Horizon is Money in Bank for Hoosier Star

(La Porte, IN) - Horizon Bank is again a major sponsor of a singing competition that’s become a tradition in La Porte.


The bank provided a $10,000 sponsorship check to the host of the event, the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra.


It’s the 18th year in a row that Horizon Bank has been a Platinum Sponsor for the Hoosier Star competition.


Hoosier Star features five performers in the youth division and five performers in the adult division, who sing to the music played by the orchestra during the live event at the Civic Auditorium.


Over the years, most of the performers come from La Porte County and the entire region but there’s also been talent drawn from downstate and southwest Michigan. The performers are finalists chosen from a pool of contestants who auditioned for a chance at making it onto the stage.


The finalists compete for cash prizes.


The 18th annual Hoosier Star competition this year is scheduled September 9. LCSO Executive Director, Tim King, accepted the check from Horizon Bank NW Region President, Steve Kring.
