The purchase of a ticket to see the Charlie Daniels Band in concert on May 2, 7 p.m. at Engel Stadium will benefit the Veterans Entrepreneurship Program (VEP) offered at UTC.
The American Dream Concert tickets are on sale now at more than 50 Kangaroo locations. Cost is $20 per ticket, general admission. A list for locations where tickets can be purchased is located here.
In 2012, the inaugural VEP was launched at UTC in partnership with the Oklahoma State University School of Entrepreneurship. The program helped 14 veteran participants launch new careers. More veterans are enrolled in the 2013 program, which is provided for free for those who qualify.
“The Veterans Entrepreneurship Program (VEP) provides a rigorous entrepreneurial learning and development opportunity for service disabled veterans and those who distinguished themselves in their military service. It is designed for veterans who are interested in starting a venture as a means to financial independence or have an existing business that they would like to grow profitably. UTC College of Business is proud to partner with Oklahoma State faculty to bring the VEP to Chattanooga, TN in order to serve disabled veterans in our southern region.”
