Westchester All Stars For Veterans Project
This wonderful night of holiday music will be headlined this year by Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer John Sebastian of the Lovin Spoonful, legendary rock drummer Carmine Appice of the Vanilla Fudge. Rounding out the show will be the amazing Kristen Capolino, Vaneese Thomas, MaryAnn Renza, Tom Dudley the Blues Budha, Bill Edwards, Pete Levin, Duchess Di, and Scott Staton, Kick off the holiday season with a great night of rockin' music and laughs to benefit veterans organizations such as the Veterans Adaptive Sports Inc., Disabled American Veterans Chapter 144, Friends Of Fallen Heroes NY, and United For The Troops.
This tear the show is Friday, December 7st at 7:30 pm, the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater in Peekskill, New York. This is the 7th annual event and is generously underwritten by the Jeffery and Jeanette Lasdon, The Hudson Room, The Lanza Family Foundation, The Capolino Family, White Plains Linen, Miller & Miller Insurance, D'Angelico Guitars, and the Holiday Inn Express Peekskill.
With the growing success of the past 6 concerts, Westchester All Stars founder Bill Edwards decided to keep the momentum rolling. “This project boasts top-shelf celebrities and the best players in the music business with a connection to the area,” says Edwards. “The amount of work it takes to produce the CD and the live show is a labor of love. But it is nothing in comparison to the sacrifices of the military and their families who are left alone in their absence. I can’t think of any group more deserving than the men and women that have put themselves in harm’s way on our behalf.”
The charities benefiting from this project are, Veterans Adaptive Sports, Inc. promotes rehabilitation of disabled military service veterans by challenging them with physical experiences that we all take for granted as a tool to combat suicide, which is a leading cause of death in veterans. Disabled American Veterans Chapter 144 is located right here in the Hudson Valley and is 100% volunteer-run locally, Friends Of Fallen Heroes NY which helps both veterans and first responders and is based in the NY area, and newly added is United For The Troops who send gift boxes to hundreds of active duty men and women around the world. All of these groups are 501c3 charities and your donations are 100% tax deductible.
