Robert: Man fundraises by singing Garth Brooks for 36 hours
There are many ways to raise money for charity. A Washington state karaoke enthusiast is raising money by singing the same Garth Brooks song for 36 hours straight.
Cliff Satterwhite is raising money for the Real Men Wear Pink breast cancer awareness campaign and marking October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month by belting out Brooks’ hit song “Friends in Low Places” on repeat. This is Satterwhite’s fourth one-man karaoke marathon fundraiser.
“My attempt will feature one singer, one song, no sleep breaks and only a 2-5 minute break between songs for water, food and bathroom, that’s really what sets it apart,” he says. “The last three years have taught me so much in terms of preparation, pace and when and what to eat. I’ve learned those are all key factors in the success of this event.”
Satterwhite says he is hoping to raise at least $10 000 for the charity.
