​Friday Nights in the Park Concludes Tonight

Friday Nights in the Park (FNIP), sponsored by the Sewanee Business Alliance (SBA), concludes on Friday, July 19, with the Jess Goggans Band. The event is free and open to the public. University Avenue will be closed at 6 p.m., with food and drink available for purchase. The band takes the Angel Park stage at 7:30 p.m. The rain location is the American Legion Hall.

Homegrown and raised in the Northeast corner of Alabama, singer/songwriter Jess Goggans puts her entire soul into her music and every ounce of her heart into every single performance. Recognized for her sultry southern grit, soulful melodies and high-energy stage presence, it is said that you can literally feel her voice moving through you. Jess’ music defies genre; it’s been referred to as “get down music,” with influences of funk, rock and blues. She is accompanied by some of the finest musicians in the Southeast.

The SBA is also sponsoring a reverse raffle to benefit Sewanee Angel Park, Community Action Committee and Housing Sewanee, with a chance for participants to win up to $5,000.

Tickets for the reverse raffle are $100 each and are for sale at Beauty by Tabitha, Big A Marketing, The Blue Chair, Fine Arts at the Mountain, the Lemon Fair, University Realty and Woody’s Bicycles. Tickets are also available at the Friday Nights in the Park, and online at .

During each Friday Nights in the Park, there will be a drawing for a special prize. The ticket drawn will be placed back in the pool for another chance to win. The $5,000 grand prize drawing will take place during the ninth annual AngelFest on Oct. 4. Participants do not have to be present to win.
