16 / September / 2017
PRESS RELEASE - For Immediate release
Wilmington, N.C., to host 2017 World Developmental Football League’s East Coast Championship Game & Concert
The 2017 WDFL-East Coast Championship Game is more than just great football and a Nashville talent concert: it is an event that directly benefits Stop Soldier Suicide. Each day, an average of 22 veterans takes their own lives. Proceeds from ticket sales will promote the effort of this non-profit in their work helping veterans and their families to deal with post-tour effects.
The all-ages event will take place at Legion Stadium on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Veterans and motorcycle enthusiasts are encouraged to attend when the gates open at 8 a.m. for a 500-600 motorcycle showcase. This is free to the public.
The concert features two Nashville recording artists who have written songs to honor the families of our armed forces. “The X-Factor”s David Kroll, (“Little Soldiers”) and unBRAKEable Duo’s, (“Black Rain”) written and performed by Blake Gray with husband Brian Nutter, (Keith Urban’s former lead guitar player) along with Whiskey Diablo from Charleston, SC, are putting on an incredible concert for supporters of Stop Soldier Suicide.
The winning football team moves on to the WDFL National Championship later this year. Frank Shourds, Executive Vice President of the WDFL, is excited about the WDFL’s purpose, stating “We are preparing players for the future of their dreams. Mental preparedness is one of the key elements in the development of future professional football players. We teach them things they never learned in college so they can move on to become better people and extraordinary players.”
Attendance is expected to reach 5,000 or more fans. Vendor space is still available. For more information, please VIPvendor@PromotionalAngles.com
