Special Performance 

Amanda Gatewood

Bloomberg School of Public Health's Amanda Gatewood won first place in Hopkins' Got Talent 2017 and will give a special performance this year. Amanda began studying wheel gymnastics to diversify her fitness and completely fell in love with the sport. 


What are the prizes?

Through live “text-to-vote” technology and a panel of guest judges, the top faculty and staff talent will compete to win a $500 prize. A second $500 prize will go to the act that raises the most money. Each act has a personalized donation page to encourage their networks to support them in the competition, attend the talent show, and bring awareness and financial support to a charity of their choice.

 

Who benefits?

This talent show event puts the "fun" into fundraising as all proceeds go towards the university's 2018 United Way campaign goal.

Acts accepted into the competition are challenged (but not required) to raise $500 with the help of their personalized online donation pages that they can share with friends, family, and coworkers.
