Audience 945449 1920

There is a concert coming to the Essentia Health Sports Center that will be raising money to help our lakes area veterans. Doug Allen Nash is bringing his “Two American Icons” show to Brainerd on May 2nd.

This is a second annual event that raised over $9000 last years. The goal this year was to double that amount. They are directing the money this year to two fantastic organizations.

Folds of Honor – Scholarship program providing educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fall and disabled service members.

Vigilant Gaurdians Veterans MC of Minnesota – Veterans supporting fellow veterans and their families within our communities.

The evening includes dinner, entertainment and a silent and live auction. There will be special time honoring our active duty service members, veterans, fallen soldiers and their families. 

Doug Allen Nash is most noted in the Brainerd Lakes Area for his concert events in the summer on the deck at Breezy Point. He is bringing the show to Brainerd and the Essentia Health Sports Center on May 2nd along with 11 amazing musicians in a tribute to Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond. Doug traveled with the USO tour and love performing for the armed forces.
