Last weekend I was blessed with the opportunity to attend 3 events in the Community with the Pulse 101.7 CityStop car. I figured it was going to make my weekend pretty busy, but I couldn’t resist the chance to spread positive music into the greater Des Moines area. The first event on the itinerary was for Friday night: The Des Moines Red Culture Conference in HyVee Hall. It was the most amazing youth event complete with live worship and entertainment!
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, headlining for the night was one of our favorite Pulse artists, Me In Motion! Set up for the event was a breeze and we had clearance to bring the Pulse car INTO HyVee Hall for the event. Even with my amazing indoor driving skills I had a little trouble parking the car in the right direction. Luckily, our very own Echo was performing at the event with his hip-hop group from Dance Across and was able to take a minute and re-position our vehicle.
Once the car was parked it was time to set up our table with comparative listening guides, bumper stickers, and frisbees for the youth attending the conference. Once the doors opened at 6:30pm, we started pumping Pulse music out of the loud speakers to give everyone some pre-party music. It was so cool to hear Pulse music over such a sweet sound system! People were dancing and singing along to Pulse songs while they checked out all of the vendors who were set up before the show.
After the hour long pre-party, it was time for the event to start and time for the Pulse car to head to another CityStop event (blog posting part 2 tomorrow). I had such a great time at the Red Culture Conference and received this email from Vanessa, the events coordinator who helped make it all happen: “The Iowa Ministry Network loved having 101.7 Pulse at our annual Red Culture Conference. The music and their DJ’s general attitude created a fun and positive atomosphere for our students. The staff was an absolute pleasure to work with!”
Pulse music is great for your kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, teens and young adults. Right now, this generation is lost in pop culture with negative lyrics and images. Pulse helps bring the light into the music industry and then into the hearts of its listeners. I want to take a moment to thank the donors and advertisers who keep this mission alive so we can attend events like this. Right now, your station is struggling to pay its end of year bills so if you haven’t given already, please help by making a donation to Pulse 101.7 either online or by calling 515-987-9995.
