With his striking resemblance, spot on mannerisms and baritone voice, Shawn Barker embodies the character and spirit of Johnny Cash.
VetFest 141 comes to the brand new Oswego Entertainment Venue, 1010 Station Drive in Oswego, on Thursday, Aug. 26 through Sunday, Aug. 29. The event, organized by the VetFest 141 Foundation, raises funds for local charities with a focus on supporting veterans and the Oswego School District 308. For each ticket purchased, a veteran, first responder and front-line medical professional will get free admission into the event.
A portion of the VetFest 141 proceeds will benefit Kendall County Veterans Assistance, the Fox Valley Veterans Breakfast Club, and the Oswego American Legion.
“Our Veterans and first responders deserve this recognition, but also support throughout the year,” event co-organizer Chris Skilnik said. “We are passionate about giving back to organizations that can provide support for our veterans. This year, we’ve added front-line medical professionals to our list of heroes after all they have been through. We can’t thank you all enough for your service.”
