JOE WALSH & VETSAID SELECT 2023 VETERAN NONPROFIT PARTNERS TO BENEFIT FROM SAN DIEGO CONCERT ON NOVEMBER 12, 2023
VetsAid, the seventh annual concert to support veterans and their families hosted by Joe Walsh, multi-GRAMMY Award winner and Kennedy Center Honor recipient, has selected the nonprofit partners that will benefit from this year’s November 12th concert at the NICU Amphitheatre in San Diego, CA. The grants are broken out into larger and smaller community grant recipients and all net proceeds from the concert shall determine the final grant amounts. All grant recipients this year are either based in Southern California or must use their funds on Southern California programming. Founded by Walsh in 2017, the 501C3 VetsAid has disbursed nearly $3,000,000 to veteran-serving nonprofits.
The large grant recipients selected are: Veterans Village of San Diego, Veterans Legal Institute, Foundation for Women Warriors, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation and Creativets.
The community grant recipients selected are: Shelter to Soldier, Vets’ Community Connections, Honor Flight San Diego, Cal-Diego Paralyzed Veterans of America, Fisher House Southern California, HunterSeven Foundation, Zero8Hundred and Navy & Marine Corps PROUD Foundation.
Providing support to organizations that care for the nation’s veterans and military families is deeply personal to Walsh, a Gold Star survivor whose father died while on active duty on Okinawa, Japan when Walsh was 20 months old.
"It's with great pride that we announce our grant recipients for VetsAid 2023," explains Joe Walsh. "VetsAid is a festival that we bring to points across this great country of ours and this year we are honored to spread the love and funds to the veterans community in the vital military community that is San Diego and Southern California. Come celebrate with us this November 12th at the NICU Amphitheatre!"
Walsh and the VetsAid Board reviewed numerous organizations before selecting these 14 veteran focused nonprofits.
VetsAid 2023 will feature an out-of-this-world bill with Jeff Lynne’s ELO performing for the first time in five years, The War on Drugs, The Flaming Lips, Lucius and a grand finale from Walsh and special guest Stephen Stills. The show will take place at 5:00pm on Sunday, November 12, 2023 at the NICU Amphitheatre in San Diego, CA. Tickets are available at www.vetsaid.org.
