Local students host talent show to help answer child’s dream


Students from Neshaminy High School Interact Club hosted their annual Neshaminy’s Got Talent on April 18 to raise funds to answer a child’s dream.

Money raised will help answer the dream of Aaidyn Butcher. Aaidyn, 5, diagnosed with level three severe autism and developmental delays, dreams of meeting Mickey Mouse and others at Walt Disney World with his family.

Neshaminy’s Got Talent is an evening with an impressive array of diverse talents, from captivating musical performances and awe-inspiring dance routines to humorous skits and unique artistic expressions.

“We are incredibly proud of all our entertainers and volunteers,” said Suzi Drake, NH-S Interact Club advisor. “Our club’s core members worked hard to plan, promote and run this event. Despite some last-minute changes, the students rose to the challenge by recruiting some additional acts featuring the judges and some members of the football team. The dedication and talent of all the participants not only entertained us but also helped bring us closer to making dreams come true for children in need. Audience members declared that it was “the best Neshaminy’s Got Talent ever.”

Other local businesses and groups that helped to make Aaidyn’s dream come true with NHS Interact Club include, Comcast, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Gannon Insurance Agency, Feasterville Business Association, Penn Community Bank, Ungarino Family, and Rotary Clubs of Feasterville and Langhorne.

Interact is an international service-learning organization affiliated with Rotary, with the goal to help make the world a better place. Interact has projects going on throughout the entire school year, including the annual Neshaminy’s Got Talent to help Sunshine Foundation answer a local child’s dream.

Sunshine Foundation answers dreams to children with lifelong severe illnesses and conditions from income-limited families such as: spina bifida, cerebral palsy, level 3 severe autism, Down syndrome, hydrocephalus, severe epilepsy, Sickle Cell Disease, blindness, deafness, and many others.
