08.26.2016 - This fall, before his concert at the Stranahan on Oct. 21, Mellencamp will return to Tent City, this time as the Honorary Mayor and Grand Marshal to kick off Tent City and the Veterans Matter Walk to End Veteran Homelessness.

“John has made it a lifelong mission to use his celebrity not just to draw attention, but to provide his time, capacity and resources to countless organizations which care for others, such as Farm Aid. The goal here in Toledo is to bring the national spotlight to Toledo’s compassion and our urgent mission to house 2,000 more veterans nationwide this year,” Leslie said.

To help the group raise additional funds, Mellencamp will also invite the highest Veterans Matter Walk fundraiser and a guest to his show that evening with a meet-and-greet immediately following. The singer is donating an additional ticket package to support the Oct. 19 fundraiser hosted by his long-time tour manager and 1Matters board member Harry Sandler. Sandler will be presenting an October-long show of his photography, “Images of a Photographic Journey,” at the Toledo School for the Arts Porter Gallery.
