The University of Maine at Fort Kent’s Foundation is holding its fourteenth annual dinner/performance fundraising event on Saturday, April 27.

The annual dinner/performance is the Foundation's primary fundraising event of the year. This year's featured performers are the Elton John tribute ensemble, Yellow Brick Road.


The five-person Yellow Brick Road is led by Gerald Brann. Brann, who has been performing professionally for nearly 25 years, portrays Elton John and his portrayal has won him rave reviews.

The celebration brings together businesses, friends and family from the UMFK community, including staff, faculty, students, and community friends.

The event kicks off with a social hour at 5 p.m. followed by a five-course gourmet dinner to begin at 6 p.m., both in Nowland Hall. After dinner, the evening's festivities will move to the Fox Auditorium at 8:30 p.m., where Yellow Brick Road will perform.

The evening concludes with an after-performance reception of dessert and champagne at 9:30 in the Nadeau Hall Conference Room.

Tickets for the dinner/performance fundraising event are available through the UMFK Development Office by calling 834-7800. Individual tickets for the performance only are also available.
