BLACKFOOT — The Relay for Life fundraiser "Bingham's Got Talent" raised approximately $3,200, according to early estimates from organizers.
The second annual event was organized by the Jason Lee Memorial United Methodist Church's "Angels Among Us" Relay for Life team. Thirty performers displayed their talents in front of a crowd estimated to be 450 people.
The winners of the talent show were Noelle Johansen in the under 14 age division and Tysen Hansen in the 14 and over age division.
Johansen played the violin while accompanied by her mother on the piano. The duo played the song "Millionaires Hoedown." Johansen donated her $100 prize back to Relay for Life and received a trophy.
Hansen played "Black Magic" on an electric guitar. He also received $100 and a trophy.
The People's Choice Award went to Haley Krehbiel for the second year in a row. Krehbiel collected $158 in votes, all of which will go to the American Cancer Society. She won $50.
Several local businesses and individuals donated items or money to support the event.
