Part of first-ever Freedom & Dignity Festival coming Aug. 10

Time is slipping away to purchase tickets to the Freedom & Dignity Festival, scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 10 beginning at 3 p.m. at the Schaumburg Boomers Baseball Stadium in Schaumburg. This is the inaugural country music festival to support Café Liberty and our armed forces veterans and their families seeking training and self-sufficiency.
The headliner for the evening, beginning at 9 p.m., is country music star performer Toby Keith.
“We were delighted to have Toby Keith agree to perform a benefit concert for Café Liberty,” said Dan Gibbons, founder of Café Liberty and the Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot (DGTT) Foundation. “He has a big heart for veterans, he has the utmost respect for our armed forces and was happy for the opportunity to help out Liberty Café, once he learned that our mission is to help veterans help themselves, not just give them a handout.”
The mission at Café Liberty is based on the old saying, “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day; teach how to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.”
“We are offering veterans an opportunity to learn something in order to be self-sufficient, get a job, start a business, whatever they’d like to do,” Gibbons said. “It’s a free training opportunity for veterans and their families, not just a free handout, which does nothing for anyone’s feeling of dignity and self-respect.”
Impressed with the efforts of Café Liberty, Toby Keith was honored by the request and willingly offered to perform the benefit concert.
