Mu members help organize benefit concert for P.E.T.

What's better than kicking off Spring Break 2011 by attending a benefit concert for a local organization right here in Columbia? That's the question Mu members Kelly Nelson (pc 07), Jessica Hughes (pc 07), and their friends Sara Price and Dani Wexelman (both members of the Alpha Delta Pi chapter at Mizzou) asked earlier this semester when they began planning a way to help Personal Energy Transportation (P.E.T.) fundraise.

P.E.T. specializes in providing means of mobility, such as specially designed wheelchairs, to those in need in undeveloped countries. P.E.T. operates from Columbia and relies greatly on the local community to help provide funding for their operation. Nelson and Hughes, seeing this need, decided they could help motivate the Mizzou campus community to pitch in. All proceeds from the concert will go directly towards P.E.T. to further help their mission for mobility to others. Check out a video about P.E.T. below by KOMU's Alex Rozier!

Here are the details:
The FIRST 200 tickets are ONLY $8 and $10 after that.
You can STUDENT CHARGE or order your ticket on, the direct link is posted below:

The bands performing are:
The John Gurney Band
The High Street Nephews
Ewat & Klosty (Adam Klosterman and Eric Watkins)
Jack Campbell and Alex Heller

With great drink specials, a raffle of signed sports memorabilia by the Missouri football and basketball players and a great band lineup, it is a guaranteed good time.The night kicks off at 7:30 and the first band will go on at 8:30. So please come out to not only support the efforts of your Mu sisters, but to also help out a great cause. Be sure to bring all of your friends, listen to some great music and support this amazing organization who gives back so much to those who are less fortunate than us. See you on March 24th!

Way to "Do Good" Kelly and Jessica - you are seniors everyone should look up to : )
