Seminole County Family Connection Coordinator Billie McLendon stated, “Watching the youth of our community take the stage in front of strangers to share their talent for the first time with anyone but their families was emotional. This show is going to showcase students who have something to share with their community that even their peers might not know. I am just glad I don’t have to judge them. Everyone would win!”
Seminole’s Got Talent is a fundraising effort of Family Connection in collaboration with Donalsonville Downtown Development Authority.
The money raised will benefit renovations of the Olive Theatre and continue the efforts of Family Connection’s mission of bettering families and children through the power of literacy.
Family Connection and the Downtown Development Authority are very thankful for other sponsors involved, especially the Donalsonville News who will be providing the night’s programs, Bradley Grantham from PeoplesSouth who will be MCing the event, and First Port City Bank will be tallying scores.
