Case Construction Equipment will co-sponsor the “Rockin’ for the Troops” concert to be held July 19 at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois. The event is being held by Operation Support Our Troops-Illinois (OSOTIL), and will benefit U.S. troops that are deployed overseas.
For this year’s concert, OSOTIL will again partner with “CSI: New York” actor Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band. Special appearances from American English and Dick Biondi are also planned.
Money raised from past events has helped bring a Fisher House to Illinois, benefited the Poly Trauma Unit at the Hines VA Hospital and allowed care packages to be shipped to overseas troops.
Cantigny Park will open at noon and live entertainment begins at 4 p.m. Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band will go onstage at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available by calling (800) 594-8499 or at www.osotil.org/rockin2008.html.
