TOP CHEFS AND PERFORMERS ANNOUNCED FOR PARKLAND’S INAUGURAL
‘ACTIONS FOR CHANGE FOOD AND MUSIC FESTIVAL’ ON SEPT. 30
The Festival Includes the Debut of MSD Student Activists’ New Album “Wake Up America”

Parkland, FL (September 13, 2018) – Marjory Stoneman Douglas students and parents have teamed up with some of the nation’s top chefs and musical performers to present the inaugural “Actions for Change Food and Music Festival,” to benefit Shine MSD and Change The Ref, two organizations formed in response to the horrific events that unfolded on February 14.

Alyssa Milano will kick off the event on Sunday, September 30, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Pine Trails Park in Parkland, Fl. The event will feature the debut of a new album, “Wake Up America” written by MSD students in collaboration with the equality-driven brand, The Female Quotient, and Peter Yarrow, from the world renowned music group Peter, Paul and Mary, to raise awareness about gun safety.

The festival will close with a cast performance of “Shine,” the song chosen by Concerts Across America to End Gun Violence as the one song for peace, performed across the county at each of their events.

Goals of the event are four-fold:
1. Provide healing by bringing love, light and hope through the arts
