Tampa’s Yuengling Center will play host to the event on November 20; on November 21, the festivities move to the Hertz Arena in Estero; then, Orlando’s Amway Center shall host the final night of concerts.
What the concerts provide
Across the nights of concerts, John Fogerty will headline all three concerts, while other artists join or swap out with with one another. They include: Lauren Alaina, Cheap Trick, and Foreigner, with special guest Casey Bishop.
According to The Charity Pro’s, “The fundraiser concert events will help provide Educational Scholarships and grant a ‘Megan’s Wish’ to the children of our fallen Heroes.” The organization, which focuses heavily on children’s causes, added, “Join us for one of these amazing community events to honor our Heroes. Every day, we hear about the tragic stories of the front-line health care workers and first responders that lost their life to Covid-19 while working, protecting and fighting for each on of us. These true Heroes have left behind families and children devasted by their loss. Sadly, many have already been forgotten, but we are committed to helping these children in their healing and educational challenges.”
