Rockin 4 Heroes Concert Event
October 15 @ 1:00 PM - 6:00 PMFree
Rockin 4 Heroes is a non-profit organization created to honor Veterans, Gold Star Families, Active Military and First Responders. Bonnie and Michael Quinn started the organization 3 years ago to honor these 4 Hero Groups mainly because when their son PJ died of cancer as a young man 3 years ago, the First Responders were so helpful and kind to the family when their son needed ongoing medical care and transportation.
The event is a fun filled concert featuring Leonid & Friends, a famous cover band for the band Chicago. The event is free and the proceeds will be donated to the 4 Hero Groups listed above.
FYI: Rockin’ 4 Heroes is an all-volunteer free tribute concert to honor our First Responders, Active Military, Veterans and Gold Star families. Join us on Sunday October 15, 2023 at 2:00 pm (gates open at 1:00 pm) in Oro Valley at James D. Kriegh Park, the event will run about 3.5 hours.
