The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command unmasked Megan Peters 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 29. This year's in-person 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.

"It was such a special night to have fun and be entertained, all while unmasking a serious issue in Quincy and Hannibal, and that is the homeless problem," stated Donor Relations Coordinator Chad Douglas. "The Salvation Army is on the front lines of helping people get a hand up and back on their feet. Our community has always been so generous to The Salvation Army, and after hosting a virtual event last year, it felt so good to be live and in-person this year."

While the event may be over, the fundraising has just begun! The eight contestants (Katelyn Woodward, Alex & Julie Ginos, Mark Kempker, Anthony Oliver, Megan Peters, Patrick Hedges, and Allison Hutson) will continue to raise funds for The Salvation Army through May 8.
