NICHOLS, N.Y. (July 11, 2017) – 38 Special will take the stage at Tioga Downs Casino on Friday, July 28 at 8:00 p.m. sponsored personally by Chairman Jeff Gural and his wife Paula.

Originally, the benefit concert was scheduled Saturday, July 1 but was cancelled due to inclement weather. The veterans and military men and women within nine counties in the Southern Tier benefit each year from the concerts proceeds. Jeff and Paula Gural did not want to let down our veterans, military or Tioga Downs patrons.

Starting today at noon through July 20, guests can exchange their July 1 ticket or stub for a July 28 concert ticket. The same seats will be issued for the rescheduled concert as long as guests visit the Tioga Downs Gift Shop by 9:00 p.m., July 20. Guests can still exchange a ticket or stub after July 20 but exchanged concert tickets will be based on seat availability.

Remaining tickets will go on sale for $15 to the general public after July 21 through Ticketmaster or at Tioga Downs Gift Shop. All additional $15 tickets will be matched personally by the Gural’s.

Thanks to the Southern Tier Horsemen, live harness racing that was originally slated for July 28 was cancelled to honor the veterans through this special performance. In exchange for their generosity, Tioga Downs will donate $5,000 to the veterans on behalf of the horsemen.

Together, Tioga Downs and the Southern Tier Veterans Support Group have set a goal to reach over $100,000 to help and aid our veterans in the Southern Tier.
