Singers and Volunteer of the Year Unmasked at Salvation Army Fundraiser

May 1, 2023

The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command unmasked Drew Quintero as the Fan Favorite at the organization's fundraiser, Unmasking the Singer. This unique head-to-head singing competition, where Quincy and Hannibal area celebrities/community members donned mascot costumes - and sang for votes, was held Friday, April 28. This year's event was a fun-filled night of raising money for The Salvation Army to continue to provide shelter to the homeless in Quincy and Hannibal. The organization also recognized Grace and June Hendrian of Grace and June’s Lemon-Aid Stand as the 2022 Volunteers of the Year in addition to Kohl Wholesale being recognized as the 2022 Business Partner of the Year.

“The amount of talent and compassion we have in this community is second to none,” stated Donor Relations Coordinator Chad Douglas. “Every year, we have great contestants who put on a very entertaining show, and every year, supporters of The Salvation Army show up to support our Emergency Shelter. When you support our shelter, it's more than giving someone a warm place to sleep. It’s food in their belly, it may be clothes on their back, and it’s a help up to get them back on their feet.”
