We’re thrilled to announce our 8th Tomatoes Got Talent show which showcases the talents of women over 40, who do not earn their living with their talents. Many started out as professionals and segued into other careers – we’ve had doctors, teachers, social workers, paralegals – who step onto the stage and become super stars. Several of our talented alumni now have their own cabaret shows and several have been nominated for and or won MAC awards. Who will win this year’s Tomatoes Got Talent?

  • Cheryl Benton

    The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes. Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
