By now you’ve probably heard the exciting news about the Lowe’s USO Family Fund, which support family programming at the USO.  On Thursday, NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson hosted a special concert at the Fillmore in Charlotte, NC, with musical performance by Darius Rucker…all to support the Fund!

“It means a lot to all of us and I think it’s really big for the city to have the race here in town,” Johnson told WCNC.com in Charlotte. “Drivers and almost everyone knows this is a big opportunity to be home and wine and dine some folks to show our appreciation to the fans.”  You can check out footage of the night’s events in a short clip below.

It was a great night for our Troops and the best part (besides supporting the USO, of course!) is that YOU can view the concert on the SPEED Channel at 7 p.m. on May 29, 2010 – just one week from tonight.  In the meantime, show your support for the Lowe’s USO Family Fund by visiting www.uso.org/lowes, by texting USO to 50555 for a $5 donation, or by calling 1-800-876-7469 and using giving codes “Lowe’s,” “Jimmie Johnson,” or “Racing.”  Thanks for your support!

  1. I am so thankful for people in the spotlight showing support for our Men and Women in Uniform. I love them all. I thank them for their willingness to do what is asked of them by a country that is sometimes less than grateful. I support you.
