An evening of electrifying dance moves, flashy costumes and knock-out musical performances … No, it wasn’t the Grammy Awards. It was the Kane Center’s inaugural Lip Sync Battle.

The Battle raised over $5,500 for scholarships for seniors with physical or cognitive impairments to attend the Council on Aging at the Kane Center’s Adult Day Club.

Emcee Jason Salerno from South Beach Orthotics and Prosthetics, along with event judges Vontrell Lee-Kin from WFLM The Flame, James Butler from Allegro Senior Living, and Dr. Roshni Patel, DMD, led the audience through the line-up of six fantastic lip sync performances by “stars” of the Treasure Coast.

Tami Speed and Nancy Hilton from St. Lucie Medical Center opened with Abba’s “Mamma Mia.” Diann McDonough and her team of nurses from Watercrest Senior Living performed as Diana Ross and the Supremes. Jillian Von Ohlen, realtor with the Von Ohlen Team of Keller Williams, and Chad Miller, of Dad the Mom, “party rocked” as LMFAO. Troy McDonald, City of Stuart Commissioner, with accompaniment from Cheree Ramirez of Premier Jet Training, added a tropical flare with their rendition of Jimmy Buffett’s “Margaritaville.” And the event’s planning committee, Christine Rigg, owner of Elder Home Care Services; Dorothy Duve, Director of Admission for The Gardens of Port St. Lucie; Melissa Giarratano from Merdi Home Care; and Andele Ansola from Treasure Health, with special guest Brook Belding showed off their girl power with performances of “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys and “Run the World (Girls)” by Beyonce.

The Kane Center’s own Soraya Henry and Alice Delevante, with back up from Adult Day Club clients Kathleen Sparks, Tim Hoffman and Roy Vanderckhove, brought down the house in their performance of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.” With perfect 10 scores from all three judges and an overwhelming applause vote from the audience, they took home the first-prize belt and the bragging rights.

“We’re proud to win, of course,” said Henry, “but more than anything, we’re excited to bring the community together to support much-needed therapeutic programming for our seniors.”

The battle was sponsored by Elder Home Care Services, Merdi Home Care, LifeCare Therapy Services, VNA, Tender Touch Caregivers LLC, Complete Retirement Group, The Pointe, Aycock Funeral Home, Oasis Senior Advisors and Plumbing by Bishop.
