Last Thursday's inaugural Keezer Legacy Concert was one for the ages. If you joined us at Pablo Center or online via the streaming link, you know about the spectacular music and great storytellers throughout the show.
As RG Conlee shared in his opening remarks, "A memorial concert is for looking back. This night is about the Keezers' legacy and looking forward." The scholarship fund created in Ron and Mary's memory is precisely about looking forward to provide talented Blugolds with awards that help them pursue their music passion at UW-Eau Claire. The scholarship fund needs your help to build the balance so that it can be awarded to a student next spring.
To help build the scholarship fund and share the music with more people, we'll share a link to the recorded Keezer concert in appreciation to donors who contribute $25 or more to the Keezer Memorial Jazz Scholarship before the end of the year.
As a tribute to their shared legacy at UW-Eau Claire, the Ron and Mary Keezer Memorial Jazz Scholarship provides talented Blugolds with financial support to pursue their passions and talents for jazz at UW-Eau Claire.
Proceeds from the first annual Ron & Mary Keezer Legacy Concert will support the jazz scholarship named in their memory. Additional gifts can help ensure that the fund is endowed and the scholarship will be awarded on an annual basis for generations to come. Our goal of $10,000 raised in donations on the occasion of our first concert gets us started on that path to make the scholarship a lasting one.
Help us carry on the legacy of Ron and Mary Keezer by making a gift today in their memory. Although future generations of students will not be as lucky as the past 50 years of Blugolds to learn from Ron and Mary, they can still feel the impact of the Keezer legacy through the jazz scholarship that honors them.
