Stars on Stage
fundraiser on
March 4.

Last Saturday, the eighth annual "Stars on Stage" was the popular place to be. The fundraiser, hosted by the Colton Boosters Club, is a combination of talent show and food booth-raffle event. The multipurpose room of Colton High School was filled with pre-show diners before they filed into the gymnasium for the talent contest. The performances this year included vocalists, dancers, instrumentalist and a comedy routine.

Eleven acts performed for audience votes and the Judges Choice Award. Audience members were charged $2 admission and $1 per vote. Pre-determined (secret) judges voted for 'Best in Show.'

Winning the Judges Vote for best talent of the night, complete with $100 check, was 12-year-old Javin GoDair who sang, Bruno Mars' "Talking to the Moon," a song he dedicated to his late grandmother.

The $50 third place audience vote winner was the comedy team Ray and J's Jokes, comprised of Ray Baurer and Justin Kilman. The $75 check for HYPERLINK "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWCOYJg9ps4"second place audience vote went to Della Rae Rogers who sang Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years" and the $100 big-check for first place audience vote went to Anastaysja Pewitt for her rendition of Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again".

First-time emcee Greg Adams was fun and funny, and kept the audience entertained between acts. School district superintendent Koreen Barreras-Brown and her husband Rob Brown helped pull tickets for winners of the raffle baskets.

Money raised at the food booths and from the raffles went to the sponsoring classrooms, clubs and organizations; money raised from the talent show votes and admission will be used by the Colton Parent Club for needs identified in the schools.
