On Nov. 19, 2017, at 7:00 PM, the Gulf Coast Symphony is performing a concert for Hurricane Irma relief at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.  Pride and Patriotism is proud to be a sponsor of this event, which will include patriotic music and feature the 13 winning entries from this year’s abbreviated contests, as well as a table to supply information about the organization.   

                Tickets for the event are available at at three levels $5 and $10 tickets are downstairs and in the mezzanine; balcony tickets are free.  However, everyone, even those using free tickets, must have a ticket with a seat number. Calling or ordering the tickets online will entail a $9 seat charge for each one, so it is best to go to Mann Hall and pick them up. Audience members are encouraged to bring non-perishable food supplies, pet foods, or a check (fully deductible) written to the Southwest Florida Community Foundation.  All proceeds will be used locally and distributed by several area nonprofit charitable groups.  Contributions may also be made online at or by texting GIVESWFL to 444-9999.

Pride and Patriotism 2017, originally scheduled this year for Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017 at ​Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall has been cancelled due to Hurricane Irma.
