The East Coweta High School Soccer program will be holding its sixth annual talent show fundraiser later this month.

“Each year, we have as many as 37 kids show up to audition, and I’m blown away by the talent that our kids in Coweta show up with,” said director Wendy Danford.

The event will take place on Jan. 16, at 6 p.m. and the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts on Lower Fayetteville Road. Tickets are $5 at the door, and the doors open for seating at 5:45 p.m.
