March 10, 2003 - The Aquinas College Programming Board will present an evening concert to benefit hate crime awareness. Musician Randi Driscoll will perform on Tuesday, April 1st at 8:00 p.m. in the Kretschmer Recital Hall, Art and Music Center on the Aquinas College Campus.

Randi Driscoll, a Southern California native, plays piano driven acoustic music that is as modern as it is classical. She is also known for her work with the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Driscoll attributes her greatest personal success to the release of the benefit single "What Matters," written in memory of Matthew Shepard, the Wyoming man who lost his life in a brutal hate crime.

Tickets are $8 for non-students, $5 for students with an ID, and $3 for Aquinas Students. All proceeds from the evening will go to Driscoll's anti-hate crime foundation, Love Has No Face. For additional information, contact the Aquinas College Programming Board at 459-8281, ext. 4117.
