The University of Central Arkansas Rotaract International Club will host its second annual UCA’s Got Talent Thursday, Nov. 9 at Ida Waldran Auditorium at 6:30 p.m.

Auditions for the show are Monday, Oct. 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Student Center 223.

The talent show serves as a venue to highlight local talent and support the community. This year’s event will benefit Operation Christmas Child and PolioPlus.

The club is currently looking for performers who are also interested in raising monetary and other donations to support the two organizations.

Last year UCA’s Got Talent supported the Department of Human Services Division of Children and Family Services, the UCA Bear Essentials Food Pantry and Operation Christmas Child. They raised 150 food items totaling 115 pounds, 67 clothing items, 52 additional items (school supplies, hygiene items, etc.) and $127.10 in cash. All donations were given to the three organizations.

Efforts in 2016 focused on helping the local Conway and Arkansas community. This year, their focus is helping the global community through Operation Christmas Child, which is organized by Samaritan’s Purse, and PolioPlus, which is involved in eradicating polio from the world.
