There is no admission fee, donations will go entirely to the Pure Imagination Fund. The Pure Imagination Fund has been established through the University Foundation to create an endowed scholarship in memory of Music Education major, Ashli Abner. Ashli lost her fight with lupus in August 2016. It was her dream to teach music. She believed in the power of music to positively influence lives. She imagined how the world could be a better place when children have the chance to learn and experience music. Ashli lost her fight with lupus in August 2016 before she was able to realize her dream. We want to honor Ashli and her dream with an endowed scholarship for Music Education students studying at CSU-Pueblo. To keep Ashli’s dream present in future students we need to raise $25,000.
