Harry Potter trivia night packs Corner Store and local high school jazz bands raise funds for trip to Juilliard.

Nearly Brainless Nicks

The highly anticipated Harry Potter Trivia Night, hosted by Instagramers of Plant City and The Corner Store, saw a packed house as dozens of teams flocked to the event. The Corner Store provided Harry Potter-themed food and partnered with Mad Dragon Studio for magical prizes.

The highest-scoring teams and the winner of the costume contest walked away with the coveted prizes. The intense turnout sparked the promise of a Harry Potter book-themed trivia later this year as this one was entirely based on the films.

Previous events hosted by the duo have included Craft Beer and Coloring and Craft Beer and Board Games.

Jazzy evening in downtown Plant City

The Plant City High School Jazz Band performed at the monthly Strawberry Classic Cruise-In as a fundraiser for the group’s trip to Juilliard in New York City. The group showed off their talent in front of Big Dog’s Patio and viewers dropped off donations into an open case.

The group has been fundraising since December and has the opportunity to see a Broadway show, an opera, a performance by the New York Philharmonic, the Jazz and Lincoln Center and potentially have a master class at Juilliard.
