Rosza Center to host memorial benefit for charity

HOUGHTON — The impact of one life is not to be underestimated.

In that spirit, a memorial benefit is planned for longtime Keweenaw resident Ken Steiner who passed away Jan. 1, 2017. All proceeds will go to Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly, where Steiner volunteered for 30 years.

Known for his music, cooking and volunteer work, Steiner left a legacy of giving.

The benefit is planned for Jan. 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. in The Rozsa Center Lobby. There will be food, music and a cash bar.

The music will be provided by Steve Jones and the Garden City Hot Club playing at 7 p.m., Uncle Pete’s All-Star BBQ Blues Band at 8:15 p.m., and Outlaw’d at 9:30 p.m.

For those wishing to attend, the ticket prices are in “donation levels” of $10, $20, $30 or more according to a Rozsa center press release.

Tickets can be purchased at (906) 487-2073, online at, through ticketing operations at Michigan Tech’s Student Development Complex. Tickets will also be available at the Rozsa Box office the evening of the benefit until two hours before the start time.
