Rocking Out for Enable Ireland

Enable Ireland is calling on all performers from across the capital to help raise €50,000 for the service with a very special charity Lip Sync battle.

The organisation, which provides services to over 5,500 children and adults with disabilities across Ireland, is holding the event on May 11th.

The Lip Sync Legends fundraiser will see 15 groups, acts and individuals take part in a huge stage production – putting on a spectacular show for the audience and lip syncing their favourite song; do you have what it takes?

Enable Ireland is now calling on people from South County Dublin with a passion for performing to get involved.

Performers do not have to be able to sing a single note – Lip Sync Legends is all about the showmanship, over-the-top dance moves and comedy.

Sophie Deegan, Community Fundraising Manager with Enable Ireland in Dublin said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone with a little inner showmanship to shine, and all for a very worthy cause.”

“We’re aiming to raise €50,000 from this event to support our services in the community for children and adults with disabilities and we know we’ll have a great time doing it. So, calling all extroverts – come on and join us for what’s going to be a great show!”

The successful 15 acts will be required to raise sponsorship for the event and each €1 in sponsorship is worth one vote with votes also for sale on the night for €1 each.

Tickets to the Lip Sync Legends event at The Ballsbridge Hotel cost €25 and include food on the evening.

All entrants taking part in the battles are expected to commit to launch night appearance and rehearsal time in an effort to create a great event for the audience and raise the €50,000 target.

Enable Ireland is part-funded by the HSE and other statutory agencies but requires over €2 million in additional funding each year to meet the costs of delivering services which include all aspects of a child’s physical, educational, and social development from early infancy through adolescence.

The organisation also offers a range of services to adults with disabilities which cover day care training, personal development, supported and independent living, and social and leisure activities.
