Today, the American Lung Association in Florida announced that the 4th annual Lip Sync For Lungs presented by AdventHealth Orlando will take place at the Sak Comedy Lab on Wednesday, November 10. The event will return to an in-person event after being virtual last year, and this year, the organization will also offer a virtual option to people who can’t attend the in-person event.
For the event, local celebrities execute epic lip sync performances to songs of their choice, all to win the top spot of Lip Sync Battle Champion. Former Lip Sync Battle Champions include The Young Lawyers Division of the Orange County Bar Association, led by Brandon Sapp, Steve Gunter of The Taproom at Dubsdread, Tony Sos of Dellecker Wilson King McKenna Ruffier & Sos, and Nate Carn and Armando Castenada who represented various fire departments in Volusia County.
“We are so happy that we will be able to bring our community together safely for this fun and very unique fundraising event,” said Janelle Hom, executive director of the Lung Association. “During this challenging time, it is more important than ever to support lung health. We are proud that funds raised will help our ongoing efforts to end lung disease and lung cancer, as well as support our new COVID-19 action initiative.”
This year’s celebrity lineup will include:
Lacie Browning (Bruce), Walmart People Lead Manager and Known and Admired Drag Entertainer
Young Lawyers Division, Orange County Bar Association, led by Michael Barber
Rick Ramnath, Principal at Neuroskeletal Imaging
Heather Hurry, Pillar to Post and Barb Lynch, Rytech, both representing BNI Alliance Business Partners
Local celebrity judges will evaluate each of the performances. This year’s celebrity judges are Jordan Ostroff, President & Co-Founder of Legal Lease Marketing; Steve Gunter from Taproom at Dubsdread; and Chelsea Whalley from J Donavan Financial.
Money raised at the Lip Sync For Lungs will fund the Lung Association’s efforts to end lung cancer and lung disease, as well as support the Lung Association’s COVID-19 Action Initiative. The COVID-19 Action Initiative is a $25 million investment to address COVID-19 and protect against future respiratory virus pandemics.
