Sponsored by Drs. Gosai and Gandhi, "Mon Valley's Got Talent" was created and coordinated by Lori Spina, CEO of Southwest Medical and Chamber Board Member, as a fund raiser for Chamber programs.

"The response by the community in the way of attendance and sponsorship was amazing," said Deb Keefer, Chamber Director. "A huge thank you goes out to Lori, and to all of those who sponsored us, donated to the Chinese auction, and especially to the many talented folks who made it a night to remember."
