The Robert I. “Bob” Peacock Memorial Fund was established in honor of this true ambassador for our community and huge advocate of the symphony.
Before passing away unexpectedly in December of 2015, Bob had agreed to participate in the local Dancing with the Stars competition. He selected the symphony as his charity of choice and had set a personal goal of raising $100,000 to benefit youth education. With the help of Bob’s wife, Diane, and his best friend, Otto Krueger, Bob’s vision became a reality. Otto danced on behalf of the symphony at the April 2016 Dancing with the Stars competition and brought us closer to our goal.
The purpose of this fund is to empower students through music education, which will be accomplished by enhancing existing programs while also looking at the possibility of adding some exciting new opportunities.
Checks, made payable to the DSO, can also be mailed to our office at 2728 Asbury Rd, Suite 900, Dubuque IA 52001. For those who prefer to make an on-line contribution, please donate securely here.
