The doors will open at 5 p.m. with a silent auction with refreshments for sale. There will be 17 performers ranging from ages 6 through adult. They include a sketch comedian act, “Laugh Your Flesh Off,” a unicyclist and several singers, dancers and musicians.
“When we looked at different fundraisers, we really wanted to get the community involved,’ said Cassandra M. Bickel, a Realtor with ERA Sunrise Realty and the 2012 Cherokee’s Got Talent chairperson.
“The proceeds are going to good causes, and it is a fun event to come to,” Bickel said. “We try to make it an inexpensive, fun family event while still raising money for a good cause.”
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and military. Judges include Travice Obas, a professor of communications at Georgia Highlands College, and Realtor Maura Neill of Atlanta, who has a background in performance. The third judge was not yet announced.
The master of ceremonies is Joe Lemmo, a teacher at E. T. Booth Middle School and Elm St. Board Member. A grand prize of $500 will be awarded and there will also be an audience favorite.
