MTL VEG is throwing Montreal’s first “open mic” lip sync battle, featuring Brandon Calder, local sketch comedian as the event MC. All of the funds raised go towards supporting and promoting the well being of animals.
No talent? No Problem! Inspired by the Jimmy Fallow show, lip sync battles allow anyone to get on stage and perform songs by mouthing the words. Dance moves and costumes can be incorporated but are not mandatory. The goal is to get up, have fun and impress the audience. The best performers will win prizes including up to $400 in gift cards to some of the best veg and veg-friendly establishments in the city. If performing is not your thing, that is a-ok! Come as the audience, enjoy music, dancing and entertainment.
When: Friday May, 22 @ 8:00pm
Where: Le Petit Medley (6206 Saint-Hubert, Metro Rosemont)
Tickets: $10 in advance, $12 at the door
The money raised will go towards promoting and preserving the well being of animals (via funding MTLVEG & donations to Animal Rescue Network).

Where does the money go?
All funds raised from this event will be distributed as follows:
50% donated to the Animal Rescue Network (A no kill animal shelter focused on sheltering abused and abandoned cats and sometimes dogs).
50% towards supporting mtlveg.com
Currently MTLVEG.com receives no monetary support. All the time, effort and money put into MTLVEG.com is for pure passion and nothing more. The money raised for this event will be MTLVEG’s first attempt at acquiring funding. The funds acquired will be put to good use by promoting vegetarian and vegan lifestyle choices and highlighting cruelty-free restaurants, business owners and services in Montreal.
How much money will be raised?
It depends! Our goal is to raise $1000 from ticket sales. It’s a modest goal but we’ll need your support to make it happen!
50 people = $65 raised
100 people = $612 raised
150 people = $1162 raised
Help us reach our goal by spreading the word and promoting the event.
