The 5th annual Red Carpet Karaoke Contest is set for Saturday June 11th @ 5pm. Signing starts at 6pm, but if you want a good seat, don't get there late. Centennial Park is always standing room only for this event. Snacks and drinks will be available at the park concession. Funds for this event support the DCRA, and go to help downtown stay viable to our economic engine in Cushing.
Deeprock, located in Cushing's downtown, is and has been a major sponsor of this event. Deeprock believes in what Cushing has to offer, and knows that the downtown community is vital to Cushing's historic value.
Tiger Mart located on main street, has also become involved in downtown, even though they are not located in the downtown district. This says even more about how vital our downtown area is, to the whole of Cushing. These sponsor help supply Red Carpet Karaoke with the prize money to attract contestants, which also helps raise funds, by bringing out fans and family to support those who entered the contest. First place receives $300, plus the added bonus of performing at Cushing's 4th of July BLOWOUT in Memorial Park. The first place performer earns an additional $100 for a $400 total purse. Second place also performs, in the park, and earns an additional $50. Third place also receives $25 for their performance in the park as well. This ads local flavor to the BLOWOUT in Memorial Park, and ties the two events together, benefiting each event.
RDMGtv will be LIVE Streaming the Red Carpet Karaoke event on June 11th, on CushingHub.net. Feel free to tell your distant relatives and fans to log on and watch the show. We will eventually archive the show in its entirety, and provide recordings of individual participants, and help the DCRA raise additional funds for downtown. RDMGtv is proud to be located in the heart of Cushing, and supports the DCRA wholeheartedly.
