Veterans positioned in Ohio can be getting some support quickly, and so they have Joe Walsh to thank. On Wednesday (Jan. 18), the singer-songwriter introduced that the proceeds from his sold-out November 2022 VetsAid benefit concert — named after his non-profit — could be going to assist those that served.
“Right now I’m thrilled to announce $650,000 disbursed in grants to our Ohio charity companions after VetsAid 2022,” Walsh shared by way of Instagram, together with pictures breaking down the distribution of funds from the live performance’s earnings.
In response to a press launch, VetsAid divided the proceeds from the live performance occasion — which featured performances from Walsh and the James Gang, and particular appearances from Dave Grohl, 9 Inch Nails, The Black Keys, The Breeders and the OSU Marching Band — to institutions chosen by Walsh and the group’s board, with counsel from the Mixed Arms Institute.
Save a Warrior, QL+ Basis, Rent Heroes USA, Paralyzed Veterans of America’s Buckeye Chapter, Semper Fi & America’s Fund, Travis Manion Basis and the Nationwide Veterans Memorial & Museum every acquired $75,000. Mixed Arms acquired $58,000, whereas Canine Companions and VFW Publish 9857 acquired $15,000 and $12,000, respectively. Stockhands Horses for Therapeutic, Resurrecting Lives Basis, Again the Heroes Rumble, Activity Pressure 20, Pegasus Farm and Rickenbacker Navy Households received $5,000 every.
VetsAid is scheduled to return this 12 months, and can be going down in San Diego.
“VetsAid is a touring circus that we purpose to share with as many army communities throughout the nation as potential,” Walsh mentioned in a press launch. “So it’s with nice pleasure that I can announce VetsAid 2023 is coming to ‘America’s Most interesting Metropolis’ this Nov. 12!”
