This information is from the "Cam Jam" Facebook page advertising a memorial concert for Cameron Vennard, the Nipher Middle School student killed when he was struck by an Amtrak passenger train on May 30.
A benefit concert called "Cam Jam" and is being coordinated by family and friends of Cam Vennard. The concert will feature The Sages Band with special appearances by Ben Vennard, Aaron Doerr, Ian Johnson and Owen Wilhelms. The "Cam Jam" will be Thursday, July 12, from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Kirkwood Station Plaza.
"Cam loved music so we thought a "Cam Jam" was a great way to honor Cam's memory. We will play songs by Cam's favorite artists," said Dillon Wilfong, Cam's friend, neighbor and member of The Sages Band.
The concert is free and tax-deductible donations can be made to the Kirkwood School District. Donations will be used to establish the Cam Vennard Music and Vocal Scholarship at Nipher Middle School. The scholarship funds may be used for anything that is related to music, such as instrument rentals, music lessons, books, etc. The funds will also establish a memorial at Kirkwood High School from the Class of 2016.
Donations will be accepted at the concert or can be mailed to the Kirkwood School District Community Relations Office, Cam Vennard Memorial Scholarship, 11289 Manchester Road, 63122.
