NORMAN — Tonight’s the night that some ordinary Norman residents will come out of their shells and show their entertaining sides at Celebrity Sing.

The annual United Way of Norman fundraising party at Riverwind Casino is a fan favorite. Some of the performers practice all year long just to be in the lineup. We could drop a few names, but it might be better to see for yourself.

The event includes dinner, a live auction with trips and tickets, and a Waikiki Raffle. We’ve even heard that the Blues Brothers might drop by.

This year’s United Way drive has a goal of $2.05 million to fund social and human service agencies and projects in Norman. It’s the money that keeps the doors open at nonprofits throughout the community.
