It will be held at the Loomis Veterans Memorial Hall, 5925 Horseshoe Bar Rd, in Loomis. Tickets are $15 per person or $25 per couple and available at the Loomis Chamber of Commerce, online at The Forgotten Solider  or by calling 916-660-2059. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The county band, Flat Busted is returning by popular demand, according to Sheila Lee, Red, White and Blue Dance organizer. “The members of Flat Busted are awesome,” said Lee. “They believe in helping veterans and are excited about coming back to Loomis. The crowd loves the music and the way band members interact with the audience. It is a fun night, not to be missed whether you just want to listen to great music or dance.”

The event enables the community to recognize American Armed Forces and Veterans. Funds raised from the dance will be donated to The Forgotten Solider Program, based in Auburn, CA. Founded in 2005, The Forgotten Soldier Program gives veterans and their families hope by providing support services and acknowledgment that their service will not be forgotten.  The organization offers services such as counseling, therapy, nutrition, biofeedback and holistic healing practices.
