Freed-Hardeman asks for prayers in advance of Cosby appearance (Updated)
The university committed to a contract with Cosby several months ago to speak at its 50th Benefit Dinner Dec. 5, university officials said.
University officials released the following statement:
Our 50th FHU Benefit Dinner remains scheduled for Friday, Dec. 5, to focus on our main goal — providing an avenue for donors to invest in the students’ lives.We committed to a contract with Bill Cosby many months ago after soliciting input from alumni and friends.While recent developments have drawn attention to our event because of the speaker, we hope that people will remember:1.) this dinner is about helping students, and2.) while we are reading stories in the media, they represent real people whose lives will be affected long after FHU’s dinner has passed.Please join us in praying for healing and peace for those involved.
