Hoyt concert raises $1,300

phil-hoyt-025A number of local music fans came out for Phil Hoyt’s benefit concert for Operation Adopt A Soldier on Saturday.

The event kicked off with a two-loop flyover by three planes, piloted by Don Latterall, Merle Latterall and Bernie Baker.

Brittney Donman started the patriotic show by singing the national anthem before Hoyt took the stage and crooned his own tunes.

There were raffle items and armed forces representatives, as well as several classic military vehicles. Stewart’s Shops was on hand with ice cream, and there was other food for sale as well. Representatives from Operation Adopt A Soldier took monetary and item donations and offered information about the organization.

Hoyt said the event raised over $1,300 for the cause, and he is still open for cash donations for those who missed the concert. Those that wish to donate an item or cash to benefit those serving in the armed forces can call 518-337-6789.
