Judges and facilitators have convened to Syracuse, N.Y., to enjoy thousands of pages of excellent design and unspeakably awesome weather. Few people know the real reason they’re here: the annual tradition of SND Foundation Karaoke Night.

Every year we raise an impressive amount of money from the people who come to Syracuse, but we also need you to play along from home and help the cause. Here’s how it works: 1. Make a donation through PayPal; 2. Send a tweet with your singer and song request to @sndkaraoke. It’s that simple. We’ll be sharing the performances and photos through Twitter and here on snd.org.

Donate via PayPal:

Our goal is to raise at least $3,000 to fund the SNDF’s travel grants for students to the Annual Workshop & Exhibition, grants to the student designers of the year, and training such as the Syracuse Student Symposium and other Quick Courses.

So, think about the most excruciating songs you could hope to unleash on your unsuspecting friends and colleagues. Make your donation and send your song request to @sndkaraoke. We promise to gently coax/force them to comply for the sake of both a good cause and our gleeful enjoyment at their expense.
