Sportable was started by Kristen Lessig, a Certified Recreational Therapist and staff member at McGuire Veterans Hospital. Money raised during the event will directly benefit Sportable’s ongoing programs such as Wheelchair Basketball, Soccer, Tennis and Baseball.

“This event is a great opportunity for Beatles and Byrd’s fans to experience the sounds of these legendary bands while giving back to the community” says Lessig.
