Livingstone College will host a Friday Night Blues and Jazz United Negro College Fund Campaign Kick-Off on Nov. 17.

The concert will be held at the Livingstone College School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts, 530 S. Jake Alexander Blvd. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Entertainment will include the Livingstone College Jazz Ensemble, Rebecca Stinson and Pat “Mother Blues” Cohen. Livingstone’s campaign goal is $125,000.

UNCF provides its 37 member colleges and universities with unrestricted funds for operations, scholarships and internships in an effort to provide educational opportunities to deserving students who have the desire to attend college, but not the resources.

“UNCF's mission is to build a robust and nationally-recognized pipeline of under-represented students who, because of UNCF support, become highly-qualified college graduates, and to ensure that our network of member institutions is a respected model of best practice in moving students to and through college,” said Deborah Johnson, Livingstone’s UNCF director.

UNCF member schools are assigned solicitation areas. Livingstone’s are Davidson and Randolph counties, Salisbury/Rowan County and Statesville.

The event is free, but contributions will be accepted.
