Aug. 1: Free concert

The fifth annual Jazz Vibes Workshop will present a free public concert at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 1, in the Loudis Recital Hall of the Amy E. du Pont Music Building on the UD's Newark campus.

Aug. 7: iCanConnect at CDS

Experts in disabilities technology will explore the iCanConnect program during a Lunchtime Learning session on Aug. 7 at UD's Center for Disabilities Studies.

“UDFS works so hard to find ways to fundraise for ice time, travel expenses, and competition fees but we wanted to find a way to not only help our team but a larger cause,” said UDFS Vice President Clara Sherman. “Our team decided JDRF would be the perfect cause, as it means a tremendous amount to me. I was diagnosed with Type 1 juvenile diabetes when I was two years old. Skating with diabetes definitely has its highs and lows but it has taught me to overcome obstacles on the road to achieving my goals.”

The show will feature UDFS, the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating intercollegiate team champions, in a variety of solo and group numbers.

There will also be several guest skaters featured in the show, Emmanuel Savary, 2009 intermediate men’s champion and Team USA international competitor; Megan Campbell, a young figure skater at UD; and the dance team of Carter Jones and Richard Sharpe, the 2014 British figure skating championships silver medalists.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children under 10 and for students. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase to win a variety of baskets and there will be an open skate with the cast members from 5:30-6:30. Skate rental for this event is $3.
