The 30th anniversary of Prince‘s Paisley Park complex in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is happening next month, with several events scheduled to commemorate the occasion.
On September 7, the Grammy-nominated musical trio KING will appear at the PRN Alumni Foundation‘s inaugural benefit. Then, on September 9, “Stories from Inside the Park” alumni discussion panels will take place, featuring talks and Q&A sessions about fashion, engineering and innovation.
In an official statement, PRN Alumni Foundation board president Jacqui Thompson says, “As former employees who helped contribute to Prince’s many creative endeavors, we have cause to celebrate the magnitude of his work along with the impact of his many philanthropic projects.”
The PRN Alumni Foundation was launched by former Paisley Park employees in Prince’s honor. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to supporting youth programs that help to educate and enrich music and the arts, among other initiatives.
Tickets for the PRN Alumni Foundation inaugural benefit and Stories from Inside the Park panels are on sale now. For more information and/or to purchase, head over to PRNAlumni.org.
