Concert dedicated to Veterans Outreach Center
FARMINGTON, N.Y. –Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack hosted country musician Craig Morgan last night at Remedy, a feature bar and entertainment venue located inside the gaming facility. The performance, which was held in honor of the Veterans Outreach Center (VOC), was co-hosted by local radio station WBEE, part of Entercom Radio Group, and was sponsored by Motovate Performance. Fans from all over Western New York attended the free performance which was opened up by Dave McGrath, a well-known local musician.
 
Morgan, a veteran of the United States Army, has long been a supporter of Veterans outreach programs and often performs at military bases both in the U.S. and overseas.
 
Several lucky fans attended a meet and greet with Morgan before he hit the stage. One meet and greet attendee, Kim Flanagan, stated “I have been a big fan of Craig Morgan's for years. His music was something my mother and I shared together before she passed in October 2010. This month is difficult for my sister and I and it meant a lot we could share this together in her memory.”
 
One of the highlights of the evening was a $3,000 donation made by Motovate to The Veterans Outreach Center. The VOC expressed their gratitude for the much needed funding. "We can never find enough ways to say 'thank you' to all of our veterans and those who support our Center- Craig Morgan, Entercom Radio and Finger Lakes Gaming are giving us a chance to have some fun and celebrate these good folks," said Todd Baxter, Executive Director of Veterans Outreach Center. "What is even better are the generous sponsors like Motovate Performance who made this event possible and are making a donation on top of that to provide for the services we offer more than 1,000 heroes every year.”
