Groovy Nights: Battle of the Decades Lip Sinc Battle

LET THE BATTLE BEGIN!! Project Safe’s annual Groovy Nights fundraiser is back for its 17th year. This year’s event will be all about the biggest Lip Sync Battle in Athens, Georgia!

Join them at The Foundry on Saturday, Aug. 25th, 2018 at 8 pm. The Battle of the Decades 70s vs 80s Lip Sync Battle will be filled with competitive performances by local community favorites. Mark your calendars, grab your friends, put on your best tie-dye shirt and bell-bottoms or torn sweater and leg warmers and dance and sing the night away. Get ready for a night of dancing, lip sync contests, out-of-this-world hairdos, costume contests, henna tattoos, tarot readings, and snack and drink specials from the past! We'll have DJing by DJ Mahogany and delicious food from The Foundry downtown.

General admission tickets are $25, and student tickets are available for $18. This event is 18+. Tickets will be available at the door and online for pre-sale in July. All proceeds benefit survivors of domestic violence.

Although this event is the epitome of fun, the cause is why it is such a success. The event benefits Project Safe, a local nonprofit that works to end domestic violence in Athens and the surrounding areas. Project Safe offers prevention and educational programs, crisis intervention, systems change advocacy, and ongoing supportive services for survivors of domestic violence and their children.

Fundraisers like Groovy Nights allow them to do more for their clients and offer crucial resources to those fleeing or experiencing the devastation of intimate partner violence. In 2017, Project Safe answered 2,660 crisis hotline calls, offered outreach services to 1,067 survivors, and gave 257 educational presentations. With your support, they are able to continue serving those affected by the horrors of domestic abuse and help them move forward in their own, unique healing journeys.
