The University of Arkansas has announced a range of events this weekend to begin a push for Campaign Arkansas, the school's new fund drive.

One tidbit of note in light of weekend reporting on the $450,000 "gala" Friday for invited guests, an event that has undergone some retooling on account of money issues. While it will be open to a select few, "Excerpts of the performances and stories shared throughout the evening will be available for public viewing after the event." Perhaps a copy of the guest list will be made available, too.

Among other events:

* Free concert by the Commodores  at 8 p.m. Thursday on the East Baum Stadium Parking Lot. The Arkansas Alumni Association is footing the bill. It's open to the public, but tickets are required. They may be picked up at the Arkansas Union on Sept. 13 and 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Will Call at the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House will be on Sept. 14 from 3-5 p.m. and on Sept. 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will also be a Will Call tent at the concert.
Trey O’Dell, a senior in the Sam M. Walton College of Business and a former contestant on NBC’s The Voice, will open the show at 7:15 p.m. His show will include, "Arkansas for Life," a song he wrote for the campaign. You can buy it on iTunes, with proceeds going to scholarships.

* Dedication of the Fowler House Garden and Conservatory at 3:30 p.m. Saturday. This is the chancellor's residence, built in part with a $2.93 million gift from Wallace W. and Jama M. Fowler.

* The Razorbacks play Texas State in football at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. A campaign video will be shown during the first quarter and Trey O'Dell's song will be shown at halftime.
