A singing contest—much like “American Idol”—for entertainers 50 years old and over will be held on Friday, Oct. 1 at 12:30 p.m. The event returns this year to where it began, the Theodore D. Young Community Center in Greenburgh.
The contest includes 10 singers competing for the title of 2010 Golden Idol. In contrast to the popular TV show, program judges will remain silent during performances. The audience is encouraged to participate in group sing alongs.
Lunch will also be served prior to the contest at 11:30 a.m. The cost of lunch is $3 for 60 years old and over and $5 for those under 60. For lunch reservations and information, call Senior Citizen Services Coordinator George Coniglio at 914-989-3622 before Sept. 24.
Admission is free and all ages are invited to attend the contest.
