All of the proceeds are going towards the building fund for the SD67 Humanitarian trip to Tanzania. Over 30 students and chaperones are heading to Arusha, Tanzania for two weeks in the summer to continue to build additions to the existing orphanage. The talent show is produced by students at Summerland Secondary and the talented performers come from surrounding schools and members of the community.
In the show we will see many acts including “The Planks” who are a recently created cover band with three members from Summerland Secondary and Pen High. We will also see several skits from the show Almost Maine which is comprised of members of the Summerland Singers and Players who will be performing at a theatre festival later this year in Kelowna. There are many more acts that will blow you away including singers, dancers, gymnasts and poets. Summerland Secondary is very excited to continue the tradition of this amazing display of local talent and helping out a worthy cause.
The talent show was originally started by a Summerland resident Lindsey Richardson who was a grade 5 student at Trout Creek. The show was a fundraiser for Free The Children but has more recently supported the school district’s efforts in Tanzania. Richardson travelled to the LOHADA orphanage as a volunteer during her first year of university. Since then School District 67 has taken close 75 students there to volunteer and gain the experience of a lifetime. The students cover their own travel costs, but must fund raise extensively to fund the projects they complete while there. Since the start of the Talent Show 12 years ago, the program has raised approximately $50,000 in support of these two charities.
