Joyland Country Music Night Club is supporting the families of local deployed military troops serving in the Middle East this holiday season by teaming up with Manasota Operation Troop Support, (MOTS).
The band Parmalee will perform at Joyland Nov. 30 with all of the proceeds going to make this an extra special Christmas for local military spouses and their children. The Bradenton Country Music Night Club was inspired to make the concert event a fundraiser by one of their Facebook page members posting about spouses who are left behind to make Christmas memories alone.
Club owner Rick Lambert decided that Joyland and all of their customers could do something special to show support to our local troops’ families. They are partnering with Manasota Operation Troop Support to make sure that the help happens for these families and that the help is local.
Manasota Operation Troop Support has a mission of serving local troops and their families during their deployment to the Middle East so their partnership seemed like a natural fit. Together they will work to fill as many military family wishes as possible this year. Last year MOTS served over 50 active military families in our area with meals and gifts.
Major Charles M. responded to the outpouring of support from MOTS in 2012 with a thank-you email that read, "I would like to thank Linda (MOTS) for taking my children under her wing and providing such lavish presents to my children for Christmas. No words that I have, or can realize at this moment come even close to the warmth I feel in my heart knowing that people like you exist in the society that I have taken the oath to defend. You made Kara, Gabriel, Elizabeth and me feel the holiday spirit."
Parmalee is one of country musics’ most talked about new bands. They are known for incredible live performances. They have been named one of the two bands to watch in 2013 and their current hit ‘Musta Had A Good Time’ is climbing the charts right now.
