Lip Sync Battle 2022

On Saturday, July 30, AVMS held our first Lip Sync Battle. To say it was a success would be an under-statement! Twelve acts performed to a great crowd. Everyone did a fantastic job. Congrats to all of our performers.

In the end, the winners were: Robin C. as Marilyn with Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend in the Solo Category, and ABBA, aka Irene A, Chrissy H, Pauly Z and Chris S. with Dancing Queen in the Group Category.

We were thrilled to have representatives of our charity partners as judges:

  • Linda Craig – MOTS
  • Kelly Kowell – My Warriors Place
  • Victor McKenzie – JFCS Veterans Outreach
  • Sean Brown – Southeastern Guide Dogs

Thank you Del Webb for supporting these charities through your AVMS, and start working on your act for next year because we are definitely doing this one again.

Del Webb Lakewood Ranch Association of Veterans and Military Supporters welcomes you to our website.

As our Del Webb community started to develop in 2017, a small group of residents had the idea to start a group to support our military, their families and our community.

Although we're still growing and developing, we already have a couple of years of meaningful, successful events that have touched many lives. We will continue to grow with our community's support.

Our dedicated group of men and women finds ways to support our active soldiers, their families, and military retirees in need, while ensuring that our community never forgets what our troops do for us.

Please help us to make this resource a tool for all our active members, potential new members, and our Del Webb community by giving us feedback on what you like and what could be improved.

Rich Greenberg, President
