The charitable purpose of HonorVet.org is to assist American veterans returning from years of wars by helping them to reestablish themselves in civilian life.
“As we move forward with our mission, we are thrilled to come to Miami,” said Jesse Canella, CEO and co-founder of HonorVet.org. “Home to a lot of our Latino veterans, Miami is the perfect place to create an event as diverse as its culture and vibe. We are sure we will have a concert worthy of those who have served this nation of all.”
