Deep Creek's Got Talent tomorrow at Honi Honi

The Honi-Honi Bar is proud to present our 7th Annual Deep Creek’s Got Talent! fundraiser event on Saturday, June 14th, 2014 at the Honi-Honi Bar.  Last year, through the generosity and support of contestants, sponsors, and local businesses, we were able to raise over $22,000, for HART for Animals.  Over the past six years, through the generosity and support of contestants, sponsors, businesses and the community, Deep Creek’s Got Talent! has raised more than $90,000 for local charities and organizations.

This year, we are very excited to announce our support to Cindy’s Fund.  Cindy’s Fund is a local charity, established in memory of Cindy Kutchman, that raises money for cancer education and screening programs.  Cancer will attack one in three women and one in two men in Garrett County.  Cindy’s Fund has already been successful in helping to save lives in our community through its support of cancer screening programs in Garrett County.  These programs have brought screening directly to more than 1000 uninsured persons and discovered more than 47 persons with cancer of the breast, cervix, colon, skin and ovary in the last 4 and a half years.  Screening leads to early detection of cancer and early detection is the key to survival.

Cindy’s Fund is dedicated to helping end and alleviate the pain and heartache of cancer and extending survivorship by pursuing early screening and evaluation for Garrett County cancer victims through the Garrett County Health Department.

Cindy’s Fund also covers miscellaneous expenses not covered by insurance for those in need, such as gas cards, food vouchers, hotel stays, and medical/nutritional supplies.

Deep Creek's Got Talent! Fundraiser Set For June 16

May. 31, 2012

The Honi Honi Bar will present the fifth annual Deep Creek’s Got Talent! fundraiser, which will be held on Saturday, June 16, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Over the last four years, according to a spokesperson, the event has raised more than $55,000 for local charities and organizations. The talent show organizers, who have described the show as “a cross between ‘American Idol’ and ‘America’s Got Talent,'” are looking for singers, musicians, dancers, jugglers, and actors to perform in the show.

Registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis. There are 15 available spots. To participate, performers must collect a minimum of $50 in donations to be turned in the night of the event.

“Because this event is a fundraiser,” said a spokesperson, “more judging points will be awarded to those who collect the most money before and during the competition.”

The event’s opening round, which is an elimination round, will begin at 6 p.m. Participants will then be judged on: donations collected prior to registration at the event, which will count for 50 percent of their score; the judges’ feedback and comments, which will be worth 30 percent of an overall score; and audience votes (as donations) collected at the event, which will make up the final 20 percent of a participant’s score.

The top five performers will then be asked to perform a second routine immediately after opening round judging is completed. Following those performances a winner will be crowned. Prizes will be awarded to the top three performers, the top fundraiser, and the “most talented” contestant.

The “most talented” contestant will receive the Judges’ Choice Award. This year’s judges will be Rob Michael, Pam Trickett, and Jana Brown.

“The event will be great fun for audience members as well,” stated a spokesperson.

“Besides showcasing outstanding area talent, the evening will feature great prizes and giveaways donated by area businesses, as well as a live auction for donated items. To help commemorate our fifth year in helping charities in Garrett County, special programming and entertainment, along with prizes, will be included in this year’s event.

“For an entertaining evening benefiting a great cause in the community, make sure you attend Deep Creek’s Got Talent! on Saturday, June 16, at the Honi Honi Bar.”

All contestants must pre-register to be eligible to compete. Registration forms and additional information are available online at http://www.deepcreektalent.com. Those interested in more information may contact Stacy Holler at 301-387-4020.
