Varsity Theatre and Bag of Donuts partner with KIDD for benefit concert

BATON ROUGE - The USS KIDD Veterans Museum is hosting a benefit concert at The Varsity Theatre, with special guest Bag of Donuts, on Sunday, Feb. 28.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with The Varsity Theatre for the first time and grateful to Bag of Donuts for helping us raise critical dollars through the ticket sales of this benefit concert," said USS KIDD Executive Director Alejandra Juan.

Profits from the "Here's Looking at You, KIDD" benefit concert will help cover unexpected air conditioning repair costs for the museum.

"When KIDD was launched on Feb. 28, 1943, American citizens on the home front paid for ships like her through war bond purchases, scrap drives, and rationing," said USS KIDD Ship Superintendent Tim NesSmith. "By supporting this benefit concert, the local community has the opportunity to carry on that tradition and help keep KIDD alive for another generation to enjoy."

All guests must be 18 years old or older with proper identification to attend any event at The Varsity Theatre. Tickets are $15.00 in advance and $20.00 on the day of the show.

Tickets are available for purchase at The Chimes Restaurant on Highland Road, over the phone at 866.777.8932 and on-line at .
