Lt. Dan Band concert moved from Beaufort to Charleston

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Some big changes have been announced for South Carolina's Lt. Dan Week this year.

Beaufort city officials say Lt. Dan Week will still take place in Beaufort but the showcase event, a concert featuring Gary Sinise's Lt. Dan Band, will be moved to The Citadel in Charleston.

The group that hosts the Lt. Dan events says moving the concert to The Citadel boosts the event's fundraising capability since the Charleston venue has a higher seating capacity.

According to organizers, last year's concert was spilling out of the Waterfront Park in Beaufort, and the Johnson Hagwood Stadium at The Citadel is an "ideal location which can hold and reach more people."

The group raises money for robotic wheelchairs, therapy and other care for veterans.
