Last Wednesday May 6th was the first night of Relay Idol Auditions. 30
songs and a total of $152 raised for the American Cancer Society later,
the Judges have finally narrowed it down to three contestants:
Jake Beliveau sang “Freedom 90” by George Michael
Kira Sable sang “When Will I Be Loved” by Linda Ronstadt
Todd Cochran sang “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zepplin
Who will join our three contestants May 30th 2009 for Relay Idol Finals?
Tune in next Wednesday May 13 @ Herbs to view the next set of contestants.
Here’s how it works:
Islanders Bank is looking for the next Relay Idol 2009!
“Relay Idol” is a fundraiser put on by Islanders Bank. Proceeds go to
the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Friday Harbor. American
Cancer Society raises money to improve education, early detection and
The idea of “Relay Idol” is patterned after “American Idol.” There are
three evenings for auditions. Auditions start at 9:30pm on Wednesday May
6th, 13th, and 20th at Herb’s. There is a $5 registration fee per
audition. Each performance will be judged by 4 judges from the
Islanders Bank Relay For Life Team. The top three performances from
each evening will come back for “Relay Idol” finals. Finals are
Saturday May 30th at 6pm. Contestants are allowed to audition more than
once in an evening for an additional $5 registration fee. Also if a
contestant does not make it into the top three one week then they are
welcome to come back the next week to audition.
Like “American Idol”, our “Relay Idol” is determined by the audience
participation. On the Finals night contestants will perform two songs.
During the second performance is the time for the audience to cast their
votes. Votes are cast by placing cash donations into the performer’s
donation bucket. The contestant that collects the most cash during
their performance will be crowned “RELAY IDOL 2009”. Islanders Bank is
making the prizes this year even bigger and better than last year. The
1st place winner will sing the National Anthem at the Relay for Life
Event on Saturday July 25th and receive $200 cash! Second place will
receive $150 cash and third place will receive $100 cash. So don’t miss
out. Come back to Herb’s on May 30th and vote for our next “Relay Idol
