Fake It To Make It

Friday, January 28, 2022  •  7 PM - 9:30 PM
Columbia County Performing Arts Center

Fake It to Make It (FITMI) began in 2016 as a way to shine a light on domestic and intimate partner abuse, while raising money for Safe Homes Domestic Violence Center. While a sense of humor at this lip sync challenge is an absolute MUST, we always find ways to highlight the real reason we are there.
This event has sold out each year, and brought in more than $600,000 for Safe Homes’ mission of transforming victims of domestic violence into survivors. All proceeds remain local and support SafeHomes’ programs and services to include a 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter and outreach services, legal support, client financial assistance, counseling, support groups, programs for youth, and community prevention education.

The 2022 show will feature 5 ALLSTAR Teams who are competing to become the LIP SYNC CHAMPION.
