“The first ever Highway to Hope benefit concert will be a fun virtual event bringing our industry together, at a time when we are far apart, to raise support for SCF and our highway heroes with amazing artists that want to give back to this industry. We hope you will join us for a night of music and celebration,” Shannon Currier, director of philanthropy and development at SCF, said in a statement.
SCF is a charity that helps over-the-road and regional truck drivers and their families when an illness or injury has caused them to be out of work.
Individual ticket purchasers in the U.S. will also receive a free CD from the NASTC Grand O Trucking Show, which includes music celebrating the trucking industry. Companies are also invited to sponsor the event or match funds raised.
