Please note that the $63 million rehabilitation of the westbound Interstate 70 Missouri River Bridge (Blanchette Bridge) will keep the westbound bridge closed from November 2012 until Fall 2013. Motorists should consider Route 370 as an alternate. Route 370 connects from I-270 in St. Louis County to I-70 in St Peters in St Charles County. Route 364 (The Page Avenue Extension) is also a viable alternative for accessing The Family Arena. For the latest details on the project please click here.
Please note change in showtime. This event now starts at 8pm with doors opening at 7pm.
On Friday, September 28th, Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band will perform live in concert at the St. Charles Family Arena to benefit the U.S. Veterans Art Program and the H.E.R.O.E.S. Care program of Operation Homefront Missouri.
“Supporting our Military Service Members and Veterans is the right thing to do as citizens and we should each take the responsibility to do so”, said Kimo Williams, Vietnam Veteran, founder of the USVAP, and co-founder of the Lt. Dan Band, “Art (music, photography poetry, writing, painting, etc.) can be a viable mechanism for connecting with and understanding those service members and veterans who seek to express their service experiences.”
“Now more than ever, our returning service members and their families need coordinated support as they return to the communities where they live”, said Dave Woolley, Operation Homefront Missouri Board Vice Chairman and Program Coordinator for the St. Louis Regional Alliance for The Troops (RAFTT), “We are proud to partner with the USVAP and many other organizations in their efforts to serve those who serve.”
“No single organization can do it all”, remarked Jon Jerome, President of Operation Homefront Missouri, “Partnerships such as H.E.R.O.E.S. Care and the RAFTT allow member organizations to coordinate their efforts, enhance responsiveness and efficiency, and apply innovative methods in support of service members and their families.”
Member organizations of the RAFTT will be on-hand to share information about their services.
General admission tickets are $28 ($18* for service members and their immediate families) and can be purchased through MetroTix and at the St. Charles Family Arena box office. Special VIP tickets are also available.
