On Saturday, Nov. 3, at 4pm, The Scottish Rite Theatre, 855 Elm St., will host the first Meals on Wheels of Long Beach and “Rock For Vets” variety show.
The event will be a joint fundraiser, and proceeds will help feed homebound veterans in the Long Beach and Signal Hill area with food from Meals on Wheels and provide funding for The Rock Club’s ‘Rock For Vets’ music therapy program at the VA Hospital in Long Beach.
There will be live music from Motown frontman Ron Preyer, the Long Beach VA’s ‘Rock For Vets’ Music Rehab Band, the City of Long Beach’s own Erma Varnado, Manny Lagod’s Hawaiian Tribute (formerly backing vocalist and bass player for Don Ho) plus some surprises, auction, celebrity impersonator, barbecue, raffle items and prizes.
Tickets are $20 per person and are on sale now. To purchase advance tickets now or to donate for a veteran, visit mowlb.org, find the “Rock For Vets” purchase tickets tab and complete the order form. Those who cannot attend are encouraged to send a veteran in their place, in which case it should be noted whether “I will be attending” or “I would like to send a veteran to the show.”
Seating is open and limited. Tickets purchased online will be held at the door, and confirmations will be sent via email.
