The “Labor of Love Music Festival,” hosted by Case Construction Equipment on Labor Day 2015, attracted roughly 2,000 attendeees and raised $10,000 for Wounded Warrior Project through ticket sales, a silent auction, and a percentage of on-site beverage sales donated by the Racine Civic Centre. Case employees also donated five barrels of food to the Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin, who raised an additional $1,266 through a 50/50 raffle held at the event.
Case launched the festival to raise money for Wounded Warrior Project, and to highlight the role that returning veterans can play in filling skilled jobs in the construction and manufacturing industries.
