Seniors Got Talent

Morning Pointe Foundation’s Chattanooga Seniors Got Talent show set for Aug. 8 in new venue

On Aug. 8, ten local senior adults will compete in the 4th Annual Chattanooga Seniors Got Talent variety show produced by the Morning Pointe Foundation.

The show, which the Foundation puts on in conjunction with Morning Pointe Senior Living, will be held at a new venue this year: the 650-seat Silverdale Center Creekside Theatre. The theater is a recent addition to the Silverdale Baptist Academy campus on Bonny Oaks Drive in Chattanooga.

Seniors Got Talent is open to any talented seniors (not just Morning Pointe campus residents) age 62 and older. Acts have included singers, musicians, dancers, poets, comedians and more. The grand prize winner will receive $500. Auditions will take place June 8-15 at local Morning Pointe Senior Living campuses, as well as online.

The shows’ purpose is twofold: to give local seniors a place to shine, and to raise funds for the Morning Pointe Foundation through sponsorships and ticket sales.

The Chattanooga show will take place at 7 p.m. Tickets will be $10 and will go on sale in July.

“We can’t wait to see the amazing talent from our Chattanooga-area seniors this year,” said Miranda Perez, Morning Pointe Foundation executive director. “We love that these shows not only provide fabulous entertainment and make seniors’ dreams come true, but they support scholarships for worthy students at our partner colleges who are pursuing careers in senior care.”

The Morning Pointe Foundation hosts four Seniors Got Talent shows each year. Besides Chattanooga, shows are held in Franklin and Knoxville, Tennessee, as well as Lexington, Kentucky.

The Morning Pointe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living founded by Tennessee-based senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow. The 501(c)3 nonprofit public service organization was created in 2014 to provide caregiver support programs, sponsor educational awareness events, and fund clinical scholarships to advance the care of seniors throughout the Southeast.

“Seniors Got Talent is both a fun event for the family and supports a great cause,” said Vital. “We look forward to these shows each year and the opportunities they provide for local talented seniors and aspiring caregivers.”

Founded in 1997 by Tennessee healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and Franklin Farrow, Morning Pointe Senior Living owns and operates 37 assisted living, personal care, and Alzheimer’s memory care communities in five southeastern states.
