Heroes Concert on October 30th, 2009

Livonia, Michigan (PressExposure) October 15, 2009 -- The Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America, Brain Injury Association of Michigan Veterans Program, Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund, and Operation Never Forgotten, wish to invite you to Laurel Manor, Livonia and the ”Wounded Warrior Concert” on October 30th, 2009 from 6:00 pm - Midnight. This joint event is to support these Michigan Veterans programs and to tell the troops “Thank you” for their service and sacrifice.

About the Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America (MPVA) has served Michigan for 45 years, "making a difference" in the lives of veterans, their families, and the public. They are a leadership organization reaching out on behalf of their members (veterans with spinal cord injury or disorders), associate members, and all people with disabilities to provide the highest possible quality of life in Michigan.

About the Brain Injury Association of Michigan Veterans Program Since 1981 the Brain Injury Association of Michigan’s (BIAMI) mission has been “to enhance the lives of those affected by brain injury through education, advocacy, research, and local support groups; and to reduce the incidence of brain injury through prevention.” Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), “The Signature Wound” of the War on Terror, pressed BIAMI to create a special program specifically to help with veteran’s TBI issues in 2007 and by 2008, it had earned the Brain Injury Association of America’s “Award of Excellence” for Programs and Services.

About Operation Never Forgotten Operation Never Forgotten (ONF) is a national non-profit communications service that connects our military and civilian worlds through non-partisan public service announcements (PSAs). Outdoor advertising has been ONF’s greatest messengers. Our programs ask Americans to appreciate our deployed troops for their commitment to us. They help show Gold Star Families that their loved ones are NEVER forgotten and recognize wounded warriors for their courage at home. Military families need to know that America is grateful for their mission supporting those who protect us.

About The Magic Bus Band The Magic Bus Band’s “Hippifest” Tour is a unique tribute by one of Michigan’s truly dynamite bands that brings back to life that era of Peace, Love and Flower Children that dominated the late 60’s and early 70’s. While the music is the same, the concert’s culture is different from those of the Vietnam era. This time around we wish to salute our Veterans for their service and sacrifice, unlike the way the Vietnam Vets were treated. Those wishing to make a donation, please make checks out to “BIAMI Vets Program”. Funds will be distributed between the organizations. A tax deductible receipt will be provided, thank you.
