2016 Jackson’s Got Talent will benefit Teton Literacy Center

(Jackson, Wyo.) - This November, Teton Literacy Center will be the beneficiary of the annual Jackson’s Got Talent event. Jackson’s Got Talent (JGT) is an annual social fundraising event/talent show to be held on November 12 at Pink Garter Theatre to support Teton Literacy Center. This event will be celebrating its third year. JGT Talent calls on all local talent, young and old, individual or groups, including musicians, singers, dancers and performers of any type to showcase their talents in a fun, lively social event! TLC will be kicking off the JGT Call for Talent and fundraising campaign on Wednesday, July 13 at the JH Live concert. This year, funds will support Teton Literacy Center in their mission to build a 100% literate community. Through this community collaboration, TLC will continue to provide free services to preschool through high school age students and their families. TLC is facing budget cuts from this state legislative session, losing $210,000 on an annual basis. All funds raised from Jackson’s Got Talent’s will be used to fund Teton Literacy Center’s programs. TLC is unique in providing the only free afterschool, summer, tutoring, and family resources in the county. The need for TLC services continues to grow in our community and the center is determined to continue providing high quality educational opportunities for children and their families. *Feature Photo: h/t Teton Literacy Center / Pitchengine Communities* #buckail #news #whatshappening
