Musical showcase raises awareness for bullying

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The Fly Bully Management group visited downtown with a touch of urban flair, all to raise awareness for bullying.

The "Bomb Bay" Volume One showcase took place at the Martin Theatre in Downtown Panama City Saturday night.

The event drew in urban music acts from the surrounding areas.

The showcase aimed to help spread awareness about bullying issues that they say lead to anger in children and missed opportunities in education.

Jo'rel Jebre, of Bay County MUSE Media said, "It's just coincidence that we chose this subject matter before this last tragedy that just happened recently, so it's just a sign that it was right on time."

The event was hosted by 99.3 "The Beat" and performers ranged from local acts to acts from Franklin County, Apalachicola, and even Port. St Joe.
