Johnson County Community College Multicultural Night

A fundraiser for JCCC’s partner high school and a medical clinic in the war-torn region of northern Uganda

Johnson County Community College is hosting the second annual Multicultural Night, a fundraiser for JCCC’s partner high school and a medical clinic in the war-torn region of northern Uganda, on Friday, April 16, beginning with international food and a silent auction at 6 p.m. in the Multicultural Center, room 238 of the General Education Building, followed by an international cultural arts performance at 7 p.m. in the Craig Community Auditorium, room 233 GEB.

Multicultural Night is co-sponsored by the Invisible Children United, a JCCC student organization, and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The performance will spotlight a diverse group of JCCC student talent in a show that blends vast worlds of dance, song, poetry and identity through fashion. In addition, the performance’s purpose is to signify a collective observance of the current tragedy in northern Uganda.

Proceeds go to Invisible Children’s “Schools 4 Schools” campaign helping to rebuild Gulu Senior Secondary School and construction of a security fence around the medical clinic at Awach Internal Displaced Persons Settlement, near Gulu.

Tickets are $20 for the general public and $10 for students with a valid I.D., with checks made payable to JCCC. There is a limit of four tickets per student at the $10 discounted rate. Tickets can be purchased at the Student Activities Desk, room 106 of the Student Center, or online at www.jccc.edu/ODEI.
