John Fogerty will headline three special benefit concerts in Florida next month, that will raise money for The Charity Pro's, a Fort Myers, Florida-based non-profit established to support and advocate for children's social causes.
The shows, scheduled November 20 in Tampa, November 21 in Estero, and November 23 in Orlando, will raise funds for the organization's "Charity Pro's for Heroes" initiative, which will help provide educational scholarships to children of first responders and healthcare workers who died from complications of the COVID-19 virus.
Proceeds from the events also will go toward granting children of fallen heroes a "Megan's Wish," that is, a special experience that will enrich their lives with love, hope and strength.
Joining Fogerty at the concerts will be three special support acts -- country star Lauren Alaina on November 20, Foreigner on the 21st and Cheap Trick on the 23rd. Recent American Idol finalist Casey Bishop, an Estero native, will perform at all three shows.
Immediate family members of first responders and healthcare workers who passed away from COVID-19 are invited to attend the concerts for free. Those interested in reserving seats can email [email protected].
First responders and healthcare workers will be able to purchase discount tickets for the events through the end of the day today by using the promo code HERO. Visit TheCharityPros.org for more information.
"Every day, we learn of the incredible stories of the children and families of our Heroes nationwide who are dealing with the effects of losing a parent or loved one," says The Charity Pro's founder Megan Maloney. "Bringing these families together to honor their loved ones, their Heroes and ours, is the very least we can do."
