Nonprofit needs help staying open
A place where veterans come together to support each other needs your help to keep its doors open. You can do this while enjoying an evening of music with your friends and family.
Like many organizations during the pandemic, the American Legion Post 94 in Cadillac struggled. They stay afloat only because of the support of members and the dinners they serve on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings which are open to the public.
Due to the restrictions associated with the pandemic, they have not been able to collect the amount of money it normally takes to operate. That’s why, later this month, they’ll be hosting a benefit concert featuring musical talent provided by two Michigan-based bands, Myron Elkins and Brother Elsey. The concert is made possible by several generous local sponsors.
âWithout this concert, we would close our doors, for sure. There is no way. We don’t have the money to pay the bills that we have right now. So for us it is an amazing job that someone has, these people would be so kind to spend their time and money on this for us. We just feel very lucky to be able to do it, âsaid Tina Paige of the American Legion Auxiliary.
Tickets are $ 12 and you can buy them at the American Legion station in Cadillac or $ 15 at the door the night of the concert.
Visit the American Legion Post # 94 in Cadillac at 422 N. Mitchell Street or call Tina Paige at 231-884-7796 to learn more about tickets or to donate.
