'Teens Take a Stand' with benefit concert to raise funds for domestic violence shelters


The Ponte Vedra High School Helping Betty/Hubbard Club (HBH) will present “Teens Take a Stand” on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Organized entirely by students, the benefit concert will feature performances by Derek Coghlan, the Sharkappellas, the Splash Dance Team, PVHS Jazz Band and Douglas Anderson’s Malik Bilbrew among others. A silent auction will also be held featuring gift cards, a signed football from the Jacksonville Jaguars, four tickets to a Jaguars home game of the winner’s choosing and more. All of the proceeds will be split between Hubbard House and the Betty Griffin Center, two local shelters assisting families dealing with domestic violence.

The variety show will be held in Ponte Vedra High School’s auditorium. Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for adults. For more information, email hsnowden11@gmail.com. Donations can be made at www.gofundme.com/hbh-benefit-concert.

HBH was founded in 2015 by current juniors Harrison Snowden and Martine Gelb to spread awareness of domestic violence and support local shelters. Mrs. Ruth Lopez-Cortes is the club sponsor. Since its creation, the club has raised several hundred dollars for both shelters and has been recognized for its work and contributions. The HBH club is the only high school club of its kind in St. Johns County.
