Charlie Daniels and Lipscomb University are partnering to raise funds for veterans education with an all-star line-up of artists at the fifth annual Copperweld Charlie Daniels’ Scholarship for Heroes event set to take place on March 25.
Performers taking the stage during the event will include Daniels, as well as Kellie Pickler, Clint Black, The Grascals, the Navy Band Sea Chanters and the American Hitmen, along with other special guests who will be part of the program.
“It’s an honor to be part of something special like the Charlie Daniels’ Scholarship for Heroes event,” says Black.“As if it weren’t enough that Charlie Daniels asked me to sing—our troops occupy a very special place in our history. We have to do our utmost to make sure the part we play in their history is worthy of their sacrifice and commitment. This event is playing a fantastic role, making higher education a reality for returning veterans. I'm thrilled to be a part of this special evening.”
Daniels launched the event in March 2010 to create a greater awareness of the national Veterans Yellow Ribbon education program and to raise funds for veterans to attend Lipscomb University. Lipscomb’s Yellow Ribbon Enhancement Program offers eligible Post-9/11 GI Bill veterans and their family members an undergraduate degree tuition-free or a graduate degree either tuition-free or at a greatly reduced tuition rate.
The Charlie Daniels' Scholorship for Heroes Event is set for Tuesday, March 25 at 7 p.m. in Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena. Tickets are made available through the generosity of the event sponsors. They are available at all Middle Tennessee Daily’s and Twice Daily’s locations and the Lipscomb University box office. Call 615-966-7075.
