Vets Turn Out, And Rock Out, In Fundraiser For Rock 4 Vets is reader and advertiser supported. Support independent news in LB similar to the way people support NPR and PBS stations. We're not non-profit so it's not tax deductible but $49.95 (less than an annual dollar a week) helps keep us online.

(March 22, 2015) -- Music, a raffle, a silent auction, great food and liquid refreshments brought a room-filling Sunday afternoon crowd to today's (Mar. 22) fundraiser for Rock for Vets. The Rock for Vets band had Tracy's Bar & Grill (Spring St. just east of Bellflower Blvd.) rockin' and couples didn't need coaxing to get on the dance floor.

The Rock 4 Vets' website at says the non-profit group is "dedicated to improving the lives and well being of disabled military Veterans in the greater Long Beach area through music instruction and rehabilitation, one on one mentoring and life skill coaching."

[Rock for Vets text] ...Through music instruction Veterans from the Vietnam War, Desert Storm, Iraq, and Afghanistan who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Spinal Cord and Brain Injury and other emotional and physical traumas find that involvement in the Rock For Vets program reduces stress, improves their quality of life and begins the healing process by engaging with other vets and reaping the rewards of the small successes they experience while learning to perform as part of the band...

...Rock for Vets is about giving back to those who once faithfully served this country and are now in need our support in putting the pieces of their lives back together."

All proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward the upkeep and operaing costs (registration, upkeep, fees) associated with the Toyota Sienna van donated to the group last year from Toyota 100 Cars for Good.
