Orland Township’s Senior American Idol Returning This Fall
Ticket sales begin August 30th.
Thirteen talented seniors have been chosen to compete for the title of 2021 Orland Township Senior American Idol! Join Supervisor Paul O’Grady and the Board of Trustees for an evening of dinner, dancing, and jaw-dropping performances this October.
Designed to replicate the well-known television show “American Idol”, the thirteen contestants will perform a song of their choosing in hopes to move on to the next round. Scores are determined by a panel of celebrity judges, along with votes from the audience and ballot box totals.
Each contestant will have their own ballot box, where audience members are encouraged to fill their favorite singer’s box with money. Contestants that receive the highest overall total will advance onto the next round.
One-hundred percent of the funds collected from the ballot box are donated to the Orland Township Scholarship Foundation in order to reward local high school seniors financial scholarships as they move forward towards their college careers.
“We’re excited to see the event return this year,” said Supervisor O’Grady.
“I invite everybody to come out and see our talented seniors perform as they compete for the name of Orland Township’s 2021 Senior American Idol. Not only is it going to be a very entertaining evening, but it’s a great way to give back to the community as the occasion directly benefits Orland Township’s Scholarship Foundation.”
Orland Township’s 2021 Senior American Idol competition will take place on Thursday, Oct. 21 at Georgios Banquets, 8800 W. 159th St., Orland Park. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. with the singing competition following dinner. Tickets are $30 and include a plated dinner and cash bar.
