Silver Spring, Maryland. October 7, 2008. The Silver Spring Town Center, Inc. is pleased to announce its "Tribute to America's Veterans" benefit concert to be held on Sunday, November 9, 2008 at the Round House Theatre in downtown Silver Spring.
The evening of entertainment will feature performances by Michel Baytop, acoustic blues guitar, and the internationally known jazz group, the Marcus Johnson Project.
Among the special guests at the benefit concert will be soldiers from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett, a Vietnam veteran.
The event will benefit Operation Second Chance, a local non-profit organization which provides recreational opportunities for wounded American soldiers. http://www.operationsecondchance.org/ The organization's goal is to provide support for the Soldiers and Marines while they are at WRAMC and then to further assist them when they transition either back to duty or back to civilian life.
