2014 West Georgia Idol Has Been Cancelled
Looking for new volunteers and sponsors
The Hogansville Downtown Development Authority, producers of the annual West Georgia Idol singing competition and fundraiser, regrets having announce that there will not be a competition held in 2014. While the West Georgia Idol competition in past years has been very successful for both the organizers and participants, it has also been a 100% volunteer-driven event, with corporate and community sponsorship playing a huge role.
In 2014, the committee has struggled to pull together enough volunteers and sponsors to make this a successful fundraiser. More importantly, without enough volunteers and sponsors, we are not able to provide a professional, polished, and positive experience for the contestants.
Could this be the end of West Georgia Idol? We sure hope not. This event has not only been successful for four years running, but it has been important and enriching to the to the people who have competed. There is a small chance that this announcement about the cancellation of the 2014 competition will bring out volunteers and/or sponsors that we have not been able to find or attract. If there’s a way to keep this thing going, we want to do that. If you have ideas, or time to volunteer, please let us know.
If West Georgia Idol does not happen in 2014, we hope to bring it back in 2015 and beyond. For more information, please call 706-333-2520, find us on Facebook, or use our contact form.
In the meantime, keep practicing, keep performing, and please help us congratulate again the 2013 winners, Drew Cavender and Erin Lamb.
Congratulations 2013 Winners!
