Concert for the Troops
The Village and its concert series sponsors will host the Annual Concert for the Troops on Thursday, July 18th at the Ross Ferraro Town Center. 7th Heaven, a returning Carol Stream favorite, will headline this annual charity concert to benefit Operation Support Our Troops America whose mission it is to provide care and comfort to enlisted military and their families. 7th Heaven has partnered with the Village the last several years to host this annual charity concert for our beloved troops. A 7th Heaven show is more than a concert but an experience that encourages the audience to sing along with familiar choruses. Formed in 1985, 7th Heaven performs over 250 shows a year with a playlist that includes their radio hits ‘Better This Way’ and ‘Sing’ as well as their signature '30 Songs in 30 Minutes' medley.
Food concession service will begin at 6:00 pm from the Visitor’s Center and feature entrees from Charkies, frozen custard treats from Culver’s and beer and alcohol coolers from the Carol Stream Rotary Club. In addition, the Village will host a Split-the-Pot raffle with all proceeds to benefit Operation Support Our Troops America. Please note that outside alcohol is prohibited at all Village concerts and that the music venue that includes the Gazebo Stage and the adjacent amphitheater are smoke free. Overflow parking will be at 205 E Lies Rd. Carol Stream.
