High Country’s Got Talent
The inaugural “High Country’s Got Talent” is being held as part
of an effort to fight the world’s water and sanitation epidemic.
The show will include acts from Ashe, Avery and Watauga counties, as well as surrounding areas. All ages and acts are invited to join in the competition, while helping Wine to Water.
HCGT is being presented by the Maji Club, the Wine to Water chapter at Watauga High School.
All participants will be given a commemorative “HCGT” T-shirt, and spectators are welcome to buy a shirt. Everyone is encouraged to have fun in the photo booth by creating memories.
According to its organizers, the biggest reason for the fundraiser is the lack of availability of clean water. Nearly 800 million people worldwide lack access to clean water, according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
Primary auditions will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 23. Auditions will be $10 per act, which will be collected at on site.
Tickets to the final show are $15. The final show will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15.
Show tickets may be reserved, but money will be collected at the door.
