AZ “Hero-Fest” concert to benefit Arizona chapter of the national non-profit House of Heroes


 
PRLog - March 11, 2014 - PHOENIX -- - - Keller Williams Legacy One, AZ Value Builders Real Estate, Janet Rogers Group, The Marine Corps Detachment League #554, RMBC Records, Old Republic Home Protection and JCG Advertising today announced the First annual “Hero-Fest” concert to benefit the Arizona chapter of the national non-profit House of Heroes. Hero-Fest has been scheduled for April 17th at Gilbert Center for the Performing Arts.

Founded in January 2000, the House of Heroes is a nonprofit organization serving our nation's military and public safety veterans (and their spouses) who are disabled, living on a fixed income, or facing other physical/financial challenges. Volunteers perform minor repairs and make improvements to the homes of veterans and their spouses—at no cost to the veteran— through the generosity of individuals, civic organizations, and corporations.

Hero-Fest will be an annual musical event to raise funds for this organization. The night will also include a ceremony honoring two members of each branch of the armed forces, as well as public responders, police and firefighters that have been extraordinary with their service and reaching out in their community.

“It is sure to be a very entertaining, memorable and emotional event for all of those who attend, and for those that serve and protect.” says Lynette Clemens of Keller Williams Legacy.

Local musician and headlining act Russ Marsh is a recording artist who enjoyed success in the 1970’s and has returned with the release of his album A-M-E-R-I-C-A. Marsh’s patriotic anthem “Stand Up One More Time” is the official House of Heroes song.

A website dedicated to year-round fundraising for House of Heroes is in production and sponsored by JCG Advertising. The site will feature event information, a page for each year’s honorees where site visitors can leave written messages as well an online store featuring exclusive designs on t-shirts, hats, mugs and other apparel items. The online store will be open year-round with 100% of profits going to House of Heroes.

“Our agency is passionate about pro-bono charity projects but this one is especially important to us. There was not a second thought given to lending the service and resources of our agency to this project, not just this year, but on an annual basis. We are very excited to make Hero-Fest a permanent part of our corporate culture.” says James Polinori, CEO and Founder of JCG Advertising.

An initial 21 day fundraising campaign through Tshirt sales can be tracked at: www.tfund.com/azherofest2

1,200 tickets will be available for this event. On-sale information, prices, and a full event line-up will be released as finalized. Tickets can be purchased online at:http://higleyarts.ticketforce.com/eventperformances.asp?e...
