Fifteen percent of the net ticket revenues will go to the VFW Post for the renovation of their building, which is in need of much repair.

The benefit will also feature performances by Zara Philips, Tommy & Abby Anton, Sister Isis & Carol Barbieri's "Circle of Songwriters" and include a silent art auction, jewelry table by Jennie Woods, and merchandise from the artists.  Light food will be available.
