Fourth Annual Vets Rock On Friday,November 2nd

A day to celebrate, honor and thank our military and veterans

UNCASVILLE, CT (May 14, 2018) –  Join us at the fourth annual Vets Rock event as we celebrate active duty military and veterans with a day of valuable programs and resources on Friday, November 2nd. Some of the special services and activities include Hiring Our Heroes, Save–A–Suit professional attire fitting, over 100 Veteran Service Organizations and workshops – all free! A portion of tickets will also be donated from Sebastian Maniscalco’s concert in Mohegan Sun Arena by Mohegan Sun to support Vets Rock.

This year’s Vets Rock will benefit Fisher House Boston, Save–A–Suit and Project New Hope. A special thanks to WTNH News 8 and iHeart Media for their contributions.

“As we go into our fourth annual Vets Rock, we continue to look for ways to have the most positive impacts and help our regional veterans. That is why this year instead of having one major beneficiary, Vets Rock will aid three very important organizations in their missions: Fisher House Boston, Save–A–Suit and Project New Hope. These three organizations provide broad support and targeted services to reduce the strain of difficult circumstances including the period of transition from the military, which I’ve always believed was our clarion call with Vets Rock,” said Kevin Brown, Chairman, Mohegan Tribal Council.

Opening Ceremony

Vets Rock 2018 will begin with an opening ceremony at 10:00am in The Shops concourse, hosted by Gil Simmons of WTNH-TV. Join us as we salute to veterans and present a check to the beneficiary organizations during the National Anthem, with FDNY Bagpipers and a performance by the USO Show Troupe.

Vets Rock Expo

From 10:00am to 6:00pm, guests are invited to take part in the Vets Rock Expo occurring in the new Earth Expo and Convention Center. This year’s Vets Rock Expo gets underway with special services and activities for veterans and their families such as a career fair presented by Hiring Our Heroes that will feature 100 employers throughout the region, Save–A–Suit professional attire fitting, workshops including Prime Lending which will offer free mortgage consultations, free health screenings and more.
