Over 20 contestants have signed up to compete in a karaoke contest to support the Wounded Warrior National Amputee Softball Team tonight at the Vista Lounge in Yorkville.
Each contestant has donated $50 dollars to participate and coordinators hope this event will spread more awareness.
"These folks are really human, and they've overcome a lot of tragedies in their lives and they are doing something to really further themselves. And also having fun. We really don't have 1st, 2nd, 3rd place things. We don't want anyone to feel like they didn't win. We have 22 trophies we're giving out. We're trying to spread the joy to everybody," says Alan Allen, event coordinator.
Coordinators say they are already prepping for a big event in May; a softball game at Murnane Field. They are still looking for sponsors for the event. Contact Jeffrey Kopec at (315) 542-4375 for more information or visit www.woundedwarrioramputeesoftballteam.org
