America Salutes You has a mission to honor and raise awareness for our veterans, service members and their loved ones. On November 12, 2016 a concert was held at Rosemont Theater, which featured a number of performers interested to the cause. The concert was recorded and developed into a special that is going to broadcasted over Thanksgiving day and weekend.
Text and online fundraising take place during the concert and its multi-platform broadcast for the America Salutes You Campaign, a McCormick Foundation Fund. All fundraising costs are covered by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, which is committed to fostering communities of educated, informed and engaged citizens. This ensures 100 percent of funds raised will be granted to nonprofit organizations helping veterans, service members and their families across the country.
All production costs of America Salutes You have been paid for by for by ticket sales, sponsorships and America Salutes You, LLC. No donations will be used for concert expenses.
