Leechburg Elks Lodge 377 recently held a Karaoke Contest to raise money for the PA Elks Home Service Nurse Program, which is dedicated to helping persons with developmental disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, Down syndrome and hearing and visual impairments, to name just a few. This Pennsylvania Elks Program is a TOTALLY FREE service that is available in any of the 67 counties comprising the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. All administrative expenses are provided for by a grant from the Elks National Foundation, therefore every dollar earned by the Elks lodges goes directly to help the children and adults in our area. The audience watched as many talented local singers vied for the top prize of $100. The winners, by vote of the audience were; First Place, Marcie Covey, sponsored by Uncle Charlie’s Sausages; Second Place, Barb Shipman; and Third Place, Kim McHenry, sponsored by H & R Block. . The Lodge thanks our DJ, Stan Zydonik Jr., and Master of Ceremonies, Eric Swerczeski, who donated thier services, all of the singers who participated, the audience, and all of the generous businesses and individuals who contributed their time, talents, and donations to make this event possible
