Warrior Jam Update of Activities! Warrior Jam 2014-Operation Outreach will be held on Oct. 5th at The Rock Shop. This is the third year for this event. This year Fayetteville Mayor Nat Robertson has proclaimed this day Patriot Outreach Day (our parent non-profit). We have an all day line-up of music for a free concert. We have two DJ’s, with one doing karaoke. Vendors will be inside and outside of the venue. We will have for- profit and non-profit vendors, food, raffles, and more. Vendors will sell/present their service from 11am-4pm. The Roller Derby girls will be on hand to sign autographs and have volunteered their time to sell raffle tickets. We will also have free door prizes. At 4pm there will be a patriotic ceremony where the Mayor will hand out an award to one member of each branch of the service. County Commissioner Evans will emcee the ceremony. He is a disabled veteran himself. Rolling Thunder and The Gold Star Mothers will also be part of the ceremony. At 6pm the party will continue until close. There is truly something for everyone at this event. The music line-up contains country, rock, funk, and spoken word. The local artists have been very generous with their time. We also have an up and coming artist and her full band from Nashville performing. Her CD was just released. There will be a two page article in September about Warrior Jam in ARRAY magazine, a local variety publication. One of the local radio stations will be broadcasting live from the event and will advertise the event a full week prior. We have a Street Team that is going out to other local events to pass out flyers and event tickets which qualifies people for the free door prizes. 1000 tickets have already been distributed. Social media has played a large part in getting the word out as well. We are NOT a paid promotion team. We are all volunteering our time for this important cause. This year’s director is a veteran as well. Patriot Outreach addresses issues that soldiers, veterans, battlefield contractors, first responders and family members have with PTSD and coping with stress. 22 veterans and one active duty service member commits suicide every day. These are staggering statistics.
I will be performing from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Track owner Doug Stringer, a Mcleansboro, Ill. resident and former owner of Akins Motorsports, decided to run this event after the tragic passing of his long-time friend one year ago. Leffler left behind a son, Charlie Dean. “I am proud to host the second annual Jason Leffler Memorial race,” says Stringer. “This race is my way to honor Jason who was a great competitor, a great friend and an amazing father to Charlie Dean. As we continue to celebrate Jason’s life, it’s important that we keep Charlie Dean in our thoughts and do everything we can to ensure he grows up knowing how truly remarkable his father was and how much he was respected as both a driver and a friend. Making sure Charlie Dean has everything in life Jason would have wanted him to have is a priority for many of us.” The Tuesday night event will be preceded by a dinner and silent auction on Monday night at 7PM at Stringer’s home residence in McLeansboro. Entertainment will be provided by Country Music Independent Entertainer of the Year award winner Ryan Daniel. All proceeds and donations will go to the Charlie Dean Leffler Discretionary Fund.

"Ryan Daniel and Natalie Nicole Green got the event rolling and warmed up the audience for a long day of music ahead, attendees took part in raffles and browsed through vendor tents filled with wares." “I think it was awesome; we didn’t know what to expect really,” said Judith Martin, a local Orlando resident who knows Bulford personally. “I heard one announcement on the radio about the show, and we heard all the artists that were coming. ... all the other acts were really outstanding.”
