Got talent? Then the YMCA of East Tennessee and Knoxville’s Got Talent want to hear from you. They’re teaming for a community-wide talent search that will highlight the gifts of local artists and performers starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, at the Knoxville Marriott, 501 East Hill Ave.
Auditions are open to groups and individuals of all ages and talents. Selected performers from the audition round will compete for a Knoxville’s Got Talent grand prize of $1,000 at a 2018 event at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum. Proceeds will beneﬁt the Y’s youth programs.
“The Y’s cause is to strengthen the community,” said Rebekah Grace, senior program director at the West Side Family Y. “That’s what we do and why we’re here. This is a real chance for us to give youth more opportunity and to help them explore what they’re passionate about.”
The YMCA of East Tennessee’s many programs for youth include swimming and other sports, child care, after-school care, summer day camps, mentoring, gardening and many additional activities. Pre-register for Knoxville’s Got Talent by Nov. 15. Secure your audition spot by calling 865-237-6968.
