2018 Concert

The Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, resulting in the mandatory evacuation of the Topanga Canyon area and closure of Topanga Canyon Blvd, unexpectedly forced us to postpone our first concert scheduled for November 10, 2018, leaving 350 veterans and their families whom we were helping in a tough spot.

The concert has been rescheduled for November 9, 2019 with many of the same talented performers at the same venue – the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum.

To all those who were affected by the California fires last year, our hearts go out to you.
