“A Cappella Cares” benefit concert will be March 11

Sixteen Cornell a cappella groups will hold a benefit concert March 11, 6-8 p.m., in Call Auditorium. Proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the Emergency CARE Fund, which assists Cornell employees experiencing a non-recurring sudden or emergency-related financial hardship due to an unforeseen or unavoidable event.

The Emergency CARE Fund (Cornellians Aiding and Responding to Employees) is funded through the generous donations of faculty, staff and others who are interested in supporting employees who are in financial need due to an unplanned circumstance. Applicants who are approved for funding can receive between $200 and $1,500, depending on the circumstances.

Without these donations, the CARE Fund is not able to offer these awards. 100 percent of donations go directly to employees. Any amount not awarded in a given year will be carried forward to the next fiscal year.
