A star-studded lineup of veteran and fresh new movie, music and television stars from Hollywood, Las Vegas and Atlantic City will headline a once in a lifetime concert event of music, memories, laughter and love benefitting two charities in West Virginia.
The “Valentines for Veterans Concert” presented by The Denver Foundation and the Southeast WV chapter of the American Red Cross will be held Thursday, February 14, 2019, at 7 p.m. at the Chuck Mathena Center in Princeton WV.
The star-studded lineup, appearing together on one stage for the first time ever, includes:
- West Virginia’s own “America’s Got Talent” winner season six Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. and his all-star band
- Maiya Sykes, the soul-singing sensation from NBC TV’s “The Voice” and vocalist for PostModern Jukebox
- Hollywood heartthrob, Las Vegas and Atlantic City headliner Dave Damiani
- Von Lewis, actor and singer from the Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated movie “Green Book”
- Female singing sensation Abbey Clark’s timeless tribute to Patsy Cline
As a special added treat, the Valentine for Veterans event will be hosted by everyone’s favorite Valentine Dawn Wells, best known for her starring role as Mary Ann on the TV classic “Gilligan’s Island” and a longtime supporter of The Denver Foundation.
To make the evening extra special, all Valentines for Veterans event attendees will have the opportunity to meet the show’s stars in person and have photos made with them after the show.
A limit number of Valentines dinner and show packages and VIP ticket packages are available.
Veterans and their families who attend will receive (while supplies last):
- Seating in a special “Just for Vets” section
- A copy of Bob Denver’s book “Gilligan, Maynard and Me” signed by “Mrs. Gilligan” Dreama Denver
- Landau Eugene Murphy’s “Come Home To West Virginia” CD
- A special pre-show opportunity to meet the show stars backstage
A portion of the proceeds from the Valentines for Veterans event will support The Denver Foundation and the Southeast WV Chapter of American Red Cross. Both organizations are highly-regarded for their efforts to support veterans.
Dreama Denver, president of The Denver Foundation (home of Always Free Honor Flight) and a Red Cross Board Member, said she is delighted to have such an unbelievable array of talent in Mercer County on one stage for one night. “Both the Denver Foundation and the Red Cross do so much work on behalf of our West Virginia veterans,” said Denver, “and to make this night possible in recognition of their service and sacrifice is a privilege for all of us. I hope that lots of people will come out for a great Valentines event to support our wonderful vets.”
