-$20 of votes (if you want to purchase more–you are welcome and encouraged to!)
-The opportunity to socialize and make friends with some of the most fabulous people in NWA!
All acts will be auditioned prior to the show (so we get really good stuff).
There are three awards:
Grand Prize—how much is raised per head in the act.
Remember –this is a fundraiser! It’s one of the few times it’s legit (and encouraged) for YOU (the audience) to “buy votes”. The acts are allowed to pre-event fundraise as well as try to get the audience to vote for them with their money that night.
Judges awards of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place with additional space for a few honorable mentions.
Audience Choice (best costume, favorite hair, favorite music, etc)
Trust us–this is definitely an event you don’t want to miss!
