Pints with a Purpose – Veterans Day Benefit
Nov 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Pints with a Purpose – Veterans Day Benefit Concert
Thursday, Nov. 11 from 6-9pm. We’re honoring all Veterans while giving support to one local veteran with our Pints With A Purpose event.
People have been so supportive of our Pints on the Patio events, helping raise funds to support the Center as we cope with the financial repercussions of the pandemic. But this time we’re turning the tables and asking you to help us raise funds for a local Marine veteran who could use some support in his mental health battle.
As a 12-year US Marine Corps veteran, helping meet the needs of others has been at the core of James Carter’s work, both in and out of the military service. As the founder of You Found Music, he provides a platform to promote and support independent artists and bands across all genres of music. His efforts have helped countless musicians launch careers throughout the country and most specifically in our community of Kansas City.
But due to an ongoing struggle, James now needs our help. The KC Irish Center is proud to partner with our local music community in sponsoring this special Pints with a Purpose, a fundraiser in support of James Carter and an effort to bring the battle of mental health issues that our veterans face to the public’s attention. Proceeds from all ticket sales will help fund James’ ongoing treatments for severe depression and anxiety.
Musical performances will include David Luther, Sam Wells, Alisa Jefferson, Nicki White, and Timbers Band. Our wee pub will be open to purchase your favorite Irish beverages. Please join us!
