Sixteen Cornell a cappella groups will join together for a benefit concert, March 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. in Kennedy Hall’s Call Auditorium. Proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the Emergency CARE Fund, which assists Cornell employees experiencing a financial hardship due to an unforeseen or unavoidable event.
Emergency CARE Fund applicants who are approved for funding can receive between $200 and $1,500, depending on the circumstances.
The program is funded through the donations of faculty, staff and others. All donations go directly to employees. Any amount not awarded in a given year is carried forward to the next fiscal year.
Tickets are now on sale: $10 for adults, $8 for students and $4 for children ages 12 and under. Pizza and concessions will be available at the event. For more information, see the concert’s Facebook event page.
