The Eagles Guitarist Joe Walsh Raised $250K For Charity, Here’s The Purpose

The Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh shared a post on his official Twitter page announcing that the raised $250K from the last year’s VetsAid live streaming concert is going to be used for minority groups such as LGBTQ+ discharged veterans, Black vet assistance, a Native American reservation veterans center, and a women veterans program.

As many of you remember, VetsAid 2020 featured a spectacular lineup of more than two dozen artists including Jon Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, highlights included acoustic performances from Vince Gill and Metallica’s James Hetfield, and lively Zoom calls with Walsh and friends Ringo Starr and Stevie Van Zandt on December 12, 2020.

Now that it’s the fourth year since it all started back in 2017, all proceeds from VetsAid 2020 will be distributed as grants totaling $250,000 to a variety of veterans services organizations since veterans hold a special place for Joe Walsh since his father, a military flight instructor, was killed when Walsh was just months old.

Recently, Joe Walsh shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing that the amount of money that was raised through VetsAid 2020 online tickets is going to benefit 17 foundations all of which categorized into three sections such as community, mid-size, and large grants.

In addition to supporting big foundations such as Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans, Walsh also decided to use the raised money in order to help minority organizations including LGBTQ+ discharged veterans, Black vet assistance, deported vets, a Native American reservation veterans center, and a women veterans program.

Here is what Walsh said:

“I’m happy to partner with USA Today to announce our VetsAid, 2020 grant recipients! We raised $250,000 with your live stream dollars and here’s where that money is going. Pat yourselves on the back and check out this article!”
