On August 24, as part of their annual fundraising dinner, Bridges to Hope (bridgestohopene.org) hosted an entertaining Lip Sync Battle at Screamers Family Restaurant. The night included a Myrtle Beach Condo raffle, “Second Chance Chairs” Silent Auction, a delicious buffet dinner and entertainment by eight Lip Sync acts!
