Schnucks to Host Free Concert with John Rich in Support of Folds of Honor
Country music star will sign bottles of his Redneck Riviera whiskey

ST. LOUIS, June 25, 2019Schnuck Markets, Inc. is inviting customers to join the grocer in supporting Folds of Honor at a free concert featuring country music star John Rich. The concert will take place at Des Peres Park (12325 Manchester Road, Des Peres, 63131) from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, June 29. Proceeds from concession sales will benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, which recognizes the sacrifices of fallen and disabled military veterans by providing educational scholarships to their spouses and children.

Rich, of the country duo Big & Rich, is an avid Folds of Honor supporter and donates 10% of sales from his Redneck Riviera Whiskey to the organization. He will sign bottles of the whiskey during a meet and greet at Schnucks Des Peres on June 29 from 1:30-3 p.m. Bottles will also be available for purchase at the park and Rich will sign some fans’ bottles there.

“We’re excited to partner with John Rich, the City of Des Peres, and our vendor partners for this event,” said Schnucks Vice President of Marketing, Ted Schnuck. “This is a way for us to not only raise money for Folds of Honor, but also to say ‘thank you’ to our customers for being so generous in supporting military families through our ‘Round up at the Register’ campaign.”

Budweiser BBQ Collection Brats from Coleman Natural Foods, Prairie Farms novelty ice cream, and Schnucks water, soda and chips will be available for purchase at the concert, with proceeds benefiting Folds of Honor. Active military members and veterans can show their military ID for a complimentary meal.

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own blankets and lawn chairs to the park. Limited parking is available at Des Peres Park and at the Edward Jones building. In the event of inclement weather on concert day, those planning to attend should check after 3 p.m. for cancellation or delay information.

Customers may donate to Folds of Honor at any Schnucks store through July 4, by rounding up their total purchase to the nearest dollar. This is the second year for the round up campaign to support the nonprofit. Last year’s effort raised $1.1 million from customers, Schnucks, and vendor partners, and provided 220 college scholarships for military family members. Folds of Honor has awarded more than $130 million in scholarships to military spouses and children since 2007.
