New England's Got Taste! New England's Got Talent!
Friday evening May 17, 2013 will be a night to remember! As part of the program for the 2013 Parish Life Conference, Saint George of Lowell will be hosting the event “New England’s Got Taste – New England’s Got Talent”. The event will take place in the hall of our sister parish, St. John of Damascus Antiochian Orthodox Church in Dedham, starting at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12. Only advanced purchased tickets will be allowed to enter; we will not be selling any tickets at the door. All event proceeds will be used to help keep conference prices affordable for all.
On Saturday evening of the Conference (June 29th), we are planning a take-off on the popular TV show "America’s Got Talent" with a twist - it will be a showcase of the best talent in our Diocese! The May 17 event will serve as the elimination round for the June 29th Conference event. Each church in our diocese may submit up to three acts to participate in the elimination round, from which the final participants in the June 29 event will be selected. Acts can be anything from singing to dancing to comedy to magic…the only limit is your imagination! A panel of impartial judges and you, the audience, will decide who goes on to the finals at the Conference. Please see the attached rules for the event. There will be prizes for the TOP 5 winners at the Conference!
In addition to this elimination talent round, there will be a food challenge on May 17, called “New England’s Got Taste”. Before the show, everyone will be able to sample appetizers prepared by our parishes. Everyone who attends will be given five votes to use to vote for the appetizers that they enjoy the most.
