Peter Jose Smith, who has recently announced his bid for Utah’s 3rd district in Congress, organized a musical talent contest on Friday, July 25.

According to his Web site, prizes range from $10-$100. Tickets for the contest and following dance were $4. The most interesting part of the event is where the money came from, and where the profit will go.

Sponsors listed on his Web site included mostly ethnic restaurants and markets, ranging from El Azteca Mexican Taco Shop to Hollywood Suits.

Also according to the Web site, “all proceeds will go towards defending our poor, hardworking immigrants.”

Due to press deadlines, we were unable to find who won the contest. For more information, go to
