USciences’ Got Talent Returns Tonight

TALENTTonight, the 4th Annual USciences’ Got Talent will take place in the Athletic/Recreation Center’s (ARC) gym from 7-10 p.m. The event will give USciences students a chance to show their friends and classmates their talents for the chance to win one of three cash prizes, while also raising money for a worthy cause. 

“I love USciences' Got Talent because it allows students, faculty, and staff to show that there's more to our school than just science,” said Danielle Hoguet PT’16, chair of the event. “We have really creative and talented people, and it's refreshing to take a break for a night to showcase that.”

USciences’ Got Talent was first organized by Melissa Fontana PharmD’13, and Peter LaRocoo PharmD’13 in 2010. More than $700 was raised to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, 150 student attended the event, and iNERT!A took home the prize money.

Since then, the event has become more successful each year. More than $1,400 was raised to benefit SCINetUSA in 2011, and $1,000 was raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 2012. This year, the event is raising money for Go 4 the Goal, a nonprofit organization that helps kids with cancer live normal lives and reach their goals. The admission is $5 at the door and $10 for those who want to perform. Those proceeds will be donated to Go 4the Goal.
