There is still a ways to go to raise the $1.5-million needed for a new CT scanner at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Elliot Lake

So far, about $900,000 has been raised, so another fundraising event is around the corner.

Renaissance Active Living Centre vice-president, Val Spencer, is hosting a variety talent show, but potential participants must audition and they must be from Elliot Lake.

Spencer says the audition is this Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the centre.

A panel of judges will decide who will be in the show, which will take place Saturday, March 30th.

Those interested in auditioning can contact Spencer on her Facebook page or by calling 705-848-7994 or her cell at 705-849-3465.
