Local entertainers John and Lu Carpino will perform an acoustic benefit concert for Payson Supply Line at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Fireside Espresso in Payson.
"All of us here in Payson should be so proud of Butch Klein, Lud Kaftan and the Payson Supply Line for the work that are doing," John Carpino said. "Regardless of your political stance, the brave men and women serving overseas need to know that they thought of often and are appreciated for the sacrifices that they, and their families, are making. Payson Supply Line provides us a tangible, down-to-earth way to support our troops."
Proceeds from CD sales, as well as donations made that evening, will go to help fund the efforts of Payson Supply Line, an organization dedicated to supporting our troops overseas.
Since January 2005, Payson Supply Line sent boxes with personal comfort items not available by government issue.
The items lift morale and let the soldiers know that people back home are thinking about them.
Payson Supply Line can be reached at (928) 474-6981.
Fireside Espresso is located at 614 North Beeline Highway, next to Circle K North.
