Fight for the Vets fundraiser held in Lackawanna County

Some good tunes will go a long way in helping veterans in Lackawanna County.

TAYLOR, Pa. — Local bands took the stage at the Union Craft House in Taylor to raise money for veterans.

There was food, drinks, and a safe social distancing atmosphere with heaters and tents for attendees to stay warm.

All of the money raised will benefit the Fight for the Vets.

"There are so many veterans that are friends of mine that serve and they need help. So anything we can do in the music scene that helps makes me happy," said organizer Mike Baresse.

A standup comedian also performed at the fundraiser.
