'Soldier On' concert a big success
ALBANY -- The numbers are in, and lat month's "Soldier On Benefit Concert" at the Times Union Center was a big success.
The street festival and concert featured the Charlie Daniel's Band and Marshall Tucker. A portion of the 37,000 in proceeds from the event is being donated to Soldier On, a nonprofit group raising money to build a housing center for homeless veterans.
The proposed development would be part of the Albany County Veteran's Campus at the old Ann Lee Home, which organizers say is vitally needed to serve local vets who have had to leave the area to find shelter.
