Pepperdine University Black Alumni Council Proudly Presents
The First Annual "BAC Sound Investment" Scholarship Concert
A Special Evening Benefitting African American Students at Pepperdine University
Long Beach, CA (September 26, 2013) — The Pepperdine University Black Alumni Council (BAC) will host the first annual "BAC SOUND INVESTMENT" scholarship concert on Saturday, October 5, 2013. The event will take place at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach (700 Queensway Drive, Long Beach, CA) from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The goal of the event is to raise scholarship funds for African American students at Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business and Management.
The benefit concert will feature a live performance by music aficionado Derek Bordeaux, with a special performance by Princeton Parker. For more than 35 years, Bordeaux has performed in Southern California and Las Vegas, becoming one of the most sought-after artists for his sultry renditions of Motown classics, Jazz, R&B and Blues standards, including an amazing rendition of Luther Vandross' "Never Too Much."
In addition to the soulful and smooth sounds of Bourdeaux, participants may reconnect with fellow alumni, family and friends, while supporting a great cause. Hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served; raffle prizes will be awarded throughout the evening from Delta Airlines, The Parking Spot and more.
"It is with great pride that the BAC supports the African American students and community at Pepperdine University's business school," said BAC Chairman Charles Franklin. "As a Pepperdine graduate, I know first-hand the quality of education students receive and the opportunities that follow. We would appreciate the support of everyone who understands the importance of providing assistance to current and prospective students."
Individual tickets and sponsorships are available. A portion of the ticket purchase is tax deductible. All net proceeds will go towards the scholarship endowment fund to educate African American students at Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business and Management.
