Karaoke Contest Raises Funds For Babies with Skull Deformity

Karaoke Contest Raises Funds For Babies with Skull Deformity


For Immediate Release




Think You Can Sing? Karaoke Contest Reshapes the Lives and Heads of Babies Suffering from Plagiocephaly.  


Release date: June 5, 2009, Pickering-Ajax, ON


The Fairytale Palace has partnered with Launch NOW! to deliver a Karaoke Singing Competition for children in Durham this summer to benefit babies suffering from Plagiocephaly; a skull deformity.

The Competition will run from June 12th to July 17th using an elimination process, and is open to children 17 years and younger, who will perform one song on the Palace stage in front of a panel of judges.  Thanks to sponsors Soundhouse Studios and BGMP Music Studio, two Grand Prize Winners will each have the opportunity to sing in a professional sound studio with a live band, PLUS they’ll receive 10 copies of their song on CD, to share with family and friends.  Other sponsors have stepped forward to provide the printing, videoing, cd replication, judging, promoting, and photography for the event. The team is still in need of other prizes, door prizes, draws, and promotional *swag* for the 200 loot bags that will be handed out to each child who participates. Sponsors may also make cash contributions towards purchasing these items.

A minimum 20% of the proceeds raised will go towards helping families in need, whose children suffer from Plagiocephaly; a skull deformity requiring a custom-made corrective helmet at a cost of over $1500 which is not currently covered by the Ontario Health Plan.


“The number of positional Plagiocephaly cases increased sixfold from 1992 to 1994, occurring in approximately 33 out of every 10,000 births” (American Academy of Pediatrics). The National Center for Biotechnology Information also reported that the number of cases is increasing at an alarmingly expeditious rate, “In 1998, Plagiocephaly and Torticollis accounted for 11% of the total number of referrals to the CWHP physiotherapy service. In 2003, the number had escalated to approximately 25%” (www.nlhba.nl.ca).  If left untreated, the child may suffer other effects including weakening or loss of eye sight, jaw misalignment, hearing difficulties, and emotional trauma due to the physical deformity.


A website has been set up at:  http://www.ThinkYouCanSing.ca which contains detailed information on the event itself, sponsorship, and the cause it serves.  Anyone wanting to take advantage of this fantastic advertising opportunity aimed at reshaping the heads and lives of babies in our community, should contact the event organizers via the official website.
