There are so many reasons veterans and active-duty military members call MetroPlaces home – from the Lagoon lifestyle to the proximity to MacDill Air Force Base. And these military residents get involved in their communities, whether it’s by attending community events or working at community-hosted farmers markets.

With this in mind, we’re proud to support veterans. This Veterans Day weekend, MetroPlaces invites our community members and their friends and family to participate in two area veteran-focused events.

November 12-13 – Justice for Veterans Benefit Concert

MetroPlaces is sponsoring this event at the OCC Road House Saturday from 7 to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 6:30 p.m. Artists such as Bobby Friss, The Fulcos and U.S. Stones (a Rolling Stones tribute band) will play the main stage over this two-day Veterans Day celebration.

The weekend of music, fun, and classic rock n’ roll is hosted by Bay Area Legal Services, a regional, nonprofit public interest law firm, and proceeds directly benefit veterans in the Tampa Bay area. Tickets are available and can be purchased online.

November 12 – 5k Honor Run Presented by Advent Health of Wesley Chapel

For the second year, MetroPlaces is proud to sponsor the 5K Honor Run.  It begins Saturday at 7:30 a.m. at the Pasco-Hernando State College (Porter) Campus in Wesley Chapel, FL. The event is hosted by the North Tampa Bay Chamber Foundation and Pasco-Hernando State College and all proceeds benefit the PHSC Veteran scholarship and the NTBC Foundation’s Mission.

Want to run to benefit veterans? Registration is open now. All participants will receive a free shirt and goodies from sponsors. In addition, awards will be given in multiple categories from “Top Veterans” to age group and male and female overall awards.
