4th Annual Songs4Soldiers Gears Up for Another Successful Year


Coming up on September 10, Columbia will again be hosting the Songs4Soldiers Benefit Concert after much anticipation.  For those of you unfamiliar with the event, Songs4Soldiers is a benefit concert founded by Dustin Row (brother of our very own Sam Row!), an Iraq War veteran himself, with a mission of helping local combat veterans.  Since it was founded, the organization has dispersed $128,000 and helped 76 local veterans in need!  Rather than handing out cash, the organization works hard to ensure that the money donated goes directly to the needs of veterans, and it operates under complete transparency, meaning that those who donate can watch to see exactly how their donations helped those who have served our country.  




The Linda Frierdich Real Estate Group is an avid supporter of Songs4Soldiers.  For the 2016 year, we donated the use of our billboard, so that the organization could make more people aware of the event through advertising.  We are also immensely proud of the money we raised for S4S in February, through our "Lock Box Linda" event.  Our Team tended bar at three local establishments, donating all tips to S4S.  With much gratitude to Tiny's, Who Dat's, and Merz on Main for allowing us to get behind their bars, as well as to the community for coming out to support this wonderful organization, we are proud to say that we were able to write a check to Songs4Soldiers for $4,000!


Songs4Soldiers is an event for everyone!  The event is family-friendly, featuring a "Kids Zone," complete with bounce houses, balloons, and interactive projects.  Since Songs4Soldiers features food and drink vendors from local bars and restaurants, your family can attend and feel good about supporting local businesses while you help local veterans.  It truly is a wonderful organization and an exciting event!  To learn more, you can visit songs4soldiersstl.org, or you can attend and see it for yourself!
