Now the promoters of Southern Florida’s largest rock festival, Danny Wimmer Presents Fort Rock Fest, is standing with the students and offering motivation to others to follow suit.
The festival announced it would be offering 50% off discounts to weekend passes for students who sign this Change.org petition, “Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won’t.” The press release announcing the discount reads:
“To support initiatives for school safety and create awareness for efforts to promote change, the producers are offering 50% off the price of Monster Energy Fort Rock General Admission weekend tickets for those who sign the “Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won’t” petition created by high school student Julia Kemple of Kalamazoo, Michigan—and signed by 200,000+ people across the nation–in response to the Florida shootings.
Those who would like to utilize the 50% off ticket promotion simply need to send a screenshot of their signed petition or forward their confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The promotion is available through April 1, 2018, while supplies last.”
