Project Sunshine to Host Annual Talent Show Fundraiser

Project Sunshine is hosting its annual talent show called Buddy Idol Saturday at Huntsville Intermediate School on March 30.

This event will showcase some of the many talents of Project Sunshine’s “buddies,” or community members with different backgrounds, needs, and disabilities. The event helps raise money so that Project Sunshine can continue to provide free programming to families in the Walker County area.

“The Buddy Idol is our big spring semester fundraiser that we put on every year to help raise money for our many activities,” Project Sunshine President Sophia Spilotro said. “It also demonstrates the students skills and what they have learned at the campus.”

Project Sunshine is a non-profit organization that provides services to people with special needs and their families. Since many of them spend hours in either therapy or hospital settings, Project Sunshine is there to help relieve stress for them with fun and exciting activities.

These activities consist of trips to the movies, fall festivals, bowling and many others.

The show will be held from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m., and all Huntsville community members as well as SHSU students are invited to attend. Along with the talent show, they will be holding a silent auction and a bake sale.

“We like to invite college students to these events to get them more aware of what we do within this organization,” Spilotro said.

There will be several acts ranging from singing, to dancing and much more.

Tickets to the show will be on sale from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Lowman Student Center mall area on Tuesday and Wednesday for $10, and $12 at the door the night of the event.
