Music & Memory raises over $1500 at annual fundraiser

Ball State University student organization Music & Memory held its annual ‘A Night to Remember’ fundraiser on Nov. 14th in Pruis Hall, raising a total of $1550 for the cause. Music & Memory is a student service group with the mission of bringing personalized music to nursing home residents, with an emphasis on dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. The team of volunteers uses an array of different multimedia devices, like headphones, iPods, mp3 players, speakers and any other way they can get music out to senior citizens suffering from cognitive disorders. The fundraising event Wednesday night offered a large portion of musical and variety acts including the Ball State University Singers, Flute Guild and Ladies Choice. The fundraising opportunities included a raffle and split-the-pot, and amassed enough money to sustain the group through the rest of the academic year.
