“We know that our campus community has more caring and compassionate students than any other mid-state institution, and we're ready to kick off another stellar year of fundraising for our worthy cause,” says Tabatha Sarco, chair of event entertainment.

Proceeds will be combined with funds to be raised by the Govs One Night Stand, a 12-hour event that will be held Oct. 28-29 in APSU's Memorial Health Building. During this marathon event, APSU students, faculty and alumni enjoy dodgeball, comedians and, most importantly, a celebration of life.

Admission to the Sept. 3 benefit concert is $5.
