Any music lover dreams of getting free tickets to see some of their favorite artists, so when Zara Silva-Landry, a freshman, heard her name called over the intercom announcing that she had won two tickets to a concert featuring The Wonder Years, Pierce the Veil, All Time Low, and A Day to Remember, she was ecstatic.

“I was like in a state of shock,” Silva-Landry said. “I was totally not expecting to win.”

The concert was held at the Tsongas Center in Lowell on Tuesday, October 8, and according to Silva-Landry, it was an amazing experience.

“The concert was awesome,” Silva-Landry reflects. “My favorite part was watching All Time Low perform my favorite songs like ‘Weightless’ and ‘The Reckless and the Brave’.  I loved just watching them on stage having fun and dancing around…It was literally one of the best times of my life.”

The tickets were raffled off at the club fair on October 2 by the Warrior Weekly.  The purpose of the raffle was to raise money for a membership to a national organization that promotes student journalism called the Journalism Education Association, or the JEA.  Thanks to the raffle, the Warrior Weekly raised almost enough money to pay for their yearly membership.

The tickets were given to the Warrior Weekly by a company called Moxie.  Moxie is a free service founded in 1997 that provides high school organizations, such as newspapers and TV programs, free concert tickets. So thanks Moxie and to all who bought raffle tickets!
