We can't tell you how great of a night we had at Got Talent last Friday evening. After months and months of preparation it great to see all the acts and the people who came out to support them.

We raised a total of $23,000 for Marshalltown Area United Way!

Thank you all for coming out to support us and the talents! Thank you to our sponsors - we could not have done this without you. Thank you to Smokin' G's for catering the event. Thank you for watching these great acts and wanting to spend your evening donating to United Way. Visit Marshalltown Area United Way's Facebook page for pictures of the performances.

First place winner of the talent show was Sommer Braye whose heartfelt performance of Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri wooed the audience.
