About VNEW

Many U.S. veterans deal with emotional and coping issues - PTSD, alcohol and drug abuse, family stress, work issues, homelessness and more. Veterans sometimes find it difficult to communicate what they are feeling. They feel their voices are not heard, that people don’t understand what they go through.

Film producer Dennis Passaggio, community activist Kandi Reyes and the late film director, Ted Post, all experienced these issues within their families. Coming from entertainment and community engagement backgrounds, they formed the Veterans National Entertainment Workshop (VNEW), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, to help veterans deal with these issues through music, performance and song.

Inaugural Event

Saturday, November 9, 2019
The Veterans National Entertainment Workshop’s inaugural event will be a concert featuring U.S. veterans performing their original songs and popular standards on Saturday afternoon, November 9, 2019 at the historic Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga Canyon, California.

Free tickets will be offered to veterans and their families. We look forward to a rousing concert of rock, country western, bluegrass and pop songs honoring and celebrating veterans on Veterans Day weekend.

Stay tuned to the VNEW website, Facebook page and Twitter feed for announcements of tickets.
