Memphis Grizzlies Guard Tony Allen is going to host a spectacular and fun fan-favorite event the “Tony Allen Karaoke Night” on March 24 at the Holiday Inn University of Memphis from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and the proceeds will be going to benefit the Juvenile Intervention and Faith-Based Follow Up. Tickets to get in will cost $20 for adults and $10 for children between the ages of 5-17, anyone younger than 5 will be free. Included in the ticket price are some snacks that will be onsite and Allen will be there as well to greet all of the fans.
There will be a singing contest that is going to be judged by the 92.9 FM ESPN Radio host Chris Vernon and Joe Birch from Action News 5, and the winner of the event will get to conclude the night by singing a karaoke song with Allen himself. This should be an exciting, silly, and good old fashioned light hearted function as many people will be calling into the Holiday Inn to reserve a spot to sing, or sign up at the door if slots are available.
The Memphis Grizzlies guard was the 2008 NBA champion as well as a two-time NBA All-Defensive First Team player for the years 2012 and 2013. Prior to playing professionally, he attended and played basketball for Oklahoma State University where he won the Big 12 Tournament MVP in 2004. That same year he was drafted to the NBA and played for the Boston Celtics for 6 years before going to the Grizzlies where he is today.
This karaoke event is a unique and intriguing way to get fans involved with helping towards a cause for the greater good. JIFF is a great program that helps wayward youngsters find their way to a good path again, and that is something Allen enjoys promoting.
