[Brief] WMSD-TV hosts Kona Ice fundraiser on Friday

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s TV Club, also known as WMSD-TV, will be holding their first fundraiser of the year on Friday Sept. 22. A Kona Ice snow cone truck will be parked in the senior lot from 2-3:30 p.m. 25% of the profits from the event will go to the program.

The food truck will have a variety of options for students to choose from. Different sizes such as Klassic for $4.00, King for $5.00, Kowabunga for $6.00 and a new size called Color Changing for $7.00 will be available. All refills, no matter the size, will cost $4.00.

In addition to the sizes, students can customize their snow cone with any of the provided flavors. Some favorites include Lucky Lime, Watermelon Wave and Monster Mango.

The club wishes to raise funds for camera equipment and their California trip to STN. STN is a national film/news broadcast competition that WMSD-TV attends annually. In this competition students are given a prompt and have only a certain amount of time to film and edit a video based on it. Last year they won first place in the Human Interest category.

“The fundraiser is to bring in money to help pay for camera equipment and our big trip we take each year to Long Beach, California,” senior and TV Club Treasurer ​​Matthew Kaufman said. “We compete against schools all over the U.S.”

WMSD-TV focuses on teaching its students about the world of film production with lessons ranging from cameras to film direction. With the money they raise, they can help fund their projects for this school year.

“I think everyone should show up tomorrow and support our school’s tv program. We do a lot more than people think,” Kaufman said.

TV Club hopes to bring out everyone to enjoy some shaved ice and help support their program.
