The Kitchen, Inc.’s need for certain hygiene, household and food items has increased as more individuals and families are being benefited by the organization’s programs in 2016. Between January and March, 414 individuals were being housed in The Kitchen, Inc.’s seven housing programs compared to 385 during the same period in 2015.

WHY: The Kitchen, Inc. is excited to bring this event to Springfield. Lip sync battles have become increasingly popular and we decided celebrities shouldn’t be the only ones having fun. We have so many talented people living right here in the Ozarks and we wanted them to show off their rock moves!
The two hour program, hosted by Power 96.5’s Fotsch and Sarah, will consist of two rounds. All contestants will participate in the first round. Four contestants will then be selected for the second round. The contestants are vying for the $1,000 grand prize. Second place will receive $500 and third place gets $250. The contestants will be judged on creativity, song choice and performance. A panel of judges along with help from the audience will crown the three winners. The night will also include a media “battle” between Fotsch and Sarah and KRBK’s Stephen Morgan and Julie Wilson. Each duo will be competing for bragging rights!
The contestants include Officer Hamar Hann, a SPS school resource officer at Central High School. Officer Hann’s performance of Ice, Ice Baby at Central High School recently went viral. Officer Hann says if he should win, he will donate the money to CHS to help purchase a new water fountain. Another participant is Officer Josiah Thompson with the Springfield Police Department.
All media are invited to attend the event. The dress rehearsal for the event will also be open to the media. It begins at 3:30 P.M. at the Gillioz Theatre. Contestants will be available to talk with the media at that time. Media support is vital to the continued success of The Kitchen, Inc. and the services it provides to homeless and at-risk individuals, families, children, youth and veterans.
