John Fogerty has donated the fee for his scrapped Woodstock 50 performance to pay for a new home for a U.S. Veteran. Last summer, when the doomed festival was on its last legs, Forgery had gone on record stating that he would give his already-paid guarantee to a good cause in the spirit of the original 1969 Woodstock Festival, which Fogerty performed at with Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Variety reported a groundbreaking ceremony is set for Veteran's Day on November 11th in Las Vegas, where the legendary singer/songwriter will dedicate the "Proud Mary - John Fogerty Container Home" at Veterans Village. After the ceremony, Fogerty -- a veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves -- will accompany local Las Vegas vets to a private screening of his new concert film,50 Year Trip: Live At Red Rocks, which airs nationally that night via,Fathom Events.
According to the announcement, "The Veterans Village Container Homes are repurposed ocean shipping containers used to provide affordable housing for market rate buyers, low to moderate income individuals/families, and previously homeless individuals/families."
