“This is Golden Eagle Casino’s second year as a sponsor for TROOP AID, and I am extremely thrilled that they have chosen the 2010 TROOP AID Patriot Award winner Charlie Daniels to perform this year,” said TROOP AID Founder and CEO Mark Woods. “Even better, Charlie and the CDB will perform two shows on Nov. 13 in support of our mission.”
Added Daniels, “I salute OPERATION TROOP AID and all they do to support our military.”
The legendary performer’s two shows are at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Reserved seat tickets are available for $40 and $50.
