Proceeds from this event will fully go towards The Matthew C. Farrell Memorial Fund.

The Matthew C. Farrell Memorial Fund is a scholarship in Matt’s name that’s mission is to give a graduating UHS student who plans to study the Arts, a full ride to Parkland College. The scholarship will be further supported outside of this fundraiser and online donations by way of an annual 5k in Urbana set to take place the first weekend of June 2018.

The scholarship was inspired by Matt’s love for the Urbana-Champaign community and his experiences within the community, including his Art Education at Parkland, which proved to be a pivotal experience for him.  Moreover, he had a passion for running and strived daily to live a healthier lifestyle.  He brought people together through his interests and will continue to do so for years to come. 

THANK YOU in advance to all who plan to attend and support the legacy of an amazing artist, brother, and friend to many.
