St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
A fantastic group of talented musical acts comprised of Diamond Rio, Jo Dee Messina and Erin Bode, join together for the Completely Unmistakable concert, presented by Vatterott Educational Centers. The one-night only concert benefiting the Vatterott College Scholarship Fund takes place at The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Blvd, on August 4. Doors open at 6 p.m.
The Vatterott College Scholarship Fund, managed by the Greater St. Louis Community Foundation, awards scholarships, in a competitive process, to high achieving enrolled students at a Vatterott, L’École Culinaire culinary school in St. Louis or Court Reporting Institute Campus to help them continue their education. This concert is the main event coordinated each year to help support the Scholarship Fund. With the money raised through donations and the inaugural concert last year, 80 scholarships were presented to students.
“Supporting our students’ efforts to achieve is a top priority for Vatterott College,” said Pam Bell, CEO and president of Vatterott Educational Centers, Inc. “We feel such an impressive group of talented musicians performing to support our goal of giving students the help they need and deserve will draw a great crowd and most notably will underscore the importance of the Scholarship Funds mission.

We like to think of it as seriously great music for a seriously great cause!”
