OPERATION WARRIOR SHIELD, VETERANS ADVOCATE ANNE AKERS, and RANDIE LEVINE-MILLER present a GALAXY OF STARS to HONOR OUR VETERANS – Sat., November 10th, 3 PM at the Triad Theatre
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than one’s self”. – Joseph Campbell
Beginning in 1938, the Congress declared Veterans Day a national holiday to commemorate the end of
World War I and to honor our Veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and their willingness to
pay the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy the freedoms treasure most.
On this holiday, Producer and “Hostess with the Mostest”, Randie Levine-Miller,
and Veterans Advocate Anne Akers join Operation Warrior Shield and a star-studded
cast of performers pay tribute to those ordinary men and women doing extraordinary things.
Leading the performances will be Tony award winning actor Tony LoBianco, whose video tribute
to Veterans, Just A Common Soldier, has garnered 21 million likes, along with Broadway’s
favorite song and dance man, Lee Roy Reams and vocalist Steven Maglio, who has entertained
greats from the Kennedy family to the “Sopranos” with his tribute to Frank Sinatra.
Special guests also include the popular girls trio, The Janes, who have sung with
Barry Manilow, opened for Jackie Mason and toured the world with the USO. And we proudly
present the internationally acclaimed operatic tenor, James Valenti, winner of the Richard Tucker Award
and the Maria Callas Debut Artist Award. James has performed at the world’s finest opera houses and
at St. Patrick’s Christmas Eve Mass, broadcast live by PBS in 2013.
