"This is the first time the university has been able to have a top-hit band for Homecoming," said Michelle Schrage, UNL Homecoming coordinator. "We are thrilled to have this opportunity to work with the Nebraska Children's Home Society Foundation, while helping to create hope for Nebraska children."
"As a UNL alumna, I am excited to help give back to the university while raising funds for Nebraska's children," said Laura Schabloske-Ilg, foundation director. "We are excited to be a part of this great event."
The funds will be used for Nebraska Children's Home's many programs, such as statewide adoption services, foster care for medically fragile children, and New Behaviors, a behavioral intervention program for children aged 2-7 in the Omaha metro area.
