FARGO -- A local non-profit gave those with challenges a chance to show off their talents Tuesday night.

Creative Care for Reaching Independence (CCRI) hosted its 10th annual Talent and Variety Show at the Fargo-Moorhead Community Theater.

The organization aims to support those with disabilities through all stages of life.

Acts included singing, dancing, joke telling, and some crowd involvement.

Representatives from CCRI say the performers experience a priceless feeling onstage.


" People truly have the opportunity to be themselves on the stage. Whether it's singing the song or we have a gal who spins a basketball on her finger and the pure joy she has as she's doing that. As people see that and see people step into that spotlight, it's a super cool thing for them," said CCRI Executive Director Shannon Bock.

Bock also said there is a waitlist to perform in the event.

There were 20 different acts this year.
