Beta Theta Pi was pleased to host our fourth annual Carroll's Got Talent university-wide talent competition featuring students, faculty, and staff on Friday, January 27, 2012 in Kulas Auditorium. Any individual, duo, or group was invited to audition for a spot in the show, and we had nine remarkable acts from the JCU community. All proceeds, more than $1200, went to benefit Beta's local philanthropy, the Milestones Autism Organization.

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Miletones by attending the show, to our talented performers, our wonderful judges, our entertaining hosts, our hard-working volunteers (stage crew, ticket sales, concessions, etc.), and to the local restaurants that donated items and gift certificates for the show:
- Chick-fil-A Harvard Park
- Pizzazz on the Circle
- Dave's Cosmic Subs
Over the first three years of the event, we have been able to raise approximately $3,000. This fun-for-all-ages competition brings some of Carroll's best acts to the stage, and the event has served as a spring board for success for several performers, including iDance, a hip-hop dance troupe; and BEDROC, a rap duo that is now making a national name for itself. The defending champions as "Carroll's Best Act" are vocalist Jackie Orchard and keyboardist Patrick Levandowski.
