OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Two classic rock tribute bands are taking the stage for a good cause. Kanza Hall in Overland Park hosted “Highway to Heaven,” a benefit concert for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Stairway to Heaven (a Led Zepplin tribute band) and KC/DC (covering AC/DC) gave performances to raise money and awareness for the organization.

The Wounded Warrior Project was founded in 2003 with the vision to “foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.”

Event organizer Amanda Martin said thanks to the thousands of dollars in sponsorship money, the Wounded Warrior Project can continue to benefit veterans.

“We are so grateful to have that, it shows a huge sense of community with KC for our veterans, specifically our wounded warriors,” Martin said.
