City of Lakeland Employees Give Back Talent Showcase - November 4th

LAKELAND, FL – City of Lakeland employees have long been recognized for their service to the citizens “on the job” and now a group of performers will be known “off the job” for their talent with the first ever Lakeland Employees Give Back Talent Showcase being held at the Lake Mirror Amphitheater Friday, November 4th from 6pm – 9pm. In addition to the talented performing acts, a special city employees’ show choir, under the direction of Eric Holseth, will perform the finale. The showcase is free and open to the public.

The Lakeland Employees Give Back Talent Showcase was created to serve as a venue during which deserving City of Lakeland employees will be acknowledged for the numerous charitable activities in which they engage and also as an opportunity to provide a spirited night of performance as a gift to the community. Participating acts must contain at least one City of Lakeland employee, a family member of an employee or a city retiree. Acts will be judged and winners will be selected for both a Judge’s Choice Award and a People’s Choice Award. Attendees will have a chance to vote for their talent choice by donating $1 per ballot. All monies raised from the People’s Choice Award will be donated to the local United Way.

 “The employees have been working very hard to put together an awesome night of entertainment for their fans – you are really in for a treat. The highlight of the evening will be the finale performance with the employee choir. You won’t want to miss seeing some of Lakeland’s finest performers take the stage,” said event coordinator Billy Bures when asked about what to expect at this first ever talent showcase.
