About Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band
“Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band” concerts are an integral part of the success of Building for America’s Bravest™. Not only do the concerts provide an opportunity to raise funding for the construction of each Smart Home, but more importantly, in support of each wounded warrior, the concerts serve as a vehicle to Entertain, Educate, Inspire, Strengthen and Build Communities; which is at the core of the Gary Sinise Foundation’s mission. Creating public awareness for each wounded warrior and their family allows for long-term, sustainable support.
Proceeds Will Benefit
Building for America’s Bravest™. All soldiers encounter difficulty returning to their lives as civilians, but multiple amputees face the incredible challenge of this adjustment without their limbs. Together with Tunnel to Towers Foundation, we’re helping to construct customized smarthomes for America’s most severely injured veterans.
