The music has been chosen. Each mascot has been primped. The vocal cords have been warmed up. And the battle date has been set. 

This new fundraiser is one we hope everyone will enjoy while helping those impacted by homelessness and hunger.

The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command – that serves the counties of Adams, Pike, and Brown in Illinois, and Marion, Ralls, Lewis, Shelby, and Monroe counties in Missouri – is hosting Unmasking the Singer. This new fundraising effort is a virtual fund raiser/competition that features six local celebrities who are in local mascot costumes, singing for your votes (aka donations)! 

On April 11 names will be drawn for what order each mascot will perform. 

April 12 the competition begins! 

Each night at 8pm, on our Quincy Salvation Army Facebook page, contestants will be performing their rendition of a current or past Christian songs. One contestant will be performing each night. 

Followers are encouraged to ‘vote’ (donate) either via VENMO or the contestant’s online Red Kettle. Each dollar raised the week of April 12-22 will be considered votes for ‘Fan Favorite’. On Thursday, April 22 at 8pm, each contestant will be unmasked. Then ‘round two’ and the race to biggest fundraiser/overall winner of the first ever Unmasking the Singer begins! Each local celebrity will be sharing their performance and asking you to help them raise the most money to help fight hunger and homelessness in our communities. Biggest Fund Raiser/Overall Winner will be announced on April 29. 

Every dollar raised makes an impact. 


A HUGE thank you goes out to our friends at John Wood Community College, Quincy Library, Quincy Fire Department, Rooney Elementary, Quincy Gems, and Quincy University for the use of their mascot costumes! Without their kindness and generosity, this fund raiser would not have happened. 

We also thank our generous EVENT SPONSORS who made this fundraiser possible.
