The NSCA Education Foundation has announced the Drunk Unkles’ first NSCA Education Foundation Charity Concert of the year, scheduled for June 12 at B.B. King’s in Orlando FL. Now in their 14th year of supporting the NSCA Education Foundation, the Drunk Unkles have generated more than $1 million for the industry through this annual event.
Donations gathered during the charity concert allow the NSCA Education Foundation to establish meaningful and impactful programs, offer scholarships, and provide training opportunities for new professionals and industry veterans. This year, all proceeds will go to Ignite, an industry initiative established by the NSCA Education Foundation. Ignite’s goal is to generate interest in communications technology by connecting local high school and college students with manufacturers, dealers and integrators to spark imagination and encourage students to consider new career paths in this industry.
“As Ignite connects students with future employers in our industry, we want to make sure this initiative continues,” Chuck Wilson, Director of the NSCA Education Foundation, said. “We’re already seeing the difference Ignite is making in the lives of students—and in the businesses of integrators—and this NSCA Education Foundation Charity Concert will raise funds to ensure that its success continues.”
