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.
