July 26, 2017 – JAC Live and Covelli Enterprises are proud to announce their “Let Freedom Forever Fly” military initiative, which will recognize, honor and send past and present members of the military to Y Live, Youngstown’s first annual music event starring the Grammy Award-winning, American country artist, Zac Brown Band at Youngstown State University’s Stambaugh Stadium on August 24.

JAC Live has put together various packages that individuals and businesses can purchase to sponsor and send local military veterans to the concert. Tickets sponsorships benefit the Student Veterans from Youngstown State University, and Columbiana County, Trumbull County and Mahoning Valley Veteran Services.

“We are fortunate to live in a country that is comprised of so many patriots. It is in that spirit that we developed the ‘”Let Freedom Forever Fly” initiative. Taken from lyrics of Zac Brown Band’s Chicken Fried, we wanted to convey the essence of their song, which is essentially paying tribute to those who have selflessly served our country so that we may enjoy liberties both small and large,” said, Eric Ryan, President and CEO of JAC Live.

To kick-off the military initiative, Sam Covelli, President and CEO of Covelli Enterprises, has graciously agreed sponsor 150 tickets for military personnel. “We are honored to be able to provide our veterans with this once in a lifetime opportunity to see this amazing event in our hometown,” said Sam Covelli, owner of Covelli Enterprises. “We are so thankful for all that our Veterans have done for our country and are always excited to be able to show our appreciation to them.”

Furthermore, Congressman Tim Ryan has also agreed to sponsor 30 tickets for military personnel. “Our active duty military personnel and veterans have sacrificed so much for our great nation. They have earned our reverence and support both abroad and here at home. The least we can do is find small ways to show our appreciation for their dedicated service. I am proud to participate in this initiative to help our troops and veterans enjoy the freedoms they bravely fought to secure,” said Congressman Ryan.
