The MiraCosta College Umoja Program presents its 7th Annual Soul Fusion fundraiser, featuring Jazz and Jokes. Hosted by Daran Howard, and featuring music by Big with Donnie Troy and comedy by Gilbert Esquivel. The evening promises to entertain, while providing support for students.
Proceeds from Soul Fusion will be used to support Umoja students through scholarships and an emergency fund to assist students who experience financial challenges during the semester that might threaten their continued enrollment without intervention.
The Umoja community at MiraCosta College is a program designed to assist African American and other historically underrepresented students who desire to transfer to four-year colleges and universities and earn their degrees. Through Umoja, students can prepare for transfer, while taking culturally relevant coursework, and participate in enriching activities with students who share similar goals.
Soul Fusion: Jazz & Jokes is on Saturday, February 22, in the Concert Hall (Bldg. 2400) on the Oceanside Campus, 1 Barnard Dr., 92056. There will be a VIP reception from 5–6:30 p.m. in Studio A, with food, wine, and a silent auction. The music and comedy show begins at 7 p.m.
Those who have attended in years past can attest that this will be a great family friendly evening and our Umoja students would love to have your support.
