Karaoke contest benefits local blind baseball team WICHITA - Local singers have the opportunity to compete for a major cash prize and help a great cause in the process. The Third Annual Sonic Idol karaoke contest begins at 9 p.m. Saturday night Sept. 22. The event, which is a fundraiser for the Wichita Beep Baseball Association, is being held at Seneca Street Bar & Grill, 3837 S. Seneca Street in Wichita. The WBBA fields the Wichita Sonics beep baseball team in local and national tournaments. Beep baseball is a form of baseball with rules adapted for blind players. Money raised during the contest will go to fund the WBBA’s athletic events as well as its career development activities for the blind. “We’ve had a lot of fun and some talented singers,” said Kevin Burton WBBA president and coach of the Wichita Sonics beep baseball team. “The atmosphere is just great.” Not a singer? Not a problem. Sonic Idol will have raffles each week as well as a silent auction for prizes donated by local businesses. Singers will have a chance to qualify for the finals Sept. 22 and for the next four Saturdays. The finals will be held Saturday Nov. 3. The grand prize to be awarded at the finals is $500 cash, with $200 to be awarded for second place, $100 for third. The WBBA is a 501 ( c) 3 tax-exempt organization, meaning your donations are tax deductible. For more information on Sonic Idol or beep baseball, call Burton at 267-2324.
