A Country Concert in Augusta this Saturday will benefit Maine Homeless Veterans and the Maine Children's Home For Little Wanderers.

Once again, local musicians will gather at the Augusta Civic Center in the name of helping homeless veterans get settled into new housing. So many things that we take for granted need to be provided for these folks who are moving into an apartment after living in shelters. They don't have basic essentials like linens, cooking utensils, or even toilet paper! Fundraisers like this one, and a similar concert held in September, help to purchase these essentials so veterans can start off with what they need. After all they've sacrificed for our country, it's the least we can do to help them have a more comfortable future.

The concert gets started at 7:00 Saturday night, and will feature the music of Deb Morin, The Overlocks, Debbie Myers, Malinda Liberty, Peter Allen, Allison Ames, Chris Fyfe, and Denny Breau, with a special appearance by Dance Unlimited! The Civic Center will be all decorated for Christmas, and there will be an amazing light show from Robo Lighting. Sounds like fun!

Tickets are $20 for General Admission and $35 for Reserved Floor Seating and are available through Ticketmaster or you can buy them at the door, provided they don't sell out. Proceeds from the event will help purchase those re-homing supplies for Maine homeless veterans.

In addition, folks are encouraged to bring an unwrapped gift for a child between the ages of 3 and 11, which will be given to the Maine Home For Little Wanderers, to be used for its Christmas program. 7,000 children receive gifts from the program out of the Waterville facility, so any help is appreciated!
