Singer-songwriter Darden Smith will be a featured guest in the Quad Cities during a three-day event with the Rock Island Arsenal chapter of the Association of the U.S. Army October 18-20. The event will include a visit to the Rock Island Arsenal Youth Center on both October 18 and 19 where 20 military youth will engage in Smith's established "Be An Artist Program," aiming to encourage creativity through personalized, innovative songwriting sessions. Three 50-minute sessions will bring together students in grades 4, 5 and 6.
The finale fundraiser concert will begin at 7 p.m. at the Adler Theatre, 136 E. Third Street, on Thursday, October 20. All proceeds will benefit soldier support programs funded through AUSA, the voice of the U.S. Army on Capitol Hill and at the grassroots level. The organization’s role as a conduit in aligning resources and needs for soldiers and their families continues to benefit servicemen and women nationwide.
