Salute the Troops, along with other local nonprofits and small businesses, will host Rock for Hope, a free, family concert at Hamilton Park in Fond du Lac, Wis. on Saturday, July 1 from 11am – 3pm.

Rock for Hope will feature artists who have veterans in the band, as well as one additional group who is donating their services to this event. Guests will enjoy the sounds by Courier, Warrior Songs, Zakk Daniel, the J Ryan Trio, Vets on Frets, and Guilty. Additionally, this free concert is a sober (alcohol-free), family event that will have resource, food vendors, a bounce house, as well as a petting zoo.

 “There is nothing like this right now in Fond du Lac.” said Salute the Troop’s board of directors president, Dan Tinsley, “we hope to educate and make our community aware of the various organizations located in their communities that are ready and willing to help (veterans). We also hope to reduce stigmas associated with all the challenges our community faces and remind our neighbors that we are stronger together.”
