The student-led radio station, 97.1 The Prowl, and Jag Pantry are teaming up to bring South students a night of live music and poetry for a great cause. On Saturday, Nov. 16, the second annual Prowlfest will be held at Satori Coffee House.
Students will be granted free entrance with a donation of one canned good or other non-perishable items, such as bottled water, granola bars, etc. This is a great chance for students to enter into the holiday season with a chance to go out and be charitable while also having fun.
Ben Morris, Operations Manager at The Prowl, says that they wanted to use this fundraiser to give back to the people closest to them; the students at South.
“We’ve just found it’s a really good way to help out the community. Last year, we donated the money we raised to help animal shelters in Panama City after the hurricane came through,” Morris said. “We thought we should do something for the students here at South since they’re our main audience and the ones we have the most contact with. We wanted to show that we genuinely care about our colleagues and how they’re doing.”
Doors will open at 8 p.m. with performances by Powerline Poets, Slothracer, and Paid to Pretend to begin at 9 p.m. The event is open to all ages.
With hopes to bring some light starting the holiday season, The Prowl hopes to bring the community together here at South.
“We wanted to show that we genuinely care about our colleagues and how they’re doing. It’s more than just playing music and hosting shows for us. We’re a part of the community,” Morris said.
All donated items will go directly to Jag Pantry, the on-campus food bank. If you have any questions about Jag Pantry you can contact them on through the email listed on their website.
