Please join us for this emotionally charged, patriotic, and unforgettable evening! Don’t miss this Concert Tribute to America’s Disabled Veterans and the noble sacrifices of our Armed Forces! Featuring the incredibly talented Lockport High School Music Department, all proceeds will help build the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, DC. Appropriately the Memorial Foundation has chosen “Freedom is not free” as its slogan.
National Spokesperson for the Memorial is acclaimed Actor, Gary Sinise. Star of the hit CBS-TV show "CSI: New York”, Sinise is also famous for his riveting performance as the disabled Vietnam veteran in the movie "Forrest Gump". Please join us to honor all of America’s veterans and particularly those, whose war time courage must endure for the rest of their lives.
The $10 concert ticket price is tax deductible, with checks payable to the DVLMF. All donations received will be sent directly to the Disabled Veterans For Life Memorial Foundation in Washington, DC. Going on sale in September, tickets may be purchased at Mills Jewelers, the Lockport City School District Board of Education Office, and Lockport Town Hall.
Sponsored by Lockport’s Partnership in Patriotism Coalition, the concert will culminate a series of community based fundraising activities planned for the upcoming autumn months. Look for updates on the progress of various local fundraising efforts to be published in the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal. We welcome the entire community to participate in this most worthy effort - individuals, local businesses, and service organizations.
