By now you’ve probably heard the exciting news about the Lowe’s USO Family Fund, which support family programming at the USO. On Thursday, NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson hosted a special concert at the Fillmore in Charlotte, NC, with musical performance by Darius Rucker…all to support the Fund!
“It means a lot to all of us and I think it’s really big for the city to have the race here in town,” Johnson told WCNC.com in Charlotte. “Drivers and almost everyone knows this is a big opportunity to be home and wine and dine some folks to show our appreciation to the fans.” You can check out footage of the night’s events in a short clip below.
It was a great night for our Troops and the best part (besides supporting the USO, of course!) is that YOU can view the concert on the SPEED Channel at 7 p.m. on May 29, 2010 - just one week from tonight. In the meantime, show your support for the Lowe’s USO Family Fund by visiting www.uso.org/lowes, by texting USO to 50555 for a $5 donation, or by calling 1-800-876-7469 and using giving codes “Lowe’s,” “Jimmie Johnson,” or “Racing.” Thanks for your support!
