Youth Got Talent Show: Stirring up the Gifts. 

    This letter is written on behalf of the youth of Gethsemane Baptist Church, as a request for your support in an upcoming fundraiser event entitled Youth Got Talent Show: Stirring up the Gifts.  Proceeds will go towards the church’s youth services. We need your support to spread the word about the event, and hopefully to attend (and participate – if eligible). Participants will be selected from auditions.
The event is scheduled to take place Saturday, May 21, 2011: Show time 1:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M.  and Gallery 12:00 Noon1:00 P.M. (display of art work in lobby). Location is CS 211 at 1919 Prospect Ave Bx, NY 10460 (b/w Tremont Ave & Elsmere Ave).  Admission is $5.00 for persons not participating in stage performance: tickets sold in advance and at door. Prizes of 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place will be awarded for performances selected by the judges.
The Talent Show activity is a follow-up to the Risk Reduction/Prevention Strategies identified during Gethsemane Baptist Church’s Social Action Ministry meetings and workshops presented year 2010.   It is to be an opportunity for all youth (ages 5 – 25 y/o) in the community to use their imagination, competitive edge, energy, talent, and time for a structured public presentation of their gifts, talents and abilities- in a safe, entertaining and professional manner.  
The desired outcome of the event is the morale and self esteem of participants/attendees will be elevated to encourage them to make healthier choices for a positive lifestyle: to minimize and/or eliminate risks that can lead them to truancy, hospitalizations, institutionalizations, and the likes.
The Youth Got Talent Show: Stirring up the Gifts is also purposed to challenge Gethsemane’s youth and young adults to collaborate with their peers and older members, to cultivate their spiritual gifts; and to embrace leadership roles to organize and bring special events to pass.
