Vermonters for Vermonters Benefit Event and Concert 9/7/14 - 9/7/14
RUTLAND, VT – On September 7, Vermonters for Vermonters will be hosting a benefit concert at the Vermont State Fairgrounds Grandstand from 2PM-8PM. There will be live music by Joey Leone, Bow Thayer, Myk Sno, Tony Lee Thomas, Jeremy Graham, Ashley Buchart, as well as many speakers from Governor Peter Schumlin to many inspiring people affected by Vermont’s opiate addiction epidemic. Vermonters for Vermonters is a volunteer effort of citizens committed to raising funds and awareness to help combat the negative effect drugs have had in Vermont. Sad to say that this problem is affecting all too many people, from all walks of life throughout our entire state. We have decided it is time to take action and help and we hope you that you too can help in our efforts to combat this epidemic.
