The time has come again to celebrate and encourage our own community talent. Our very own Gabriola’s Got Talent, for ages 5 to 13, is happening May 10, at 3:00 p.m. The HOPE Centre and the PHIT (Peer Helpers in Training) Team 2014, will be hosting this special talent show in the big multi-purpose room at the Hope Centre at 790 North Road. So if you know of a young person who is talented in the performing arts, let them know, “It’s time to SHINE!” with song and dance, tappin’ and a-struttin’, juggling and yodeling, magic and comedy, and more.  

Contestant entry forms can be picked up either at the HOPE Centre or Gabriola Elementary School. All entries must be submitted at the Gathering Place no later than May 5. There is an entry fee of $5 per contestant to be submitted with the completed contestant form. Amazing prizes donated by local businesses will be drawn randomly in the two categories: 5 to 8 years and 9 to13 years.

Of course the whole island is invited to come and see Gabriola’s junior talent. Parents, friends, grandparents, everyone “c’mon down.” Don’t miss it. 

If you want to make sure you’ve got seating at this spectacular event, tickets can be purchased at the door for $5 per person. Remember seating is limited, so come before the start at 3:00 p.m. This is a fundraiser in support of the Peer Helpers in Training (PHIT) program so that 14 youth can attend an amazing leadership camp on Thetis Island in June. 

There will be laughter, cuteness and too much fun, and one thing’s for certain...on this eventful afternoon, it will be for all to see that Gabriola’s Got Talent!
