Livingstone to kick off United Negro College Fund campaign Friday
SALISBURY — Livingstone College’s annual United Negro College Fund kickoff — “Friday Night Blues and Jazz at the Pavilion” — will be at 7 p.m. Friday at the newly renovated pavilion on campus.
The outdoor pavilion is next to Aggrey Cafeteria and features a deck and stage.
Music will be performed by Bob Paolina, George W. Smith Jr. and Pat “Mother Blues” Cohen.
The campaign goal is $125,000 and includes the assigned solicitation areas of Salisbury/Rowan County, Davidson County, Randolph County and Statesville, said Deborah Johnson, Livingstone’s UNCF director.
As one of 37 member colleges and universities of UNCF, Livingstone receives a range of support that enables it to keep its academic programs strong and its tuition affordable. The fund provides its member colleges with unrestricted money for operations, scholarships and internships in an effort to provide education opportunities to students who have the desire to attend college but not the resources.
“We are excited about this special, purposeful event at our renovated pavilion and look forward to enjoying great music and refreshments in a nice setting under the stars,” Johnson said.
In case of bad weather, the program will be held at the events center on campus.
The kickoff is free, but contributions to benefit the United Negro College Fund will be accepted.
