Billy Ray Cyrus, Jon Secada, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons at Miami Rocks Our Troops Benefit
|Buy a vet a beer with Billy Ray.|
After all, we're forever indebted to their brave, selfless service, and commitment to our country.
So buy a vet a beer. Or simply thank a service member. Though small, they'll appreciate the gesture.
If you really want to go all out, though, invite a veteran to the Jon Secada-hosted benefit concert, Miami Rocks Our Troops.
With proceeds going to HonorVet.org, an organization helping veterans and their families, Miami Rocks Our Troops is a one-night, multi-act mini-fest at BankUnited Center with scheduled performances by "Achy Breaky Heart" king Billy Ray Cyrus, and ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons -- not to mention Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, José "Feliz Navidad" Feliciano, dance-pop diva Erika Jayne, American Idol alumnus Sammy Arriaga, and others.
"Home to a lot of our Latino veterans, Miami is the perfect place to create an event as diverse as its culture and vibe," HonorVet.org co-founder and CEO Jesse Canella said in a statement. "We are sure we will have a concert worthy of those who have served this nation of all."
Miami Rocks Our Troops. Saturday, September 29. BankUnited Center, 1245 Dauer Dr, Coral Gables. The benefit begins at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $45 to $125 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Call 305-284-8686 or visit bankunitedcenter.com.
