On Sunday, January 16th at 2pm,Â stop by to catch a glimpseÂ ofÂ UND’s version of GLEEÂ and support the Varsity Gentlemen as they raise funds for MeritCare and the Children’s Miracle Network. The Varsity Gentlemen, founded in 2005, is a men’s ensemble run solelyÂ by students andÂ focusedÂ on providing charity concerts in the Grand Forks area to raise money for causes within the community.Â Singing songs with a twist,Â such as ‘Goober Peas’ and ‘Africa,’ you’ll be reminded of episodes of the hit NBC show, ‘The Sing Off’Â and its a capella groups remixingÂ old and newÂ songs.
Having raised funds for The Northlands Rescue Mission, Dru’s Dive, and other area causes, the men of the Varsity Gentlemen enjoy combining music, fellowship, and helping others.
Â So while you’re eagerly awaiting the return of American Idol and to see what exactly J-Lo and Steven Tyler will have to say, check out some real American Idol’sÂ rightÂ here in Grand Forks.Â Their back-to-school charity concert is free to attend, withÂ a free willÂ donationÂ opportunity.
