The Caruso Club in Sudbury will be hosting a benefit concert in support of Wounded Warriors on Saturday, April 13.Performing at this event are the talents of Shania Twin (Donna Huber) and Keep The Faith (Bon Jovi Tribute). Both are incredible tribute artists who are ranked top in their field, said a press release. Wounded Warriors of Canada ambassador, Chris Earl of Singing Soldiers, will also perform.
Wounded Warriors provides service dogs for veterans and first responders who suffer PTSD. As you may know, the benefits provided by receiving the support of a service dog or immeasurable to both the recipient and their families.
Huber/Shania Twin will be performing her last Sudbury concert after 25 years on the road. She is excited about giving back. Both bands want to help families in need.
"Such an amazing organization, please join us in supporting those who dedicate their lives to serve and protect us, our veterans and first responders," said Huber, in the press release.
"In conjunction with our benefit concert we have started a Go Fund Me page with a goal $15,000. Any amount will help and please share! Let's reach this goal and match a Service Dog with a Hero!"
As of yet, these benefits are not officially recognized by the federal government and as such, there is no funding available to bring these animals to the recipients. All funding is provided through donation and efforts like this benefit event.
All proceeds will go directly to families in need.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show runs from 8 - 11:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.
