The New Horizons Behavioral Health Center will be hosting their annual Talent Show at the Bo Bartlett Center, College of the Arts, at the Columbus State University Corn Center on March 21 at 6:00 p.m.
New Horizons “is a sancutary for those individuals living with physical and mental disabilities, as well as a safe, lovign environment where caregivers can take their lvoed ones.”
A project that New Horizons staff use to “encourage growth and creativity” for the individuals in their care is the Talent Show that they hold every year.
This year, the Bo Bartlett Center “reached out to New Horizons and is supporting this activity as one of their ongoing partnerships within their Outreach Programs.”
“Creativity is fundamental for everyone. the BBC will off its State-of-The-Art facilities for this even with staging, lighting, music and a reception,” said Geri M. Davis, the Bo Bartlett Programs Chair.
New Horizons reportedly had a limited budget for the event this year, so “Upon hearing of their budget, the BBC staff, CSU and Aramark staff all donated financially to help make this a truly “red carpet” event. The community outreach and the philanthropic efforts of these individuals is something that is unique to our city,” said Davis.
Aramark’s Catering Director Sue Yost made “the first contribution towards an evening many people will long remember,” in honor and memory her granddaughter Jasmine. The gesture inspired her “colleagues, Columbus State University Staff, and hte Bo Bartlett Center family” to follow her lead and help make the event come together.
