Everyone is invited to Tech’s Explore Performance Event Series

January 20, 2017

Indiana Tech, with the support of the Auer Foundation, is presenting four free upcoming performances that are open to the public. The performances will be held in the Multi-Flex Theater of the university’s Academic Center at 1600 E. Washington Blvd.

The Edward D. and Ione Auer Foundation is a private charitable foundation based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, that awards grants exclusively for charitable purposes. Ione Breeden Auer created the foundation in 1984. Funding for the foundation comes from lifetime gifts from Edward D. and Ione Auer, as well as the proceeds of their estates.

Auer funding is making possible the two-event Lunch Box Music Series, Celebrate Gospel and Speak Out! w/Odd?Rod. Additional details about all performances are below.
