William Goodheart Jr.The Goodheart Event was created through a gift from the late Margaret “Peggy” Goodheart Madden and her husband, the late G. William Madden. This gift was made in memory of Mrs. Madden’s father, the late William R. Goodheart Jr., who founded the Music Corporation of America (MCA) in the 1920s.

The gift provides endowment for the William R. Goodheart Fund. The fund’s income is used for William R. Goodheart Entertainment Events held on Millikin’s campus.

The Maddens’ generous gift provides Millikin students with access to outstanding entertainment at no charge.
