JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (March 3, 2019) – Tobacco Free Florida is holding a concert to promote anti-vaping on the University of North Florida campus in April 2020.
The concert, which features local band Flipturn, is part of Tobacco Free Florida’s campaign to end vaping amongst teens. Tobacco Free Florida and Flipturn will be giving a short speech about the dangers of vaping before the concert begins.
“What most teens don’t realize is that while the smoke in cigarettes is what causes many of the major health problems associated with smoking, nicotine still creates a wide range of health problems,” said Toby Bacco, director of Tobacco Free Florida. “Teens are typically very impressionable and are more likely to give in to peer pressure, which is why we are heading up this campaign.”
The event will have several food trucks including The Happy Grilled Cheese and Taco Lu. Activities and games such as corn hole, horseshoe and spike ball will be available for use during the concert.
UNF students and students from surrounding high schools will have free admission to the concert. The tickets will be $25, including a food ticket for the food trucks, for general admission.
“We are honored to be a part of this influential event we hope the students will have fun and enjoy themselves while also recognizing the significance of the cause at the same time,” said Tristan Duncan, lead guitarist for Flipturn.
The concert will be held at the J.B. Coxwell Amphitheater on the UNF campus on April 3, 2020 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
