Ken Steiner Memorial Benefit Concert
When longtime local resident Ken Steiner passed away suddenly in January 2017, family, friends, and the entire community came together for a memorial to celebrate all the lives he touched through his decades of good work to make the Keweenaw, and the world, a better place. From a long list of friends playing the music to the majority of area restaurants where he worked providing food, there was an overwhelming outpouring of love, support and good will. And, above all a strong sense that the work Ken championed, the positive energy and creative spirit he inspired, would continue, carried forward by those who knew and loved him.
Last year, the Rozsa Center, Michigan Tech’s Dining Services, and Visual and Performing Arts Department, decided to extend that spirit and good will, by committing to host an annual benefit in Ken's honor for his favorite charity: Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly, featuring good food, a cash bar, and once again a host of Ken’s friends and former band mates making the music. This year, the benefit again returns, on Friday, January 11 at 6:30 pm to 11:30 pm, in the Rozsa Center Lobby. Ticket prices are: $10/$20/$30/donation of your choice. 100% of ticket sales will be donated in Ken’s name to Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly. Ticket prices are in a range of “donation levels,” so that everyone who attends can support the fundraiser at a level they choose.
To purchase tickets, please call (906) 487-2073, go online at mtu.edu/rozsa, or visit Ticketing Operations at Michigan Tech’s Student Development Complex (SDC). Tickets will also be available at the Rozsa Box office the evening of the benefit. The Rozsa Box Office opens two hours before event times. Michigan Technological University is an equal opportunity educational institution/equal opportunity employer.
