THE WILSON VAN RAISES $10K FOR 'HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS'
Wilsons partner with Cowhead's Pitbull Toddler, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Jack Daniels to benefit Bay area wounded warriors with auction and free concert
Jan 5, 2013 -- The Wilson Van, a Tampa Bay area 'supergroup' (dubbed by the Tampa Tribune), rocked a capacity crowd at the Hard Rock Cafe in Tampa.
Blending a mix of Van Halen, Journey, Bon Jovi and Zac Brown tunes with a handful of original songs, The Wilson Van raised nearly $5k in donations at the door and another $5k via their silent and live auction with their free concert.
All proceeds went the 'Hope For The Warriors' , a local non-profit that supports military service members and their families.
