Jelly Roll? War Hippies? CJ Solar? Brian White? Johnny and Heidi? Kane Brown? Mitchell Tenpenny? Megan Patrick? Mae Estes? What in the world is all this about?
OHT was on the road again travelling to Nashville for the CreatiVets art show and songwriters session. Then on to the 3rd annual golf tournament the next day where OHT and Colosseum Athletics were sponsors at Hole #9. What fun we had!!!
We were with all the artists above and believe me, I had NO clue who Jelly Roll or the War Hippies were, but I know them now. My 10-year-old grandson was with me and he was “annoyed” I didn’t know who Jelly Roll was. Never in a million, I told him. Jelly Roll has over 1 million followers on social media so time for me to “get with it."
If you remember from the last newsetter, I told you both the art and the music programs at CreatiVets offer opportunities for relief and healing for the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country. Using various forms of art to help disabled veterans cope with service-related trauma. Of course, this includes music.
Those few days in Nashville were amazing and gave us another opportunity to experience the impact our partnership with CreatiVets has on our veterans. Nothing like being there in person to experience the magic happen and to see one of OHT’s goals – developing relationships in country music – begin to take shape. Never mind giving me an education of a lifetime. Lol!
Thanks to all who have shown such appreciation for all OHT does. We couldn’t be happier or more proud of the work we do, or the impact we have on the lives of wounded and recovering service members and veterans.
More exciting things in the works here so continue to follow us or make a purchase with a purpose. You won’t want to miss a thing.
Operation Hat Trick Founder and President Dot Sheehan will be presenting OHT’s Excellence in Service Awards at the Collegiate Licensing Company Licensing Seminar in Dallas on May 17. The finalists for the award are The University of Arizona, The University of Oklahoma, UCLA, Clemson University, The University of Montana, The University of Nebraska, Texas A&M University, Michigan State University, Gonzaga University, and Western Michigan University. The finalists were chosen based on their efforts to fully integrate OHT on and off their
campuses through a presence in their bookstores and other retail outlets; promoting veterans’ causes through their social media properties and
advertising campaigns; and generating additional revenue that will be used to support the recovery of wounded service members and veterans. Donations will be made in the names of these Universities to organizations that align with OHT’s mission.
We will have a full recap of the awards coming soon!
