Charlie Daniels to Perform Operation Troop Aid Shows
The Charlie Daniels Band will perform two benefit concerts November 13 at the Golden Eagle Casino in Horton, Kansas. The casino is donating for $1 from every ticket sold to Operation Troop Aid in order to send care packages to deployed U.S. troops.
"I salute Operation Troop Aid and all they do to support our military," Charlie Daniels says.
Since its inception, Operation Troop Aid has sent more than $1 million in care packages and products to U.S. troops oversees with help of numerous singers and entertainment initiatives.
Tickets are available for the 6PM and 8:30PM CT shows for $40 and $50, but those purchased before the day of show will be discounted $5. Purchase your tickets here.
Known for his generous spirit, Charlie is also holding the 2010 Charlie Daniels Band & Friends Concert to benefit for Christmas 4 Kids November 22 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. Montgomery Gentry, Jake Owen and Sawyer Brown are also on the bill. Proceeds from the concert and other Christmas 4 Kids events will provide more than 400 children from 29 different schools a very special holiday shopping spree.
"Christmas 4 Kids holds a special place in my heart," Charlie told The Boot. "In this land of plenty, no child should be sad at Christmas time. Christmas 4 Kids does its part to keep that from happening."
Also on Charlie's itinerary this week, the T.J. Martell Foundation will present the legend with its Lifetime Entertainment Achievement Award at a ceremony in New York October 27.
The Charlie Daniels Band are currently on the road with their next stop November 6 in Thackerville, Okla. Details may be found here.
