After working with AHERO and their amazing program during the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival this past October, it was a no brainer to see the opportunities we could provide for our Veterans by working together. It filled our heart to see that we were striving toward the same goal of bringing enjoyment to others.
The PBSF does it by celebrating the creators of music that have the ability to express emotion and healing through song. AHERO provides outdoor adventure and fellowship to Veterans who have suffered greatly on behalf of all Americans.
This union led us to an amazing weekend event called Operation Song, “A Musical Salute to our Veterans. ” There will be music, workshops, a 5K run, a meet and greet with special guest speakers. It will be a jammed packed weekend that you won’t want to miss.
The recipients of the proceeds from this event will be presented to AHERO (America’s Heroes Enjoying Recreation Outdoors), whose goal is to heal the physical and psychological wounds of war and military service. And to Operation Song, a well know organization that pairs professional songwriters with Veterans, active military and their families to help them tell their stories through song and to also heal the psychological wounds of war. The goals are the same … to support our Veterans and give them back the opportunities they deserve.
We are delighted to announce the host venues for the weekend. Pensacola Beach Community Church will be the host for Friday with the grand finale to be held at the Elks Lodge #497 on Saturday. Together we all are striving to bring awareness to our disabled Veterans and provide the help that is needed for them to enjoy a better life.
