Join legendary vocalist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Mary Wilson, a founding Supremes Motown member and recent ABC Dancing with the Stars contestant, for an unforgettable concert at the University of Findlay on Nov. 8 that will raise funds to support the student-run UFTV station.
Opening for Wilson will be Findlay band Flag City Rock & Soul Review.
Tickets are $45 at Marathon Center for the Performing Arts Box Office, and can be purchased at mcpatickets.org or by calling 419-423-2787. The event at Winebrenner Theological Seminary will kick off with a casual red-carpet photo opportunity for ticket holders from 6-6:45 p.m. The concert will start at 7 p.m. Also featured will be a silent auction with signed pieces from Mary Wilson.
Recognized as the longest member of the Supremes, Wilson founded the group with Florence Ballard and Diana Ross. Following the group’s phenomenal success in the 1960s and 1970s, Wilson released three solo albums and five singles. She also published two best-selling autobiographies, including “Dreamgirl: My Life As a Supreme,” which was a record-setter for sales in its genre, and “Supreme Faith: Someday We’ll be Together.”
Proceeds from the show will be used to purchase much-needed equipment for UFTV, which provides invaluable experiential learning for communication students.
Generous sponsors for this fundraising event include Marathon Petroleum Corporation, Motown Black & White, the Hancock Hotel, Legends Catering, the City Club, WFIN Radio, and Waterford Bank.
