BLACKFOOT- The 3rd annual talent show, Bingham's Got Talent, will be hosted at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center (BPAC) Saturday night, April 14th at 7 p.m. The talent show was organized by Angels Among Us, the Relay for Life team from the Jason Lee Memorial United Methodist Church.
Stacy Hastriter is the chairman for Bingham's Got Talent. Tom Drysdale is the chairman of the Angels Among Us relay team.
This year there are 22 entries. All spectacular in differing ways. Landon Delaney, 13-years-old, will be playing the cello and Alyssa Delaney, his sister, will be playing the fiddle.
Three bands will be performing. One group known as the Harmoners consists of harmonica players ranging in age from 65 to 91. Several contestants will be showcasing original pieces of work created at their own hand. The youngest performer has been a contestant for the last two years, Jean Marie Blackman Harlow, who is 9-years-old.
A panel of three judges will select a 1st place winner from the two age divisions. The winners will receive $100 and a trophy. The talent show also likes to give the audience a vote of their favorite pick known as the People's Choice Award. For $1 a vote audience members can fill their favorite contestants box with money. The box with the most money at the end of the night will be awarded $50. Door prizes from Starlite Bowling, the Downtown Bread Co, Tommy Vaughn's Grill, Rupes, Homestead Farms and Stockmans, will be drawn throughout the evening and the show hosts will be auctioning four tickets to a Utah Jazz game (donated by Nonpareil), a 3 day, 2 night casino resort vacation (donated by Blackfoot Appliance and Furniture), a gift certificate for the Black Swan Inn, and 2 gift certificates from On-the-Spot Cleaning and Restoration.
Admission is $3 at the door. All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life is June 15 and 16 at the Blackfoot High School track.
