Legends In Concert all this month is will be donating a portion of their ticket sales to local veteran organization Veterans Welcome Home & Resource Center based out of Little River.

“It is a joy to assist the dedicated military veterans of our area by partnering with the Veterans Welcome Home & Resource Center,” said Chris Beattie, regional general manager at Legends in Concert. “For years, these brave men and women have put their lives on the line fighting for our nation and so many of the freedoms we enjoy today. The entire Legends in Concert staff is grateful to these veterans for the sacrifices they have made and we hope to make a positive impact on the organization committed to addressing their needs.”

The VWHRC provides a variety of services such as, assistance with vehicle and home tax exemption, referrals to area agencies for help with rent or utility bills, job assessment and resume preparation; completing paperwork for acceptance into the VA medical system, assisting with appeals and much more.
