Live @ Lunch - Jillian Rae

Wednesday, March 4 from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Memorial Union Lower Level
Jillian Rae has been a heavy hitter in the Minnesota music scene for years, playing with as many musicians as humanly possible. In the past, she had been known to lend her fiddle chops in the Duluth-based band Two Many Banjos, and also spent some time fronting the local pop country staple, The Killer Hayseeds. Currently, when she isn't performing with her own band, you can still catch her playing fiddle and singing with a number of bands around town: Corpse Reviver (Early American Folk, Bluegrass), Steve Kaul & The Brass Kings (Folk Revisionist), Brian Just Band ('60's California Pop), and The Blackberry Brandy Boys (Cosmic Country), and the Fiddle Heirs (four fiddles and a bass). Come join Jillian Rae on March 4th for Live @ Lunch!

Help Support the the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities' 

A Pepsi Recycling center that was recently installed in the Memorial Union.

To help PepsiCo reach its goal of increasing the U.S. beverage container recycling rate to 50 percent by 2018, PepsiCo created the Dream Machine recycling initiative. Dream Machines are interactive kiosks that provide students and college and university communities with an easy, convenient and rewarding way to make a difference by recycling their bottles and cans on the go. For every bottle or can students place in the Dream Machine, they receive reward points to redeem for prizes, including local entertainment, dining and more. It's a win-win for everyone.

When you recycle your bottles and cans with PepsiCo Recycling, we provide dedicated support to further the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities' mission to provide training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities resulting from military service.

$2 Million - Pepsico is donating up to $2 Million to EBV with $1.5 million donate since 2010
4.1 Million - pounds of recycled bottles and cans have been collected via PepsiCo Recycling to support EBV. 

*This may at times not be a completely comprehensive list of events. Check the University Calendar for more.
