(PRESS RELEASE)_DELRAY BEACH, FL (August 17, 2020) – In keeping with its mission to give back to local charities and the community, Artists & Charities Hand in Hand will host a virtual talent show this Fall featuring a variety of acts and performances by talented kids and grownups from across South Florida’s tri-county area. “VIRTUALOSO” is the brainchild of Ingrid Robinson, Founder and CEO of Artists & Charities, which has previously hosted professional art fairs in South Florida and is now embarking on an expansion into performing arts.
“VIRTUALOSO” will accept video submissions from individuals and groups based within Miami-Dade, Broward or Palm Beach counties who sing, dance, have a variety show act, or other unique, family-friendly talent. All ages are invited to apply. There is a non-refundable application fee of $10 for each submission.
From August 15 – September 30, 2020, applicants should provide a video (maximum length 2 minutes) performing their talent. If selected by the judges to compete, the applicants will receive an additional questionnaire for more detailed bio/background story information. Video submissions can be uploaded HERE.
“I am so excited about the opportunity to showcase the diverse talent we have here in South Florida,” said Robinson. “Who says you can’t have a little fun, even during these challenging times? Our goal is to raise funds for as many local charities as we can by featuring incredibly talented kids and grownups from our area – and, who knows, maybe we’ll discover a future star!”

Once contestants are finalized, the videos will be uploaded to a dedicated page at VirtualosoTalentShow.com and the public is invited to vote on their favorite. Each contestant will select his/her charity of choice, and all donations (which come in the form of votes at $1 each) will go directly to that charity. Contestants will be encouraged to promote their participation to maximize the charitable donation.
Corporate and individual Sponsorships for VIRTUALOSO are available, and more information is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 954-650-0324.
There will be three winners, based on the number of votes received, with cash prizes as follows:

2nd Place - $500
3rd Place - $250
Additional information, including celebrity judges, timeline and event details will be posted on VirtualosoTalentShow.com. Inquiries can be emailed to email@example.com.
