You can listen to a terrific concert and help out a very worthy cause, coming up later in this month of July in Texarkana.

The Dusty Rose Band is doing a special concert on Friday July 27 at Scottie’s Grill to benefit the Texarkana Texas Shop with a Cop and Firefighter program. It’s a free concert, but donations for Shop With a Cop and Firefighter will be accepted, plus Scottie’s Grill is donating 10 percent of their proceeds from the day to the program.

For those not familiar with the Shop With a Cop and Firefighter program, it is an annual event held in early December where the Texas side police department partners with Target and CPS to provide 100 local disadvantaged children with a Christmas.

On the day of the event, each child is paired with an police officer or firefighter and given $100 to spend on whatever they want. It is a life changing experience for everyone involved.
