    Just over three months after the deadly shooting inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, some of the most well-known graduates of the school will be performing in South Florida to benefit a fund established for the victims and their families.

    Titled #ParklandStrong, pop punk group New Found Glory will take the stage Wednesday evening at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater starting at 6 p.m. with doors opening an hour before.

    All proceeds from the events – including ticket sales, concessions, merchandise and sponsorships – will go to the official Broward Education Foundation fund to help the families of the 17 people who were killed in the February 14th shooting at the Parkland school, as well as those injured and those who were at the school during the tragedy.

    The event hits home for several members of the band, who graduated from MSD in the 1990s and formed the group while students at the school and residents of Broward County.

    Two other acts will also be performing ahead of the headlining act – Boca Raton native Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional and Ryan Key, formerly of the Jacksonville based alternative rock band Yellowcard.
