The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command is thrilled to announce that tickets for its highly anticipated fundraiser, Unmasking the Singer, are officially on sale. This unique event promises an evening of entertainment, philanthropy, and community spirit, all in support of The Salvation Army's mission to provide vital shelter services for the homeless in Quincy and Hannibal.


Unmasking the Singer (UMTS) brings together local celebrities and community members from Quincy and Hannibal for an unforgettable singing competition. Donning iconic mascot costumes, participants will take the stage to vie for votes and the coveted title of Unmasking the Singer Champion. The event will take place on Friday, April 26, at the Town and Country Inn and Suites.


Attendees can secure their seats for this exciting event by purchasing tickets at or by calling The Salvation Army at 217-231-5626. Tickets are priced at $70 per person or $525 for a table of eight. Doors will open at 5:30 pm, with dinner being served at 6:00 pm, accompanied by a cash bar for refreshments.

The evening's emcees, Director of Development Matt Schmidt and Donor Relations Coordinator Chad Douglas, will guide guests through an electrifying lineup of performances. Before each act, tantalizing clues about the masked singers' identities will be revealed, adding to the suspense and excitement. Audience members will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite acts by making donations, with each dollar equating to one vote.


Following the initial performances, the top three acts with the highest votes will advance to Round 2, where the competition intensifies. As the audience casts their votes once more, the act with the most support will be crowned the People's Choice Unmasking the Singer 2024 winner.


In addition to the thrilling competition, the evening will feature an informative presentation about The Salvation Army's impactful work, and a dinner for all attendees to enjoy.


But the excitement doesn't end there! Following the event, participants will embark on a fundraising challenge, with each contestant given the opportunity to raise additional funds for The Salvation Army. With online Red Kettles and various fundraising methods at their disposal, participants will have until May 5 to demonstrate their dedication to the cause. Join us for an evening of music, mystery, and meaningful impact as we come together to support those in need in our community.
