The MU Retirees Association sponsored a scholarship fund raiser on Sept. 26th at the Rose Music Hall.
Doors open at 5 PM and the concert starts at 6 PM. Tickets are $20/each for ages 12 and over. Children under 12 are free.
The name of the scholarship is the Kitty Dickerson MURA Scholarship and the concert will be performed by the internationally known Dave & Deke Combo. The Deke of this combo is the son of Kitty Dickerson who was a retired MU faculty member and chair of textile and apparel management at the University of Missouri. She was president of MURA when she died in January 2017. The Kitty Dickerson MURA Scholarship provides funds to MU/UM students whose parents are MU/UM staff employees.
Deke, a graduate of Hickman High School who grew up playing music and going to concerts at The Blue Note, is featured in several dozen CDs and LPs in such musical genres as retro swing, country, jazz, rock, pop, easy listening, oldies, folk and rhythm and blues.
Concert goers should bring lawn chairs for this outdoor venue. Food and beverages will be available for sale inside throughout the evening.
