Case Construction Equipment to host music festival
The Labor of Love festival kicks off at 3 p.m. Sept. 7 at the Racine Festival Park. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be made to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Also performing at the festival will be local bands, such as Bella Cain and Run Carolina. The Veterans Outreach Center of Wisconsin will be hosting a 50/50 raffle to raise money for local veterans as well. A ceremony honoring veterans for their service and contributions to the American workforce will take place at 3 p.m. followed by a performance by Moore at 6 p.m.
The event is a way CASE officials said it gives back to the community.
"There is a very real skilled labor shortage in America today, from welders and machinists to heavy equipment technicians and operators," Jim Hasler, vice president of North America for CASE Construction Equipment, said. "It's important we help develop that next generation of talent and our veterans may be our greatest resource. 'Labor of Love' is all about making that connection and helping veterans take that next step in their professional lives."
