With the return of last year’s celebrity judges comprising of local magistrates Charles Christner, Jesse Cramer, Joe Dalfonso, Larry Hopkins, Josh Kanalis, Curtis Thompson and Mark Wilson, the evening promises a full night of entertainment. This year’s talent is warming up their pipes, polishing their trumpets and shining their dancing shoes with hopes to outdo the likes of last year’s talent: Dr. Gosai’ s Indian dance performance and Bill Wiltz’s singing ‘Sweet Caroline’ with the entire audience.
Deb Keefer, Executive Director of the Mon Valley Regional Chamber, proudly boasts, “We are excited to be celebrating our 2nd annual Mon Valley’s Got Talent Show. This unique showcase of singing, dancing and instrumental talent of “amateur acts” is one you don’t want to miss.”

Jim Protin, Chester Engineers and Chamber Executive Board member, will serve as this year’s emcee, and DJ Jerry Jericho will provide music and sound for the talent. Catering is by Fourth Street Barbeque, Charleroi. Ticket price is $35 and includes dinner, two drink tickets, the show, music and dancing. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the talent showcase and dinner start at 6 p.m. A Chinese auction with gifts valued at $50 or more will be conducted throughout the evening.
Last year’s show was a sellout and that prompted Lori Spina, MVGT Chairperson, to secure a larger venue for this year's event. Tickets will not be sold at the door, so she encourages anyone interested in attending to purchase theirs early from Chamber of Commerce Board members or at the Chamber office. They are also available at the practice of Gosai and Gandhi, 1200 McKean Avenue in Charleroi.
Sponsorship opportunities are available at several levels. The main event sponsor is the Practice of: Kamlesh Gosai, MD & A.J. Gandhi, MD.
