Lip Sync

lipsyncOur biggest single fund raiser is our twice annual Lip Sync Shows (February and August). We’ve been having these for 5 years and they have turned out to be some of the most fun events on Cortes Island. Our Lip Sync attract an extremely wide cross-section of the Cortes Community, both on stage and in the audience. The acts have ranged in age from 2 years old to 75 plus. Our incomparable Master of Ceremonies, Rick Bockner, keeps the audience laughing while giving us his very unique perspective of island life. Anyone can participate in the show, so please join in on the fun and help make our shows better and better. See the photo gallery for pictures of past Lip Syncs.
