Lip-Sync Battle Finally Goes Ahead

Woman in red heart sunglasses and red gloves with sparkles all around her like she's putting on a show.

And you can take part! Have you ever watched a lip-sync battle and wished you could give it a go yourself? Or is there a music video that you’ve always been obsessed with and wanted to emulate? Now you can! And it’s for a good cause; the event is a fundraiser for Aviva, who every year help thousands of people across Canterbury live free from violence. 



The event is planned for Saturday 25 September 2021, at Addington Raceway. It was originally scheduled for April 2020, but that year had other plans for us! So now we’re aiming for “second time lucky.” In the spirit of expecting the unexpected, we have even developed an alternative plan for running the fundraiser in a lockdown (which we sincerely hope will not be utilised!)

If you’re always singing in the shower or dancing around the kitchen (or office!), this is your chance to show off your skills, for good cause. It’s also an opportunity for businesses wanting to give back and raise the profile of their organisation (and a great staff social to boot). 

Money will be raised through ticket sales, sponsorship and voting – all money raised will go directly to Aviva.



Aviva’s vision is an Aotearoa free from family and sexual violence. Originally established in 1973 as New Zealand’s first Women’s Refuge, Aviva now provides a range of specialist services to support people to create a life free from family and sexual violence, and overcome its enduring harms. Aviva’s emergency support services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
