Middlesex Community College Foundation’s Celebrity Forum will return in June with Oscar and Grammy award-winning singer, actress and author Darlene Love.
Love will perform at Lowell Memorial Auditorium at 8 p.m. Monday, June 6. A donor reception and dinner will be held at 6 p.m. Proceeds from the event provide support for scholarships for Middlesex students.
“One of the greatest barriers our students face in getting their education is financial, and the MCC Foundation continues to play a vital role in helping to ease the burden of not being able to afford college for so many,” said MCC President Phil Sisson. “The event will be a great way to bring the community together to celebrate the success of Middlesex students. I am looking forward to witnessing a tremendous performance and having the opportunity to speak to this amazing talent about her lived experience and professional journey.”
Love has been called “one of the greatest singers of all time” by Rolling Stone and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.
This year’s Celebrity Forum is the first in-person event since 2019. The 2020 forum was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and last year’s event was held virtually.
