Vets Rock Returns to Mohegan Sun Friday, November 6th

2020-10-08

MADD is also set to host their 12th annual charity event on
October 23rd & 24th

Vets Rock, Mohegan Sun’s annual celebration and career fair dedicated to active duty military, veterans and reserves, returns to the Earth Expo & Convention Center on Friday, November 6th. Kicking off at Noon with extra safety and distancing measures, special services will be provided from over 50 veteran service organizations, including Vets Rock staples like Save-A-Suit and virtual career fair resources hosted by Hiring Our Heroes. Additionally, guests can access a free flu shot clinic administered by Yale New Haven Health. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) also returns to Mohegan Sun to host a silent auction later this month, with a touch-free experience.

Save-A-Suit, an organization who provides professional business attire and other resources to help support the transition from military life to a civilian career, will be at Vets Rock outfitting veterans, active military members and reserves on-site until 6:00pm. Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to participate in a new ship-to-home experience. After an in-person “style appointment” at Vets Rock, Save-A-Suit will curate an outfit and ship it straight to the guest’s home at a later date. Save-A-Suit will also be offering virtual workshop opportunities focused on professional and personal development. Donations are appreciated and will be accepted at the event, as Save-A-Suit has seen a fourfold increase in need due to the pandemic.

Vets Rock guests can also partake in incredible virtual career fair resources hosted by Hiring Our Heroes, an organization dedicated to connecting veterans, active duty military members, reserves and military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities. Hiring Our Heroes will have a booth where guests can receive information about virtual services, including job fairs and workshops. Pre-registration is encouraged to participate in the career fair and required to guarantee participation in Save-A-Suit. Walk-ins will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Veterans, active military members and reserves can enjoy 15% off at Godiva and 10% off at Galina’s the day of the Vets Rock event and on Veterans Day (Wednesday, November 11th). As a thank you to our troops, both past and present, Mohegan Sun regularly offers a military discount at more than 40 shops and dining locations across property to anyone with a non-expired military ID, including active duty, veterans and military dependents. For a list of open locations and amenities, as well as Mohegan Sun’s comprehensive health and safety plan, visit mohegansun.com/updates.

*Please note that this year’s Vets Rock will not feature an opening ceremony or evening concert. The total number of vendors in Earth Expo & Convention Center will also be slightly limited. Booths and breakouts like Save-a-Suit will feature appropriate spacing as well.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) will host their 12th annual charity event via a silent auction on Friday, October 23rd and Saturday, October 24th in The Shops at Mohegan Sun near the Box Office. This year’s touch-free auction experience will allow guests to view items in-person and bid on their favorites online from Noon to 10:00pm on both days. Auction items feature sports memorabilia and include a commemorative plaque containing a photo of professional football player Tom Brady and replicas of his championship rings.  Autographed items will also be offered – including commemorative photos of the late Eddie Van Halen and the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and a Squier Bullet Stratocaster guitar signed by Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine.
