Karli Rose Kell Music Scholarship Fund at the RME

The Karli Rose Kell Music Scholarship Fund at RME has already received almost $100,000 in pledges and donations from corporate organizations and private individuals.

Each and every dollar you donate goes to directly to benefit area youth who might not otherwise be able to afford music lessons at RME, KIDSTOCK tuition, Sound Lab tuition or fees for the other educational programs offered through the RME.

This fund was established by the late Ellis Kell, the 'Godfather' of RME, and his wife Kristi, in memorial of their late daughter Karli Rose, who died in an auto accident in 2002.
