Event in Focus: 5th Annual American Freedom Festival

 

5TH ANNUAL AMERICAN FREEDOM FESTIVAL

 

San Diego, CA (March 31, 2014) — The American Freedom Foundation announces the 5th Anniversary of the American Freedom Festival San Diego concert event. The annual charity event will be held on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 7:30 pm featuring the ultimate classic rock all-star band, World Classic Rockers. The concert, held annually aboard the historic USS MIDWAY MUSEUM, was a sell out last year! As a result, the Museum is moving planes around on the flight deck to accommodate an additional 400 seats for concertgoers.

Beneficiaries

The San Diego Armed Services YMCA enhances the lives of service members and their families in mind, body, and spirit through programs and services that are relevant to the unique challenges of military life. militaryymca.org/. REBOOT WorkshopsTM are designed to assist members of the military in making the social and career transition from years of service by addressing their fears and “re-booting” their skills. The workshop features three weeks of education designed to enhance and build upon their training, experience and skills to prepare them for life after the military. www.nvtsi.org. The Wounded Warrior Support Network features businesses and individuals joining together in a campaign to pay tribute to our Wounded Warriors by providing active support from treatment to transition. The support will include providing access to entertainment and sporting events, events for Wounded Warriors and their families to spend quality time together and a network of resources to help aid our Wounded Warriors in finding jobs. www.woundedwarriorsupportnetwork.org. The Nice Guys have been a part of San Diego since 1979, helping local families and individuals who, through no fault of their own, have fallen on tough times. Their goal is to get people back on their feet and self-sufficient . . . offering a hand up not a hand out. In April of 2003, a special fund, called the Victory Fund, was begun under the auspices of the Nice Guys organization. This fund has the sole purpose of providing aid and support to wounded Marines, sailors, and their families. www.sdniceguys.com
