 VETS FOR VETS MOVE TO THE MANSION

Yakov and Dyer at Mansion Vets for Vets Celebration

Yakov Smirnoff will be featured guest at the 2018 Vets for Vets Celebration Show, 2 p.m. Nov. 5 in the Mansion Theater, 189 Expressway Lane. The celebration, fashioned after a USO-style production, consists of military veteran entertainers or former United Service Organization (USO) alumni
The unique line-up of performing veterans drew Yakov, who has entertained veterans and troops stateside and abroad, to perform at Vets for Vets.
“I love being in Branson and seeing all the Veterans, the active military, and their families,” Smirnoff said. “That's one of the reasons I choose to bring my show back to Branson during Veterans Homecoming Week.”

International vocalist George Dyer will also join the line up of patriotic performers.
“One of my favorite things to do during Homecoming Week is to go to Veterans Village for serving coffee and conversation with the veterans that visit there,” Dyer said. “I love Branson because it is all about showing gratitude to our heroes,”

This will be the show’s seventh year in Branson and Branson's IMAX Entertainment Complex second year as a sponsor.
Paul Bluto, Branson's IMAX Entertainment Complex owner, said sponsoring Vets for Vets again is “our family's way of saying 'thank you.’” The “family” includes McFarlain’s Family and Florentina's Ristorante Italiano.

Built Right Affordable Homes & Structures, a new Vets for Vets co-sponsor, said its contribution is a way to thank the Branson Veterans Task Force.
“The Branson Veterans Task Force is a tremendous asset to our veterans and our community.” said Built Right sales manager Tom Christian. “Thank you for doing all that you do.”

Familiar faces on the Vets for Vets docket include ventriloquist/singer Jim Barber, Barbara Fairchild with Roy Morris, Brandon and Megan Mabe of the
Baldknobbers, The Bretts, Gordy and Debbie, The Sunshine Dancers, with Vietnam Vet Norvin Breek, Broadway performer Peggy Lee Brennan, The Golden Sounds of the Platters with Vietnam veteran Eddie Stovall and more. “Only in America would this be possible,” said Yakov. “That a Russian could become an American, and ‘Make America Laugh Again’! What A Country!” Vets for Vets is a free show for vets and their families. No tickets are issued and seating is on a first come basis. It is one of several events that serve to kick off Veterans Homecoming Week, Nov. 5-11. A donation for the Branson Veterans Task Force (a 501c organization, bransonveterans.com) will be received.
