Theta Xi Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Hosts Dome Concert with J. Cole and Elle Varner
The Theta Xi chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity presents “Friday Night Lights: Culture for Service Benefit Concert,” featuring Grammy award- nominated artists J. Cole & Elle Varner in the Carrier Dome Friday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The event ties in with Phi Beta Sigma’s 100th year of service.

Over the past two years, the Theta Xi chapter has raised more than $30,000 from concerts hosted in Goldstein Auditorium in the Schine Student Center, featuring such artists as Fabolous in 2012 and Big Sean in 2013.
The proceeds from these concerts have been donated to such causes as helping those suffering from the severe drought conditions in the Horn of Africa. This year’s proceeds will go to the March of Dimes Foundation; the Sigma Beta Club, which is the fraternity’s auxiliary mentorship program for middle and high school students; and several local foundations and schools.
