Northern Illinois University’s Public Relations Student Society of America Chapter will host its annual benefit concert “Rock Forward, Together” at 9 p.m. May 2 at Fatty’s Pub and Grille, 1312 W. Lincoln Highway, DeKalb.

The benefit raises funds for NIU’s “Forward Together, Forward” Scholarship Fund. The goal is to raise $1,000 for the scholarship fund in memory of the students who lost their lives in the Feb. 14, 2008, campus shooting.

Rock Forward, Together unites the NIU campus and its surrounding community through music, which will be provided by the cover band Mike & Joe. Admission is $5 and the event is open to the public. Pre-sale tickets cost $10 and include Fatty’s appetizers. Pre-sale tickets will be available on campus and online the week before the event.

The event also will feature a raffle with prizes including Cubs and White Sox tickets. Winners will be drawn at midnight. Participants must be present to win.
