Everybody's Got Talent!
Everybody's Got Talent @ Kellogg Auditorium - (Aug. 13th)
Just a few days before the event, I was contacted to see if I would be the special guest performer for this event. Not knowing what it was all about, I did some asking around and it turns out it was a VERY important event that I would not pass up in a lifetime. ALL of the procedes from the talent show would go to benefit the "Fun on the Run" - a community inclusive recreation program. This exciting program offers FREE, structured, neighborhood based activities at a variety of sites throughout Calhoun County. CIR staff will provide hours of FUN for youth of all ages and abilities --this mobile unit is fully equipped with hundreds of individual and team activities including art instruction, fitness training, team building and recreational options. Activities foster new friendships, explore many cultures, build leadership skills, promote sportsmanship and places emphasis on having FUN.
The event was entirely put on by kids and turned out to be a HUGE success! I had so much fun, not only performing, but meeting so many wonderful people from local kid performers to the Adults helping run the show, to the people being directly effected by this event. It was utterly moving to see how no matter how different everyone was, we all came together to help make a difference*
