Supporting Holiday 4 Heroes – $2 from every ticket sale will be donated to Holiday 4 Heroes!

Holiday 4 Heroes is a grassroots effort started 10 years ago when local business owners became aware there was a need to fill, to provide cheer and comfort to our active duty military members in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Syria as well. This year close to 1000 boxes of supplies were sent to our heroic men and women serving to protect our freedom.  Every cent and product collected goes directly to providing these packages to our service members.

Every day the brave men and women in our military service are risking their lives for us.  Our government does not provide some of their basic needs.  As nearby bases and commissaries have shut down these items become difficult to acquire.   Each year, starting in September, we search out local soldiers to adopt.  We try to supply their entire camp. Their packages are mailed out the last week of November and are received by our soldiers for a little Christmas appreciation and cheer.  Our community has really come together on this project.  People donate tons of supplies, make their own care packages and donate money for the mailings. Please join us in the effort to support these very brave men and women who protect us.  Remember, freedom is not free.

More than a concert – In addition to great music and a great cause, the Downtown Hoedown will feature great BBQ with other food choices, as well as refreshing beverages from Corona, Jim Beam, and Ole Smoky Moonshine. There will be plenty of vendors on hand for those who want to do a little shopping between shows.

Mark your calendar & come on down to the Downtown Hoedown – February 17, 2018 from 3pm to 11pm at City Marketplace in Downtown Punta Gorda!
