COLORADO SPRINGS — Gold Hill Mesa is holding a free concert featuring Dr. Fine Rhythm and Blues Revue from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The concert will benefit Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center.

Resources to help transition from military to civilian

The event will be held on the lawn of Gold Hill Mesa on South Raven Mine Drive, which is located on the southwest side of Colorado Springs.

It is recommended that you bring chairs and blankets to listen to the live music. Food trucks will be at the concert, and drinks will be available at a beverage tent. Pets are welcome.

“This is a fantastic way to celebrate the summer months,” said Bob McLaughlin, retired Army colonel and executive director of Mt. Carmel. “And it will benefit our services as we help those who served our nation.”

Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center provides supportive services, connection to community resources and safe event space for veterans. The nonprofit was founded by Jay Cimino, who passed away earlier this year.
